So this weekend Piper started to refer to my dad by name for the first time. I mean, in the best way she can in her almost two broken English. It came out as

Bop-A

I died. It was just about the cutest thing ever. Which, to her credit, was pretty amazing timing. She is still stuck in the phase of constant screaming. She really needed a win so as to not be sold to the circus.

The Pistachio Cheesecake Dip has a fluffy texture with a lime green color and topped with whipped cream and a single cherry.

The best part was once she figured it out, she just kept saying it over and over and over at maximum volume possible.

Piper: BOP-A! BOP-A! BOP-A! BOP-A! BOP-A!

My dad:  Yes, Piper?

Piper: Hi.

My dad: Hi.

**2.3 seconds of silence**

Piper: BOP-A!!!

Seriously, so awesome.

HOW TO MAKE PISTACHIO CHEESECAKE DIP

So should we talk about this dip? You guys, it is BEYOND easy. And it was one of those where I tasted it to make sure it was delicious. And then I just  . . . kept . . . tasting it. And did I mention easy? This is just pudding, cream cheese, and Cool Whip. Think of the endless possibilities! I went with pistachio, and it is seriously amazing.

RECIPE NOTES FOR PISTACHIO CHEESECAKE DIP

  • You really HAVE to have the cream cheese at room temperature. It will be really hard to mix up if it’s not. I like to leave mine out for about an hour or two cut up.
  • If you must, this recipe works with Lite Cool Whip, but it works a whole lot better with the non-Lite version.

    Congrats on Piper’s big accomplishment! Such a cute conversation.
    And such lovely dip. I could face plant in this right now.

  4. miranda says

    So do you mix the 8 oz cool whip into the dip and then put additional cool whip on top?

    • Lisa Longley says

      All 8 oz goes in the dip, I put a little whipped cream on top for the photos. It would be good without though.

    • Betsy K says

      Make with cool whip. Serve with whip cream.

  5. Willow says

    Do you think this will flop if I use real whipped cream instead of cool whip?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m worried that it would :/ Cool Whip has a stabilizer in it, where as when you whip heavy cream, it doesn’t stay that nice fluffy whipped state out of the fridge. You know?

  6. Judy says

    My philosophy for years has been when making a new recipe it MUST be tasted before serving, preferably the night before. It might be gross, or it might be divine and you’ll need to make more. This pistachio dip falls in this category and fortunately I have all the ingredients for two recipes!!!

  7. Ann Schupp says

    Can you use sugar free cool-whip; my husband is a diabetic.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Ann, I haven’t tried it with sugar free cool whip, but I don’t see why that wouldn’t work!

  8. Mary says

    Would apple slices taste good with the dip

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes, I think that would be delicious!

  9. sheila zanella says

    This would be great on an ice cream cone also.

  10. Angela says

    My boyfriend loves pistachio anything do you think adding pistachios or walnuts would be good for a crunch?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I think that would be delicious!
