Millionaire Cheesecake Salad is a delicious fruit salad recipe that everyone will love! It’s loaded with fruit and a creamy cheesecake filling to create the most glorious fruit salad ever (or fruit dessert).
Have you ever had Millionaire Salad? It’s a lot like Watergate salad or ambrosia salad, sweet fruit, crunchy nuts, and soft marshmallows, tossed in a fluffy whipped topping.
Millionaire salad is made with cherries, pineapple, marshmallows, coconut, and pecan, It’s light, sweet, and totally delicious, so delicious that I decided to combine it with one of my favorite desserts, cheesecake salad, to create Millionaire Cheesecake Salad, and OMG, it is amazing!

40 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained
20 ounces maraschino cherries, cut in half
10 ounces mini marshmallows
3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
12 ounces chopped pecans
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (3.4-ounce) package instant cheesecake flavored pudding, unprepared
1 cup French vanilla creamer (liquid)
Step1: In a medium tall bowl, using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is and it will loosen up. Add dry pudding mix. Beat until well combined.
Step2: With mixer running slowly add creamer to the cream cheese mix. Add it about a tablespoon at a time and then mix until it becomes a smooth mixture and all of the creamer has combined into the cream cheese. Continue until all of the creamer has been added to the cream cheese. Whip until smooth.
Step3: In a large bowl, combine pineapple chunks, maraschino cherries, mini marshmallows, sweetened flaked coconut, and chopped pecans.
Step4: Pour cheesecake mixture over fruit. Gently fold cheesecake mixture into fruit.
Step5: Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.
