Very Berry Cheesecake Salad

Fresh berries combine with a creamy cheesecake fluff.  This is so amazing and will be the hit of any gathering!


I am loving the fresh and delicious berries that are starting to pop up in the stores right now.  I love fresh fruit!   We eat so much fruit around here it is crazy.  I am always trying to think of yummy ways to use up our fruit.  I needed a side to take to a gathering and this idea popped into my head.

Why don’t I make a creamy cheesecake fluff for this fruit to get mixed with?  Cheesecake+Fruit?  What’s not to love!?


So I combined two of my favorite things for one amazing result!   It was simple to throw together and the fruit was so delicious buried inside this cheesecake fluff.  It was sweet, and creamy and made one amazing side!

This side was such a hit.  The bowl was completely scraped clean and everyone raved about it.

I know that you will love it just as much as we did!  It is sure to be the hit of your gathering and is the perfect side.

  1. Made this yesterday for a family BBQ, and it was a total hit!! People were raving about it and asking for the recipe!! So simple to make and so light and refreshing! I made it exactly as written except I doubled the recipe, and it was all gone except for a little that I hid away for myself for later!! Thanks for sharing!! ?

  2. How much whipped cream would you use instead of cool whip we eat very clean and cool whip is full of chemicals.

    1. You are welcome to try it! Sometimes fruit dips don’t last as long in the fridge or the cream will turn more of another color. Let me know how it turns out and enjoy it at church tomorrow!! Thanks for choosing one of my recipes! XOXO

  3. Made the Very Berry Cheesecake recipe using just strawberries and blueberries. Delicious! What is the nutrition values for the dessert?

    1. I like to use or for any nutritional questions I may have. Hope that you can use the same and find the answers you are looking for. Thanks so much for following along with me! XOXO

  4. I made this today and discovered it is delicious! I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and it is plenty sweet. It is fast and easy, very filling, and satisfying. I would like it more as a dessert. If I are it with my meal, it would fill me up too much for the rest of the meal. A great summer dish for company or to bring to a gathering.

    1. haha! You are right! It is rare that we have leftovers but I do love my food saver if I am freezing anything and then Tupperware for any leftovers for the week. Hope that helps! XOXO

  5. Made this for mt 4th of July party and everyone loved it. I also served it with graham crackers on the side so you could dip them in it which made it taste even better in my eyes.
