Step 4: Fold together until ingredients are well combined. Since it’s best served chilled, you’ll also want to refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure your cream cheese has softened before you start, otherwise your fluff could end up lumpy.
  • Be gentle when folding in the fruit. The raspberries are fragile and can easily break apart if stirred too vigorously.
  • Chill before serving. It helps the flavors meld together and makes it easier to serve as well.
  • While we usually serve this in a large bowl, it’s also the perfect dish to serve in individual cups with some of those cute mini spoons. I mean, what’s more fun than mini desserts, right?

Substitutions and Variations

  • You can substitute low fat Cool Whip or whipped heavy cream for regular Cool Whip.
  • Feel free to add in any of your favorite fruits, such as bananas, blackberries, or peaches. Fresh fruit is best, since frozen fruit could make your salad too watery.
  • Experiment with different toppings. You can sprinkle graham crackers over the top or even chopped nuts to add a little crunch.

How do I store berry cheesecake salad?

This dish will taste best if served the same day it is made, but it will still last in the fridge for up to 2 days if stored in an airtight container.

What’s the best way to serve this?

Serve it as a dip with your favorite cookies, graham crackers, or animal crackers, use it as a topping for angel food cake, or put it in dessert cups and eat it like a fruit salad.
