Strawberry Cheesecake Salad
Strawberry Cheesecake Salad Ingredients:
- Whipped topping: Thaw in refrigerator overnight.
- Cheesecake pudding powder: The cheesecake flavor of pudding gives this fruit salad the richness of cheesecake with a less dense consistency.
- Strawberry yogurt: The creaminess of the yogurt mixes perfectly with the pudding and whipped topping to make a soft and sweet filling.
- Fresh strawberries: Dry after slicing to keep them from getting mushy.
- 3 bananas: Slice and wait to add to the salad until the last minute to keep it as fresh as possible.
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows: Optional, but its my kids’ favorite part of this salad!
How do you make Strawberry Cheesecake Salad?
- Thaw the whipped topping. In a large salad bowl mix together the yogurt, pudding and whipped topping. Put in the fridge and allow to set up for an hour.
- Wash and slice the strawberries. Add them to the mixture with the. marshmallows. Add in the bananas right before serving. Keep refrigerated.
How do you keep fruit salad fresh?
- Keep fruit dry: Any water that is present will cause the produce to soften faster. Keep air off of it and dry your fruit after you wash it. Save problem produce like bananas and add right before serving.
- Store fruit separately from cheesecake mixture: When making this recipe ahead of time, prepare the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate in a bowl. Separately, mix all the fruit in a large bowl and refrigerate. Then, before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit. Finally, fold the cheesecake filling into the fruit and its ready to be served and enjoyed!
Tips for making Strawberry Cheesecake Salad:
- Slice strawberries with a sturdy egg slicer for even pieces.
- Add the fruit just before serving so it doesn’t get mushy or discolored.
Variations for Cheesecake Salad:
- If you cannot find a 5.1 oz (large) box of instant cheesecake pudding mix, use 1 ½ small (3.4 oz) boxes.
- For extra tanginess, use some sour cream in place of some of the yogurt.
- The amount of strawberries used will depend on how much fruit-to-fluff that you want.
- You can add any fruit you want to this incredibly versatile salad! Some great choices are pineapple, mango, mandarin oranges, grapes, kiwis, raspberries, blackberries, or melons..

is that regulator pudding or instant pudding?
You can use either since you aren’t actually making the pudding, just using the powder!
The ingredients list show 3(6ounce) strawberry yogurt. Does that mean 3 x 6 ounces for a total of 18 ounces of yogurt OR 6 ounces in total ? Thank you.
18 ounces of yogurt. I usually buy mine in the six ounce size so you will need three of them.
Thank you. I am in Canada and the cheesecake pudding is not available here. Any suggestions for using another flavor ? TIA.
Your Directions call for bananas, However, I see no bananas in the ingredients list.
Hello! They are listed on the recipe card at the bottom of the post! Let me know if you have any more questions! 🙂
Notes read: * Do not pour all the creamer in at once. Instead add it in gradually to keep the cream cheese from getting lumpy. I understand from a previous message, you no longer use creamer but cream cheese is not included in the ingredients listing either. I’m confused but it looks delicious! Add cream cheese?
There is no creamer or cream cheese in this recipe. I have made sure that the recipe card is correct! Go ahead and follow all of the ingredients and directions on the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This salad is SO delicious. You must let me know how it turns out for you!
Do you prepare the pudding or just use the powder?
You just use the powder!
I think you did a miss spell. I hope that putting is supposed to be pudding. I’m going to take it as such
By the way.i really your recipes. I have tried several and have enjoyed everyone
Thank you and God bless
You don’t say whether or not to slice the strawberries. I plan on slicing the strawberries for this and it may be just common knowledge or Just kind of obvious but I guess I would think you would put that in the recipe. Whole strawberries might be kind of odd in this dish.
Definitely slice the strawberries! Let me know what you think!
In the tips and variations, you mention adding creamer a bit at a time and substitution for creamer, but you do not have creamer listed in the ingredients, either in the body of the post or in the recipe card. Is this an omission?
The recipe has been updated and I no longer use the creamer! Sorry for the confusion, I will fix that!
Oh, these colours!!! I’m drooling! Strawberries are my absolute favourite! The strawberry season is getting close so this could easily be my next experiment 🙂
The small package of cheesecake pudding powder I have is only 1 oz.
Recipe calls for 3.4oz. Should I use 3 boxes of that size?
Yes, you will want to use 3 of them.
