Cheesecake PLUS fruit MINUS the calories. How can if be?!
If you haven’t tried this fruit salad, you are missing out! Since tomorrow is the Fourth of July, I thought this would be a great dish to whip up for fun, festive meal. This fruit salad tastes like a slice of cheesecake in a glass. I love this recipe because it is so versatile–you can add as many different fruits as you’d like and switch them out each time. I chose to add the fruit bananas, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries to make it a festive, Fourth of July themed food!
This fruit salad reminds of a slice of cheesecake with fruit on the side. The cheesecake flavor comes from the pudding which is “cheesecake flavored”. Here’s a link to my favorite brand of the Cheesecake Flavored Pudding Mix–seriously it tastes so good! It is much lower in calories than normal cheesecake because it uses sugar-free pudding, low fat cool whip, and almond milk.
The BEST part of this recipe is that it’s super easy to make. It took about 10 minutes to prep the fruit, combine the pudding and cool whip. This recipe tastes best cold, and I would recommend cooling it in the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving it.
Here’s some super fun bowls to serve your fruit salad in! These would work great for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and even Labor Day celebrations!
