Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

We left out the marshmallows (because we did not have any) and it was still very good indeed! And it is so quick and easy to make that our 2 youngest children (boy and girl, 8 and 10 years old) made it for us. An aside I look forward to the day when they do all the cooking, lol! Anyway everyone enjoyed it and they want it again.

I love fruit in desserts. This recipe seem so simple and straightforward. I also have never seen cheese cake flavored pudding but I agree that you can use any kind of alternative I am sure. Personally I like butterscotch so I would try that one. I like the marshmallows in this recipe.I would imagine this makes quite a lot which is great for a take along to some event. I'm absolutely going to make this recipe.

I always try to think of something different to bring to summer potlucks and barbecues, and old-fashioned favourite would be perfect! I also have never seen cheesecake flavoured pudding, but i bet vanilla or even pistachio would be just as good. This dessert is so pretty and could be served in individual glasses/bowls or in a larger pretty trifle bowl. I'm definitely making this recipe soon!

I love fruit salads, especially Ambrosia salad. I don't think I've ever seen Sugar Free Cheesecake flavor Jello pudding in my local grocery stores. I hope it's not one of those flavors that has been discontinued. It doesn't have to be Sugar-Free, anyway. Maybe vanilla pudding would be just as good.

There is something about a classic recipe... I can't get enough of this "salad" and I bring it to every function, no matter what time of year. everyone loves it.
