This looks SO yummy and SO easy. I would completely ignore how many calories are potentially in this salad but it has to be healthy since it is fruit right? Haha
This will look so patriotic for your 4th of July picnic or backyard BBQ.
Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad
SERVES 16 | ACTIVE TIME 15 Min | TOTAL TIME 15 Min
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1 (3.4-ounce) package instant cheesecake pudding, unprepared
1 cup International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
1 pound strawberries, cut into bite-size pieces
2 (6-ounce) containers blueberries
4 large bananas, sliced
juice of 1 lemon
In a medium tall bowl, using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is and it will loosen up. Add the dry pudding mix. Beat until well combined.
With the mixer on low, slowly add the creamer to the cream cheese mix (if you add it all at once the mixture will become clumpy and stay that way). Add it about a tablespoon at a time and then mix until it becomes a smooth mixture and all of the creamer has combined into the cream cheese, repeat until all of the creamer has been added to the mixture. Whip until smooth. Refrigerate while you prepare the fruit.
In a large bowl, combine lemon juice and bananas. Stir to coat bananas completely and pour off any excess lemon juice. Add strawberries and blueberries. Gently stir to combine. Fold the cheesecake mixture into the fruit.
Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.
