I love Lemon Lush and when I heard about Pumpkin Lush I immediately thought this would be a winner.  And, boy, was I right!  It’s light and creamy and goes down really easy — especially after you just gorged yourself on turkey, stuffing and all of the fixings!

This recipe is super easy to make too.  It’s my kind of dessert recipe.

My friend Angelina gave me this recipe.  She’s the same person that gave me the recipe for No Bake Butterfinger Pie and Bacon Glazed Carrots.  Those are two of my most popular recipes on IAK.  So you know, this one’s sure to be a hit too!
