Tips for Best Results

  • Use fresh, ripe fruit for the best flavor. If you use canned fruit be sure to thoroughly drain it to avoid watering down the pudding mixture.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is fully softened before mixing to avoid lumps.
  • Chill the salad for at least 30 minutes before serving for the best texture.
  • Gently fold the fruit into the cheesecake mixture to keep it from getting mushy.

Variations

  • add shredded coconut flakes for extra tropical flair
  • mix in some chopped nuts like macadamias for a crunchy texture
  • swap out the fruits for your favorites, like papaya, grapes, maraschino cherries, blueberries, or guava
  • add a splash of lime juice for a zesty kick
  • add mini marshmallows

Serving suggestions

This delicious cheesecake fruit salad pairs wonderfully with grilled meats, especially chicken or pork. It’s also a great match for other tropical-themed dishes like coconut shrimp or a fresh green salad with a zesty citrus dressing. The combination brings a refreshing and vibrant touch to any meal!

For a full island experience, serve it alongside a tropical pineapple rum punch or a fruity cocktail.

Storage
