Key Ingredients to Make Strawberry Cheesecake Salad

This strawberry fluff recipe is pretty straightforward and minimal! Just be sure to pay attention to the temperature of certain ingredients.

  • STRAWBERRIES – You will need diced strawberries for this recipe. I used fresh strawberries, but you could even use frozen strawberries that have been thawed.
  • SUGAR – Both powdered and granulated sugar are needed for this strawberry fluff salad. 
  • CREAM CHEESE – Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature!
  • HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM – Cold cream whips up the best.
  • VANILLA – To add a sweet, warm flavor to your strawberry cheesecake salad.
  • MARSHMALLOWS – I like to use miniature marshmallows because they’re smaller and easier to work with.
  • GRAHAM CRACKERS – Get a bag of graham crackers and crush them into crumbs for the crunchy topping.
  • BUTTER – All good desserts feature butter!

What is strawberry fluff?

Strawberry cheesecake fluff is a fluffy dessert that is made with cream cheese and whipped cream. Combined with fresh strawberries and graham crackers, it tastes just like a strawberry cheesecake!

Can you freeze strawberry cheesecake fluff?

I don’t recommend freezing this cheesecake fluff as the cream cheese will get a little weird. This recipe is best when fresh or enjoyed straight out of the refrigerator.

How do I store the leftovers?

Store the cheesecake fluff in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I suggest adding the graham crackers right before eating so they do not get soggy.

Tips for Making This Strawberry Fluff Recipe

  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened or the texture will be off.
  • Top the cheesecake fluff with more fresh strawberries for additional flavors.
  • For a low-carb option, leave out the marshmallows and graham crackers.
  • This recipe is best served cold.

    I can dive right into this yumminess of strawberries!! LOL!!
    It’s a good thing that I have a load of strawberries right now.
    I just can’t seem to pass up on a good sale at my grocers.
    I like this quick recipe, luckily for me I have all the ingredients already.
    I agree with chilling it first, I think it’ll have a sharper sweet taste, makes sense?
    Have a nice day Malinda!
