Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad

This is a recipe I found on the internet right before Memorial Day, and it seemed perfect for that celebration, so Megan and I went into the kitchen and got to work. It’s very easy and quick, and everyone loved it. Megan really wanted to do the work for this recipe, and since it was easy enough for her to basically do alone, with just my supervision and direction, I let her. When I told her she was going to be the “star” of the show for this recipe, she was so excited!  She had a lot of fun and I did too.

So, let’s get cooking!

Peel and cut the bananas into slices about ¼ inch thick.

Remove the leaves from the strawberries and slice into about ¼ inch thick slices.

Set aside while you work on the rest.

Mix together the yogurt and the cheesecake filling. It’s going to be somewhat thick.

Add the Cool Whip and mix well.

              Stir in the strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows.

Now you’re done! Very quick and easy. This is not something you want to make a day ahead, though, due to the bananas browning.

Serve and watch the smiles all around. Enjoy! ~TMMF
