Fluffy Cheesecake Fruit Salad [+ Video]


This cheesecake fruit salad is awesome for a side at a potluck or BBQ or even as a dessert! Plus it’s so easy it’s foolproof! The perfect summer salad!

Ummmmm I could eat this berry cheesecake salad recipe for the rest of my life and die happy. Seven years ago we posted this recipe and I’ve been waiting all winter for berry season to hit so we could bring this recipe back to the front for everyone to enjoy.

It’s sweet deliciousness. It seems a little wrong to take all of those healthy berries and turn them into a calorie fest with everything you put in this dish, but guess what, WORTH IT!!

Seriously, you should all make this on a perfect sunny day and eat outside with the family. Or maybe take it to a BBQ so everyone can ask you what the amazing recipe is.

Cheesecake Fruit Salad Ingredients

This fruit salad recipe is so versatile. I’m going to list out the ingredients that we love, but know from the start that you can totally swap out different fruits or flavors of yogurt. Here is what you will need:

  • Instant Cheesecake Pudding: You want just the pudding powder to add that yummy cheesecake flavor.
  • Cool Whip: adds sweetness and creaminess
  • Strawberry Yogurt: adds more fruity flavor and creaminess to the salad
  • Bananas: cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • Strawberries: stem removed and sliced
  • Raspberries: left whole but rinsed
  • Optional: Blueberries, Blackberries, Peaches, Cherries or Grapes
  • Graham Crackers: If you really want to make this salad taste like a true cheesecake, add crushed up graham cracker.

PRO TIP: After trying many different combinations of fruit in this recipe, I’ve decided my favorite concoction is fresh bananas, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, fresh raspberries and fresh blackberries. So fresh! Haha!

The measurements for each ingredient can be found in the recipe card at the end of this post.

How to Make Cheesecake Fruit Salad

One of my favorite things about this side dish is that it couldn’t be easier! Just two quick steps and you have a delicious fruit salad.

  1. In a large bowl, mix the pudding powder, whipped topping and yogurt together.
  2. Add the fruit and carefully fold it into the creamy cheesecake mixture. Then let it chill in fridge until it’s ready to serve (at least 30 minutes).

These instructions can also be found in the recipe card below where you can also print or save the recipe.

How Do You Keep Fruit Salad Fresh?

Add a little lemon or lime juice to your fruit salad to stop fruits from oxidizing, and keep your fruit salad in the refrigerator to keep it from going mushy.

This should keep your salad “fresh” for at least the following day.

Is Fruit Salad a Salad or a Dessert?

Refreshing fruit salad is perfect as a side dish or a healthy dessert.

I looooooove how creamy it is and the cheesecake pudding gives it so much more deliciousness!!! And the best part is that it’s easily adaptable to any personal preferences, add blueberries, forget the peaches, etc.

Can I Use Frozen Berries?

I wouldn’t recommend using frozen berries in this recipe. The texture ends up mushy and frozen berries release extra juices. Definitely stick with fresh fruit for this recipe.

Where Can I Find Cheesecake Pudding Mix?

Jello brand makes it, you should find it in any grocery store where they sell pudding/gelatin.

What to Eat with Berry Cheesecake Salad

Storing Berry Cheesecake Salad

Store this fruit salad in the refrigerator all the way up until serving. Then store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will keep for up to 2-3 days.

This recipe will not freeze well, so I don’t recommend trying to freeze it.
