Strawberry Cheesecake Salad

I love anything that has to do with cheesecake.  I mean who doesn’t?  This is my go to recipe for any get together.  It is always a huge hit and people are asking for the recipe.  I love it because it is so easy to make and it makes the most perfect delicious side.    This salad was very creamy and the mixture of strawberries and bananas went together perfectly.  This is the perfect salad for any potluck or BBQ and guaranteed to be a hit!strawberry-cheesecake-saladresize

Strawberry Cheesecake Salad
This salad can be made with or without marshmallows. I have made it with both and it is still delicious without. It would also be great with other fruit mixed in. Rating: 5 stars
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 12 oz whipped topping
  • 1 small package of cheesecake pudding powder
  • 3 (6 oz) strawberry yogurt
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries
  • 3 bananas sliced (add right before serving)
  • miniature marshmallows (optional)
  1. Thaw whipped topping. I always put it in the fridge the night before. In a large salad bowl mix yogurt, pudding, and whipped topping together. Put in fridge and allow it to set up for about an hour.
  2. Wash and slice strawberries. Add strawberries, marshmallows, and bananas right before serving. Keep refrigerated.

  3. About how much does this make

  4. This looks amazing! I featured it on my 12 Super Summer Sides Round-Up. Thanks for doing all you do Alyssa! xo-Brook

  5. So you don’t actually make the pudding with milk first? You’re just using the powder?

  6. Katherine Meyer says:

    I just made this and it’s pretty good. I recommend leaving out the marshmallows though. It doesn’t need them and they seem to be a weird texture compared to the rest of it. I added graham cracker crumbs to it though, which I definitely recommend! As for with the pudding, you are just using the powder.

  7. So is it 6 oz yogurt all together or 3/6 oz containers?

  8. D. Willibey says:

    This sounds good and use it as a dip with graham crackers or the little teddy bear graham crackers!

  9. Melanie says:

    How many does the recipe serve?

  10. I can’t find cheesecake pudding!!!,

    • I have also run into the problem of a store not carrying it so I substituted with vanilla in a pinch. Still yummy!

    • I couldn’t find it either so I used the no bake cheesecake powder…with the 18 ounces of yogurt and the cool whip plus the fruit of strawberries and blueberries instead of bananas it all worked out fine…I did add some mini marshmallows but really not a whole bag as another site called for…
      They devoured it!
      So if you like me can’t find cheesecake pudding substitute the no bake cheesecake powder..

      • Jackie, that is a great idea! We have cheesecake pudding mix readily available here, but I’ve gone out of state to visit family and haven’t been able to find that variety of pudding anywhere near where they live. (We take turns with the meals at our family get-togethers, and I had this recipe planned for my night to cook.) Problem solved!! Thank you!

  11. I made this last week &, although it was quite yummy, it was a little less cheesecake-y than I was hoping. So…I made it again, this time substituting a vanilla yogurt for one of the strawberry yogurts. I also added a second pkg of cheesecake pudding powder. Much more cheesecake-y (thicker too). I also used it top a bowl of fresh fruit (sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, & blueberries) instead of mixing the fruit in. The fruit stayed fresher that way & it made the cheesecake-y goodness last even longer. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    • I agree. It is amazing but I was hoping it would be a little cheesecake-y-er. Haha I am thinking that the next time that I make this I am going to whip cream cheese with some sugar and vanilla and then fold the jello pudding in along with the strawberries and cheesecake. 🙂

      • That sounds like an excellent idea – I may have to try that too!

        • I believe this may be the recipe I have been searching for or quite similiar after enjoying at a church potluck. They added chocolate shavings or you could use mini chocolate chips it was delicious!

    • How can we substitute something more ‘real’ than Cool Whip? Getting away from so much ‘fake’ made-from-oil stuff.

      • Get heavy whipping cream in the little cartons and make the whipped topping yourself! Whip it extra thick with beaters or a mixer and add 1/2 package more of the powdered cheesecake.

  12. I made this and was really good. I made it again and spread it on a strawberry cake, like icing, it was out of this world.

  13. Everything looks good is there a cookbook?

  14. Can you freeze this before you add the fruits? Say take out a cup to eat now with a half banana and a couple strawberries and then out the rest in a freezer container?

  15. I have never heard or seen cream cheese powder. Where would a person buy that. In Canada???

  16. Jackie Martin says:

    I wonder how this recipe would be with diced angel food cake in place of the marshmallows? Or crumbled ginger snaps?

  17. I bought the cheesecake pudding jello brand at my local grocery store it took five or six different ones for me to find it I’m just now getting ready to make it and I can’t wait thanks for the recipe

  18. I will be adding 8 oz softened and whipped cream cheese!

  19. Michaela conzett says:

    if ya don’t have the pudding could u substitute with actual cheesecake filling??

  20. Cindi H says:

    I recommend using the Jello No Bake Cheesecake mix in the box. Recipe is very easy to make. You will find that you have a large bowl to serve when all mixed together.

  21. I think instead of using the cheesecake pudding mix powder you could use the Philadelphia nobake cheesecake filling that is avaliable in the tub in the Grocery store

    1 bag of marshmallows
    16 oz vanilla yogurt
    1 reg tub of cool whip
    nobake cheesecake filling
    stir in strawberries, bananas, or your favorite fruit
    you could also cut of some small square pieces of angle food cake to mix in and use 1/2 bag of marshmallows

  22. Samalama says:

    I couldn’t find cheesecake powder so I substituted Hershey’s white chocolate powder. We also used an 8-oz tub of Cool Whip and 10.6 oz of Greek strawberry yogurt, again, due to what we could find. Great stuff, and I don’t think I’d switch to the regular recipe due to how much I like this one! I don’t think I’d like the bananas and marshmallows on top, but that is of course personal preference and other people might love it. Thanks for the recipe, we all love it.

  23. Did you use the “instant” version of cheesecake pudding?

  24. Heather says:

    I used Greek yogurt as well graham cracker crumbs on the top and it was a hit at the graduation party. I actually TRIPLED the batch and it was almost gone by the end of the night. Thank you very much for sharing this awesome recipe!!!!

  25. Debra Dildine says:

    It would be good with pound cake that you put little pineapple juice poured over it not a lot don’T Want T soak it.than freeze part way.than take out and cut in cubes and add.also pineapple chunks added.makes it so great.

  26. Nora Hollenbeck says:

    These recipe’s are great keep them coming.

  27. I made this for the 4th of July last year and it was a huge hit! I’ve had requests to bring it to every get together. I’m not a fan of marshmallows so I leave those out and put blueberries in to make it red, white and blue 🙂
