I love cheesecakes! My mother-in-law received a cook book one Christmas that was strictly cheesecakes. Every kind you could possibly think of! This is where I got this recipe from. I usually make this more in the summer time, but I thought it would be fun to make now, and think about those warm days up ahead!
2 packages of cream cheese, softened (can use light)
1.3 c. sugar
1 . whole strawberries, pureed
1 ripe banana pureed
1 8 oz. tub cool whip, thawed
1 9 in. graham crust
1-mix cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
2-Gently stir in pureed fruit and whipped topping and spoon into crust
3- Freeze 4 hours or overnight
4-Let stand 1 hour, or until it can be cut. Garnish with fresh fruit
Tip: When I make this dessert I buy lots of different fruits to garnish with. Kiwi, bananas. strawberries, Mandarin oranges, red grapes.... I set them all out in separate bowls and let my guests spoon on their favorite toppings. The kids especially love doing this! Have fun!
