How Do You Keep Fruit Salad Fresh?

Add a little lemon or lime juice to your fruit salad to stop fruits from oxidizing, and keep your fruit salad in the refrigerator to keep it from going mushy.

This should keep your salad “fresh” for at least the following day

It’s sweet deliciousness. It seems a little wrong to take all of those healthy berries and turn them into a calorie fest with everything you put in this dish, but guess what, WORTH IT!!

  7. So happy to see this recipe. I think it would be great in sugar cookie cups! Or maybe a parfait with graham crumbles! Thank you!

  8. Is it possible to use real whipped cream as opposed to Cool Whip? Thanks you.

  9. Now THIS is the way to eat fruit!! YES!

  10. Can we use frozen fruit? This sounds amazing!!

    • Hi Michelle, Frozen fruit is tricky because it becomes so soft and so much excess liquid comes out. 🙁 If it’s drained really well or it’s your own fresh frozen fruit it has a better chance of working out.

  11. I just made this with Yoplait 100 calorie Greek whip yogurt in Vanilla Cupcake. It was perfect! Tasted just like eating cheesecake. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

  12. Do the bananas brown quickly, or does the cheesecake mixture keep them yellow? I am making this soon, but don’t want brown bananas in the mix if it takes a few days to eat it. Thanks for sharing!

    • Made this for the 2nd time last night. It was the best ever and pretty much guilt free.
      I used the sugar free fat free pudding powder and sugar free coolwhip. But what really made it good and taste like cheese cake was, I used Yoplait Greek 100 strawberry cheesecake yogurts. It was so good. I also used a peach, raspberries, blueberries, grapes and a banana. Hubby loved it.

  14. You can easily make it taste more like cheese cake by mixing the dry pudding mix with one package cream cheese, then mix in the cool whip. Using plain Greek yogurt instead of strawberry also helps towards that end. Just sweeten it up a bit to taste with your choice of sweetener.

  15. Can you use plain yogurt instead of the strawberry yogurt. You could hardly taste the cheesecake flavor. I am thinking the plain yogurt would probably be better so that you could taste the flavor of the cheesecake

    • I think the pudding is just light on the flavor. You could try adding half a package more and doing plain yogurt. I’ll have to experiment too!

      • I used the Vanilla yogurt and it was better to me. But still not a real strong cheesecake flavor.

      • It would not hurt to add a half of pack more of the cheesecake pudding? I guess I am just looking for a stonger flavor of cheesecake. Love the recipe. I have made it twice in a weeks time. First time w/ strawberry yogurt and the second time w/ vanilla yogurt. Some people liked the strawberry and others liked the vanilla better.

  17. Where do I find Cheesecake pudding? My local stores don’t carry it.

  18. Could you please tell me what you would suggest in place of the yogurt if you don’t care for yogurt? This sounds so yummy and I would love to make it but I am not a huge yogurt fan. Thank you karla.

    • Hi Karla,
      You can’t really tell it’s yogurt, but if you wanted to you could try using double the cool whip and adding a little strawberry cream cheese instead. That would be delicious as well!

      • Thanks so much for the cream cheese idea. I will definitely try that. It sure looks like a good salad…karla

  19. Sandy of WV…stay off the site or delete it for gods sake.

    • Hi friends,
      Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and to talk about the fruit salad. I apologize if the recipe wasn’t or still isn’t clear. I’m so grateful for my readers and the comments and while I know that we all don’t know each other personally I do hope this will be received in the best way. Please, let’s keep things positive and kind. I appreciate you all so much, but I don’t think that being unkind ever brings much to the world other than more negativity. Thanks!

  20. Use your common sense and reread what you think were mistakes. No where does it say packages. Also it says to mix the pudding mix with the yogurt and cool whip which will make the liquid then fold in the fruit carefully.Don’t be so quick to criticize.

      Corrections were made to recipe after I submitted my comments.

      • Hi everyone, please see my above comment. Sandy, thank you for being kind in your response, and I’m sorry these comments are happening. I do hope everyone can be a little more forgiving and kind.

  22. Could I use frozen mixed berries or frozen fruit instead of fresh?

  23. Would you make some corrections to your recipe…

    Read over responses and noticed… some asking about pudding — could you state “dry” in ingredient list/directions.

    Also, it is typed… 1 instant cheesecake pudding packages –believe it should be package without “s” since it is only 1.

    Sorry… about pointing this out. 🙁

    I do love your recipes and the time you put into it but when questions come up about recipes – would you address that in recipe – having to read through the responses is very time-consuming.

  24. Wow really. No you wouldn’t.

  25. Wow…really….yes you would prepare the pudding first

  26. Do I prepare the pudding or do I just use the powder?

  27. Making this right now! Do I actually prepare the cheesecake pudding, or just use the powder?

  29. That looks so good! I am going to have to try that my kids would love it!

  30. I could die too!!! Maybe we could use the light or fat free cool whip to lighten it up a bit! But whats the fun in that???? lol

  31. One word; MMMMMM. Sounds delicious!

  32. Okay I haven't made this before but I have eaten it. It's TO DIE FOR!!!!! So addicting and really, if you swapped some of the ingredients for fat free…it could be completely healthy! oh yeah, baby! YUM-O!

  33. NUM! This sounds delicious! I am definitley going to try this. Thanks.
