Pistachio Lush is a creamy, rich summer potluck dessert that is a cinch to make. Two boxes of pistachio pudding can easily be turned into a delicious no-bake layer dessert.
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
Cream Cheese Layer
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 (16-ounce) container Cool Whip, divided
- chopped pistachios, optional
In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Press into the bottom of a greased 9x13-inch pan. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until creamy. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
Stir in 1 1/2 cups of Cool Whip. Spread over graham cracker crust.
In a large bowl whisk together pudding mix and milk until it starts thickening, about 2 minutes. Spread over cream cheese layer.
Spread remaining Cool Whip on top. Sprinkle chopped pistachios on top if desired. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
