Last week as I was preparing my grocery shopping list, I realized I do have staples that I can use and reduce my weekly shopping budget a little. I had a pie shell to be baked and a package of instant sugar free Jello pudding mix. I remembered this recipe and we had it for lunch on Sunday.
It is easy to make and very tasty.
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 and 1/2 cups milk
1 large 6 3/4 oz regular Jello Instant pudding & pie filling (chocolate) or 2 small package of sugar free instant chocolate Jello pudding & pie filling
1 baked pie shell or graham cracker crust pie shell
Beat cream cheese until very soft. Gradually add 1/2 cup of milk and blend until smooth. Add remaining milk and pie filling mix. Beat at lowest speed of electric mixer until blended – about 1 minutes. Pour at once into prepared shell. Chill at least 3 hours. Garnish with cool whip and chocolate shavings if desired.
This is a great weekend dessert that can be made ahead of time and is enjoyed by everyone.
