Pistachio Lush

This is quite possibly my all time favorite dessert. It is heaven by the spoonful. We make this using pistachio because it is our favorite but you can use just about any flavor of pudding that you would like. Chocolate, banana, and lemon are some of our favorite flavors. You can cut calories and sugar by using low fat cream cheese and sugar free pudding. You can also try it with different nuts, the possibilities are endless. However way you try it brace yourself for a creamy dreamy treat.
