Wait…salad? Really? Where are the greens? Yeah, that’s what I assumed too. This is extra like a cross between a no bake strawberry cheesecake; a fruit salad (um, with solely strawberries); and cream. Hmmm. But the truth that it has the phrase salad within the title makes it acceptable, proper? No, I do know I can’t get away with that assertion however we will all dream.
Strawberry Coconut Cheesecake Salad… It’s just like a parfait however with no layering vital! Ripe and juicy strawberries (or any berry/ies of your selection) smothered with a simple to make thick and creamy cheesecake cream! YUM!
Most recipes for this in style ‘salad’ name for pudding mixes, marshmallows, heavy whipped cream and mixing banana slices by means of it. I can’t think about a cheesecake something made up of solely flavoured dry pudding combine. I imply, why use pudding combine when you need to use the actual factor?
I selected to go away out the bananas and changed them with toasted coconut flakes and shredded (or desiccated) coconut so as to add texture and additional crunch! A spring/summer time style sensation in a bowl.
To healthify-ish this salad, I made coconut whipped cream and used that as an alternative of whipping cream (however you can use whipping cream for those who don’t like coconut cream)…… As it occurs, I’ve cans of coconut milk dwelling in my fridge for emergencies comparable to this one. Or for once I want a fast batch of 3-ingredient chocolate mousse…..for instance.
….. after which, I used actual cream cheese as an alternative of a field mixture of fake cream cheese.
Then combine it via your berries! That’s it! I hope you take pleasure in it!
