Winter Fruit Salad

Creamy berry salad

I call this my winter fruit salad because it is made from ingredients you can buy year round.  Because of the miracle of interstate shipping and trading we can get frozen berries and fruit year round.  This is a simple and fast recipe you can mix up in a few minutes and maybe bring a little of that summer feeling into your winter days!  Thanks to my daughter in law Brittany who gave me this recipe.

Winter Fruit Salad

2 boxes of Instant cheesecake (or 1 cheesecake and 1 white chocolate) Pudding Mix
1 - 8 oz. thawed whipped topping
1 quart (32 oz) Vanilla Yogurt
2 lbs frozen berry mix (I used Walmart's Triple Berry Mix and added frozen
blackberries too)

In a large bowl combine the whipped topping, vanilla yogurt, and powdered pudding with a whisk.

Keep stirring, (whisking is that a word?)  until the pudding is dissolved and smooth. 
I usually take my frozen berries and thaw them about 1/2 way in the microwave, stirring them carefully through the process so they are uniformly thawed.  I stop when they are still a little frozen so they don't turn to mush when they are stirred into the salad.  Gently fold the berries in to the cream mixture until they are evenly spread out.
  You can eat it immediately but I like to put it in the fridge for at least a few minutes to set up.  This is sooo creamy and good!
