It's so easy to make. We thought my grandma slaved to make this for us growing up. Little did we know... :-)

Yum! Wonder if I could slim down the calories by using Neufechel cheese and low-fat grahams?

This is also a great basic recipe. Bet you could use vanilla, chocolate, pumpkin spice, etc., instant pudding flavors and just omit the lemon juice. Maybe add a little extract. Going to make this asap.

This one also fresh lime fresh lemon I'm sorry is it made with jello pudding only or can you use a different kind of lemon pudding as everything as a brands or can you make it from scratch and thank you for replying to my comments I appreciate it

This is my grandma's recipe, and she always used a box of instant lemon pudding mix. So not sure anything else would work in this recipe. Rosseyes
