This recipe is the result of a direct request from one of my readers. (Thanks, Dianne!) The original recipe can be found here. The original recipe uses prepared Cool Whip and sugar, both of which are not Trim Healthy Mama Friendly. With a few simple changes, this recipe is completely on-plan as an “S” Fuel.
I served this for supper this week, and just like that, it was GONE! My kids were so concerned that they were not going to be able to have seconds. (No worries, we ALL had seconds of this salad!) It was so delicious!
It is cool and creamy, with bursts of sweet berry flavor. It will be a summertime favorite at my house. In fact, maybe that is part of the reason why it was so delicious – it tastes like summer! Here in Montana, the days are finally getting warmer, but it hardly feels like summer yet. Summer is a long time coming this year, it seems!
I think this definitely tastes better after it has sat in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. That gives it time for the flavors to meld together. And what flavors! Cheesecake and berries – all in one!
Feel free to switch up the amounts of berries to your liking. (However, do be careful with the blueberries, as they are a bit higher in carbs.) You need 6 cups of berries for this salad.
