How to prepare Red white and blue cheesecake salad?

The first step is preparing fruit. Wash and clean the berries, then dry them. Strawberries should be cut into smaller pieces. 

Second step is making cheesecake filling. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract at a low speed with an electric mixer until it gets smooth. Next, add heavy whipping cream and mix at high speed until it gets a smooth creamy texture and thickens. 

Step three is folding in fresh berries. Place berries over the cheesecake filling and fold gently until the berries are spread evenly. Cover the desserts with a lid and refrigerate it for no longer than three hours.

Tips and Tricks:

Berries need to be fresh and not too soft, so as not to fall apart. Make sure the berries are ripe, otherwise the salad will taste sour. Berries should be dried after washing, this will prevent water from spoiling cheesecake filling. 

Make sure that cream cheese has softened – keep it at room temperature for at least 30 min, possibly 1h.

Always use cooled heavy whipping cream, because it’s easier to beat it. 

Add sugar to your taste – if you want a lower amount and less calories, then add sugar gradually, until the taste is right. Do the same if you like your salad sweeter. 

It is best to make this salad a few hours before serving and keep it in the fridge. If  you have to prepare it a day earlier, I advise you to wrap the cheesecake filling and leave it in the fridge and on the serving day just mix it with berries.  

Can frozen berries be used instead?

I suggest using fresh berries, because frozen ones are filled with water and it can ruin the texture of this lovely salad. If using frozen berries is your only option, then defrost it completely and then dry it well. It’s best to use a colander and leave berries in it, until the liquid is gone.  

Can low fat cream cheese be used instead of regular one?

Absolutely. Your Red white and blue salad will have less calories in that case. 

Can a cool whip be used instead of heavy whipping cream? 

I prefer heavy whipping cream in this salad, although cool whip can be used instead. 8 ounces will be enough. 

Can any other fruit be used?

Absolutely.  Bananas, blackberries, pineapples… or make your own combination of fruit.
