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.
Probably one of the things I love most about this Cheesecake Berry Salad is that it is so easy to make!
Wash and dry your berries, slice the strawberries, beat the cream cheese and cream, fold it all together, and you’re done!
It does not take long to put it together, and everyone loves it. I have a lot of readers tell me they have taken it to picnics or potlucks and it all gets eaten!
No-one even knows that they are eating something sugar free and low carb!
Actually, that is one of my tactics for going to parties, picnics, or potlucks!
If everyone is to bring a dish to share, I like to take something that I can eat, so I know I will at least have one option. (And many times there are a lot of options!)
Then, if anyone compliments the dish, you can tell them that is was sugar free (or low carb, or whatever). Or you can keep it a secret! (Guess I’ve done that, too!)
I served this Cheesecake Berry Salad 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 actually 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.)
A lot of readers have asked if they can use frozen berries in place of the fresh.
The short answer is yes, but it may make your salad a bit watery as they defrost, and it will most likely turn your salad purple! (But it should still taste great!)
You need 6 cups of berries for this salad.
