Easy Almost Cheese Cake Dessert

From time to time we want something that sort of tastes like cheese cake but doesn't take so much time.

After some "fiddling around" this is what we've come up with.


1 graham cracker crust (we buy the store brand)
1 package instant pudding (we've mostly done french vanilla, but chocolate or lemon would be good too)
1 8 ounce package low fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups milk, divided (we use 1%)
1 cup whipped cream --- entirely optional, we used some out of a squirt can (Rediwhip)

How to:

Beat together the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the milk until smooth and creamy and free of lumps

Add pudding mix and remaining milk, whip for 2 minutes

Fold in whipped cream if using

Pour into crust

Chill for at least 2 hours
