Fresh fruit is a favorite at our house. So when a recipe like Cheesecake Fruit Salad appears for supper, the family gobbles it up. Besides the fruit, it is two ingredients. That’s right, two.
So I may have mentioned my 40 lbs of blueberries already. I may have mentioned the bushels of peaches we buy. Yes, fresh fruit is appreciated at our house. And I love to come up with new recipes to use it up. Cheesecake Fruit Salad is such a recipe.
Easy, only two ingredients (minus the fruit you put in it) and extremely flavorful, this fruit salad will be the talk of the table.
I even made a video of this recipe, using my new iPhone. We needed new phones in the worst way, because my phone was extremely ancient and had an interesting strobe light effect that happened all the time.
An iPhone wasn’t really on my radar except when it came to iMovie. I had heard it was all the rage and after trying it for the cheesecake fruit salad, I would have to agree. So if you want to make movies and videos, find a way to get iMovie. Trust me. You can see my video here. (And follow me on Facebook too if you would like!) 🙂
Cheesecake Fruit Salad
Decide what fruit you will want in this fruit salad. I went with blueberries (as we have an over abundance of them!) and peaches (same reason). Grapes were also added in because they were $.99 at Kroger’s and gotta grab things on sale, right?
The mixture is a cream cheese and coffee creamer mixture. You know, that coffee creamer gets used for many, many things, not just for coffee! Good stuff. 😉 Sweet Cream by International Delight is a hubby favorite. It was also used in my Vanilla Orange Frosty. If you want to not have so much dairy in the mix, you can add almond milk to the cream cheese in place of the creamer. I would use vanilla almond milk.
You don’t have to do this of course, but as I finished with this salad, I wished I had made some granola to go on top. Wouldn’t a crunchy topping be perfect on here? I think so too. Either way, your family will love this salad.
