The flavor has been punched up with a secret ingredient and you are going to go nuts over this recipe! The king of the potluck table has arrived.

A few months back I put together this Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad. Well, needless to say it has gone completely crazy on our site. It is already the #2 recipe of all time.

Our readers have enjoyed it so much that I though it was time to whip up a twist on the uber popular recipe.

I have been on a pudding kick lately. I tell you, I have been testing several recipes with pudding as a surprise ingredient.

It is crazy how much pudding mix amps up the flavor of a recipe.

So, when I was thinking of ways to twist up the cheesecake salad, I knew I needed to use pudding. It really kicks it up a notch.

I combined cream cheese, pudding mix and coffee creamer to create a spectacular rich and creamy cheesecake filling.

In the fruit mixture, I squeezed fresh lemon juice over sliced strawberries and bananas.

That prevents the bananas from browning, but it also gives the cheesecake salad a little brightness and zing!

This new summer salad is so good it is sure to take the place of your favorite fruit salad.

And say goodbye to Aunt Ida’s ambrosia salad and HELLO to Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad. The new queen of the summer picnic table.

We couldn’t stop eating it, and you’re going to go bananas over it too! <- Sorry, pun intended. I couldn’t help myself.

Helpful Tips for Making Cheesecake Salad:

  • Do not pour all of the creamer into the cream cheese at once. It will get clumpy and no matter how long you beat it, it will stay that way. Trust me on this one.
  • If you have to substitute for the creamer, use 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  • To make this ahead: prepare the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate in a bowl. Mix all of the fruit in a large bowl and refrigerate.

    Before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit and then fold the cheesecake filling into the fruit. Serve and enjoy!

Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Course Salad
Cuisine American
Method Mixed
Servings 16 (1/2 cup) servings

Ingredients
 

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3.4 ounces instant cheesecake pudding mix, unprepared
  • 1/4 cups liquid vanilla coffee creamer
  • 2 pounds strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced into coins
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • In a tall, medium bowl, use an electric mixer on medium-high speed to whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is – it will loosen up. Add dry pudding mix and continue mixing until well combined.
  • With mixer continuously running on medium-low speed, add creamer to the cream cheese mixture, about a tablespoon at a time. When all creamer is added, turn mixer speed to high and whip until smooth.
  • In a large bowl, combine sliced strawberries, banana coins and lemon juice. Stir until all the fruit is coated with lemon juice. Add cheesecake mixture to the bowl and use a mixing spatula or spoon to gently fold cheesecake mixture into the fruit.
  • Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.

  1. I made this and just used the big tub of Philadelphia cheesecake filling and added the fruit to it!! It was fantastic and super super easy!

  2. I made this and just used the big tub of premade phillidelphia cheesecake and it turned out fantastic!

  3. Can you use the pre-made cheese cake filling and add the fruit, thus skipping the cream cheese, pudding mix, etc…?

  4. This sounds so yummy as is but I also read someone asked about adding Angel food cake, I think that would be yummy as well, thank you for sharing

  5. GEEZ! How many of you are going to ask the same question about substituting the creamer??? The substitution is addressed in Donna's Notes in the recipe. READ PEOPLE!!!!

  6. Could one substitute yogurt for the cream and add the powdered sugar as recommended for heavy cream. A little more protein but less fat.

  7. Have made this but it also had kiwi & mango with pinapple added. Took it to our church dinner & it was gone in no time. Everyone just loved it. But it took some prep time. Worth it though.

  8. I just made this salad and it's is great tasting and very easy too make. Can't wait for the next resipiee Yolanda Broadfoot

    1. Okay…I feel stupid. When your recipe called for coffee creamer, I assumed it was the "powered" coffee creamer. The recipe never said "liquid" coffee creamer! I ended up with a huge ball of dry stuff! I ended up adding a little of half and half "liquid" creamer. Was your recipe supposed to mean "liquid" coffee creamer?…

  9. in the receipt it calls for one 3.4oz package of pudding so i put in three one oz. packages. the batter is so so thick that i am going to have to add a lot more creamer. did i read the receipt wrong? hopefully it will work out. did i do something wrong?

  10. Is there a sub for the cheesecake pudding? Maybe a different flavour? I can't find it here in Canada.

  11. Is there a mistake in the recipe when it says 3.4 oz of the pudding? I could only find 1 oz boxes, and another commenter said they tried to use three and it didn’t turn out right…..

    1. Is the 1-oz box sugar free? Sugar free boxes don't weigh as much as regular, so it's less weight for the same amount of pudding.

  12. This dessert is so dang good. But yet you could ad so much more to it, vanilla wafers or nuts of some kind or even more kinds of fruit.

  13. Should really add to the recipe that it is liquid creamer and not powdered. I went and bought dry creamer, now I have to go buy the liquid. Wish I would of known ahead of time. Glad I read the comments.

    1. If it says creamer, it means liquid creamer, if it was dry, she would have written that. If a recipe calls for creamer, it means liquid!! The recipe doesn't need redone.

  14. I made this for Mother's day. I couldn't find cheesecake pudding mix in Canada so swapped it out for vanilla. It was such a hit, only ended up serving 4. No leftovers. Raves and requests each week for more! Thank you 🙂

  15. DONNA, CAN YOU USE THE CHEESECAKE FILLING ALREADY MIXED FROM WALMART AND THEN ADD THE COFFEE CREAMER TO THAT

  16. DONNA, WAS JUST WONDERING IF YOU CAN USE THAT PREMADE CHEESECAKE FILLING ALONG WITH THE COFFEE CREAMER INSTEAD OF THE PUDDING MIX AND CREAM CHEESE

  17. I made the fruit salad yesterday everyone loved it. It was so DELICIOUS…… I'm making it again today. Thank you so much.

  18. This came out so good! Better than expected! Instead of vanilla creamer I used caramel coconut latte and it’s Devine!!
