    This strawberry cheesecake fluff recipe is pretty straightforward and minimal! You need strawberries, sugar, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, and butter.
    STRAWBERRIES: You will need diced strawberries for this recipe. I used fresh strawberries, but you could even use strawberries that have been thawed.
    SUGAR: Both powdered and granulated sugar is needed for this strawberry fluff. 
    CREAM CHEESE: Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature!
    HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM: Cold cream whips up the best.
    VANILLA
    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

    FAQs

    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

    • 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.
