STRAWBERRY BANANA CHEESECAKE SALAD


There’s just something about the combination of strawberries and bananas. When I was a little girl and feeling sick, my mom would make me warm jello water with the strawberry banana flavor and I swear it had healing properties, lol. For Mother’s Day, I made my mom the creamy Orange Fluff and thought what other kind of creamy fruit salad can I concoct? I had some very nice strawberries and while strawberry season here is another few weeks away, the Driscoll brand is always very nice and flavorful. 
Yum


This recipe has no jello in it but it does have Jell-O brand Cheesecake pudding flavor and it is delicious!! I put bowls of this in my summer working boy’s lunches and they loved it. Mr. Nine and I teased that this was another creation we could grab spoons and eat right from the bowl!



What you'll Need

Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad 
INGREDIENTS
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant cheesecake pudding, unprepared
3-4 Tablespoons Vanilla Coffee Creamer (any kind)
1 (8-oz) tub Lite Cool Whip topping, thawed
1 (16-oz) strawberries, hulled and sliced
3 medium bananas, sliced

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. Add dry pudding mix. Beat until well combined. With mixer running slowly add creamer to the cream cheese mix. 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. Continue until all of the creamer has been added to the cream cheese. Whip until smooth. In a large bowl, combine sliced strawberries, banana slices and lemon juice. Stir until all the fruit is coated with lemon juice. Add cheesecake mixture to fruit. Gently fold cheesecake mixture into fruit. Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.

  6. Any type of cheesecake salad winds up being something I'm likely to sit down with the whole bowl & a spoon. Blueberry cheesecake salad is my favorite.

  14. Oh my gosh, YUM! I am hoping to go strawberry picking with the kids next week. I always love to whip up a few strawberry recipes every year after we go. I have an entire 'strawberry' pin board, just for this reason. This looks delicious! Except, my husband hates bananas, but that just means more for me and the kiddos! ha, ha! ;)

  15. Well, I don't care for banana's but bet I could make this with banana's only and it would still be very good. Might have to try it.

    You had me at cheesecake. When you say coffee creamer, do you mean the liquid kind or dry kind ?
