Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad
SERVES 8 | ACTIVE TIME 15 Min | TOTAL TIME 15 Min
- 1 pound strawberries, hulled and cut into quarters
- 1 (9 ounce) container blueberries, washed and dried (remove stems)
- 1 (9 ounce container) raspberries, rinsed and dried
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 1/2 cup Simply Pure Vanilla Coffee Creamer
In a medium tall bowl, using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is and it will loosen up.
With mixer running slowly add creamer to the cream cheese. Add it about a tablespoon at a time and then mix until it becomes a smooth mixture and all of the creamer has combined into the cream cheese. Continue until all of the creamer has been added to the cream cheese. Whip until smooth.
Combine berries in a large bowl. Gently fold in cheesecake mixture until completely combined.
Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.
