Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad

July 4th is coming up, and Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad seemed like the perfect dessert to go with the BBQ ribs I made earlier this week. Cheesecake and fresh fruit are two things I adore, but I’ve never actually tried making a cheesecake. One day, but this seemed far, far easier.

Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad comes together so easy with fresh fruit and a rich and creamy cheesecake filling to create the most glorious fruit salad ever! Every bite is absolutely bursting with summer flavor and you are going to go nuts over this recipe!

The Ingredients

The strawberries smelled so good, it was hard not to eat a few while I took this picture! As you can see, there was nothing hard to find or unusually expensive needed. The French vanilla creamer was the priciest item at $3.67, but I have lots left over for my coffee since I only needed a cup for this recipe.

The Process

This was pretty quick and easy to put together. It took me about 7 minutes to slice the strawberries and bananas, and another 13 to put everything together. I’m pretty pleased with the results after 20 minutes of work đŸ™‚

Definitely follow Donna’s advice and add the creamer slowly. I spent about 10 minutes alone on the cheesecake mixture, but I ended up with a very smooth mixture. Also, I let the cream cheese sit out a room temperature to soften for about 30 minutes. I think it helped keep the beaters from clogging.

Finally, use a mesh colander over your mixing bowl when you juice the lemon. As you can see, it kept a lot of seeds and pulp out of the bananas.

I loved this recipe! The combination of vanilla cheesecake with fresh bananas, strawberries and blueberries is just spectacular! Mixing the cream cheese does take a little patience, but the reward is well worth it. This really is as close as you can get to a fruity cheesecake in just 20 minutes.
