Cherry Cheesecake Lush

Share or Save for Later

This recipe….this is the one I have been waiting for! The delicious taste of Cherry cheesecake and the smooth creaminess of lush. I suppose some are wondering what lush is, it is a delicious addition to basically any dessert.

This is that colorful dessert that is perfect for the Holidays, and with the Holidays right around the corner, you know I will be making this quite often.

In specific, Lush is basically a dessert made with a pudding and whipped cream mix, combined with other layers of sweet goodness.

There is a crust layer that is made of graham crackers or cookies that are crumbled or crushed and mixed with melted butter and then pressed in the bottom of the pan.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Is it better to use cookies or graham crackers?

The choice is yours, you are able to use whichever you prefer. I personally prefer graham cracker crust with my cheesecake. But, I have been known to use crushed pretzels too.

            Can I use a Vanilla pudding?

You certainly could, however, if you like cheesecake flavor then you really want to use the cheesecake flavored pudding.

            Can I use a different fruit pie filling?

You could use blueberry, strawberry or cherry, if there is another flavor that you would prefer, let us know how it tastes.
