Easy Cheesecake Pudding Dessert With Strawberries

I could eat this treat year round but I really love it in the summer. Fresh strawberries combined with the crunch of the vanilla wafers and creaminess of the cheesecake pudding and cool whip is a refreshing summer dessert.

Other favorite summer desserts are these Banana Split Pudding Cups and Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits.

I like serving this easy cool whip pudding dessert (what my friend calls it) in individual mason glass jars. You can use pint size jars or mini size jars if you have more people to serve.

These self-serve desserts are perfect for parties, fourth of July, Memorial Day or baby showers and bridal showers. Everyone can grab their own dessert jar and enjoy!

Variations and Substitutions

You can also easily make changes to this dessert. That's what I love about it. It's so versatile that you can use ingredients you already have on hand.

  • If you don't have strawberries substitute with other berries such as blueberries or raspberries. You can or also use other fruits such as peaches or pineapples for a tropical version.
  • No cheesecake pudding in your pantry? Try other pudding flavors like vanilla or lemon pudding.
  • If you don't have vanilla wafers you can use graham crackers or a pretzel crust instead.

Need more variations and ideas to change it up? How about Raspberry white chocolate pudding, Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding, or Pineapple Coconut Cream Pudding for a taste of the tropics.
