Only a handful of ingredients and about 10 minutes of time are needed to make this Red, White & Blue Cheesecake Salad.

First you’ll soften 8 ounces of cream cheese. To do so, let it sit at room temperature for about an hour. If the cream cheese is too cold, you’ll have a really hard time getting it smooth and creamy.

Next you’ll use a hand-held mixer to beat the cream cheese until smooth and then beat 1/2 cup of granulated sugar into it.

Next fold in or mix in an 8-ounce container of Cool Whip that has been thawed.

Finally you’ll gently fold in the marshmallows and fruit and then refrigerate it to get it nice and chilled.

Tips for making:

  • Banana slices can be used instead of marshmallows or in addition to.
  • You can use all raspberries or all strawberries.
  • Reduced-fat cream cheese can be used to cut down on the fat. Splenda and sugar-free Cool Whip can be used to cut down on sugar.
  • Try adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract for extra flavor.
  • A half a cup of sweetened shredded coconut makes a great addition.
