Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt 8 ounces
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries 3 cups hulled and quartered, divided

  • 1 cup mini-marshmallows optional

Pineapple Boat (Optional for Serving)

  • 1 large pineapple

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, sugar and yogurt. Beat until smooth using a hand mixer or wooden spoon.
  • Add the banana slices, 2 cups of strawberries (reserve about a dozen strawberry pieces for decoration) and optional mini-marshmallows. Mix until coated thoroughly.
  • Keep refrigerated until serving. Garnish with remaining strawberries on top and served chilled.

Pineapple Boat Serving (Optional)

  • Cut the pineapple in half. Using a sharp paring knife or serrated knife, cut out the flesh in chunks until mostly hollowed out. Save the flesh for snacks or other use.

Notes

  • Lighter variations: You can use light cream cheese and non-fat yogurt. You can also reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup and substitute unsweetened plain yogurt if desired.
  • Make ahead: This cheesecake salad is best served the same day it was prepared. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving.
