This Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff is the ultimate, easy summertime dessert. It is perfect for potlucks and summertime BBQ’s and can be thrown together quickly with pudding, cool whip, sour cream, fresh strawberries and a graham cracker crumb topping.
I used to love picking the marshmallows out of the ambrosia salad my mom always used to make for potlucks. This dish is inspired by that, but with the yummy cheesecake flavor I just can’t get enough of.
It was definitely a hit with my whole family [my daughter got upset anytime someone tried to eat some of it]. We were about to have a total Gollum from “Lord of the Rings” type of situation.
A ring of fresh strawberries makes this dish look fancier and adds a beautiful pop of color. A sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs enhances the cheesecake flavor experience. No need to heat up the house with that oven as the days become warmer [I think is going to be warmish today].
Maybe, spring is finally starting to sprout around these parts. In any case, I refuse to wait for warmer weather to indulge in plenty of frozen cocktails and no-bake desserts.
If you enjoyed this Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff, I highly recommend also adding an Easy Fruit Pizza or Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Lasagna. They are both fruity, easy to make and require no baking!

Made this pie for the 4th of July.!Delicious! And so easy. I did omit the marshmallows as to me it was plenty sweet
Thanks Bonnie…I’m so glad you liked it!
Dumb question…do you need prepare the pudding mix before mixing it with the whipped cream?
Not dumb at all. No, you just stir the pudding mix directly into the whipped cream.
