Very Berry Kool Aid Cheesecake

Amor Es=Sugar Rush

Hola Amigos...usually I bring you a craft on Thursdays  but today I'm sharing with you this surprisingly delicious and quick dessert which main ingredient is the humble Kool Aid!


For a couple of days now, while trying to organize my pantry, my little 4 yo helper found a few forgotten, maybe on purpose, packets of Kool Aid! I still don't know what possessed me to by them on the first place..is nothing we drink at this household anyways...but I couldn't just trow them away. I did a little online research and found a recipe using Kool Aid. I changed it a little bit and this Cheesecake was born.

Very Berry Kool Aid Cheesecake


1 .14 oz packet of Balck Cherry Kool Aid
1 .14oz packet of Grape Kool Aid
1 8oz container of Cool Whip
1 can Condensed Milk
8 ounces Strawberry Cream Cheese
3 Tablespoon Milk
1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust

Strawberries, Blackberries and Blackberry Preserves for Garnish



 Yes, that is Little Helper Mixing Everything and "Berry" excited to try his new favorite treat! Can you blame him, what is not to like about this one!

Put the Cool Whip, Kool Aid, Condensed Milk, Cream Cheese and Milk in a Bowl, mix with a spatula until you can't see any traces of the Kool Aid. Once everything is mixed, refrigerate for 2 hours until firm. Decorate with strawberry slices, whole blackberries and drizzle some blackberry preserve preciously heated up in the microwave.




Listo!


I've got to tell you guys, this tastes better than I expected. 




I think it's because I cut some of the sweetness of the ingredients with the strawberry cream cheese.
Not only it gave it texture where you can actually sink your fork in, but it also goes well with the blackberry preserves and Graham Cracker Crust!

It's Valentine's, It's O.k to have a little sugar rush to keep the Love Going!


After all everything tastes better with a spoonful of sweetness and a  Pinch of Love!


Also friends, remember the Red Cross needs your help, not only this Valentine's but everyday of the year, not only by donating blood or funds, but also you can volunteer your time assisting staff and donors on blood drives or perhaps encouraging other people to get involved and donate! Whatever it is your call, give the gift of life this February 14th!

Besitos,
Lizy
