What is Cheesecake Fluff?


Cheesecake fluff is a no-bake dessert comprised of cream cheese, whipped cream, sugar, and flavorings. In addition, this recipe has mini marshmallows which bring the texture and flavor of the dessert to new heights.


Cheesecake fluff has all the goodness of cheesecake filling, without all of the extra work and time. Not to mention, it can be eaten by the spoonful, which is a major plus.


Ingredients

  • Heavy Whipping Cream - The cream needs to be cold for whipping.
  • Confectioners' Sugar - Sifted.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Cream Cheese - Softened at room temperature.
  • Strawberry Preserves - Store-bought or homemade.
  • Fresh Strawberries - Cut into small bite-sized pieces. Reserve extra whole strawberries for garnish.
  • Mini Marshmallows


To Make This Recipe Keto


You can make this recipe keto. Here's what you will need to do:


  1. Substitute powdered erythritol for the confectioners' sugar.
  2. Use store-bought or homemade sugar-free (keto-friendly) strawberry jam.
  3. Omit the marshmallows or use keto marshmallows.

Instructions


The most difficult part of this recipe is waiting for it to chill and set. With exception to the two-hour chill time, the remainder of the process takes about 15 minutes.

  1. Whip the Cream: In the bowl of a standing mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks. Next, add the sifted confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract. Whip until stiff peaks have formed. Transfer whipped cream to a separate bowl.
  2. Whip the Cream Cheese & Preserves: In the same mixing bowl with the same whisk attachment (no need to rinse) whip the cream cheese and strawberry preserves until light and fluffy.
  3. Fold the Cream into the Cream Cheese Mixture: With a spatula, carefully fold ¾ of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. (The remaining ¼ of the whipped cream will be used for garnish.)
  4. Stir in the Marshmallows & Strawberries: Gently fold the marshmallows and strawberry pieces into the cream mixture.
  5. Chill & Serve: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the fluff in the fridge for 2 hours. Serve with the remaining whipped cream and additional fresh strawberries.


Frequently Asked Questions


How far can this cheesecake fluff be made in advance? For best results, serve this Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff the same day it's made. The fresh strawberries inside will start to weep and the marshmallows will begin to slightly dissolve as it sits. For this reason, at most, this fluff can be made one day in advance.

How do you store cheesecake fluff? You can place the fluff into individual servings covered in plastic wrap or store it all together in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How long does cheesecake fluff last? Cheesecake fluff will last up to 3 days. It will start to lose its shape and texture after the third day.

What are the best ways to serve strawberry cheesecake fluff? These are beautifully served in individual wine glasses (as pictured) or mason jars. Garnish with a dollop of cream and a fresh strawberry. Additionally, the fluff can also be served in a large bowl with a spoon for self-service.

Recipe Tips & Substitutions


  1. For the best whipping results, place your stainless mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the fridge or freezer. Likewise, make sure that your heavy whipping cream is cold.
  2. The cream cheese should be at room temperature to avoid any lumps of cheese in the final product. Therefore, you should pull the cream cheese out of the fridge an hour before making this dessert.
  3. Cool Whip can be a substitute for homemade Chantilly cream. I have not, however, tried using it within this recipe myself. So, you may need to make some adjustments if using.
  4. Graham cracker crumbs make a delightful addition to this recipe. In particular, they mimic the idea of a graham cracker crust. To use, sprinkle crumbs on the bottom of the serving dish and sprinkle additional crumbs as a garnish.
  5. If you love chocolate, add miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips to this Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff recipe. Fold in ½ cup of mini chips alongside the marshmallows and strawberries. Similarly, you can garnish the portions with chocolate-covered strawberries.


Strawberry cheesecake fluff is perfect for both dinner parties and for the everyday. This recipe is incredibly simple, uses only seven ingredients, and can be made in advance. You'll love my Lime Cheesecake Fluff too!
