  • 1½ cups reduced-fat milk (2 %)
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip Free (fat-free), thawed

  • 3. Spread the remaining crumbs evenly in the prepared pan. Pat the crumbs down.
  • 4. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place in refrigerator to quickly cool.
  • 5. In the meantime, in a large bowl, add milk, dry pudding mix and almond extract. Beat with a wire whisk for about 2 minutes until thickened. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in 1½ cups Cool Whip. Spoon into cooled pan. Spread evenly.
  • 6. To the pudding bowl add the remaining Cool Whip. Add one drop of each red and blue food coloring and gentle mix with a rubber spatula. This should create a light lavender colored batter. Spread this lavender batter evenly on top of the pistachio pudding batter.
