Pistachio Pudding Pie Recipe

Pistachio Pudding Pie Recipe

My mom started making these recipe years ago and it quickly became a family favorite. It is so simple to make and doesn’t require any cooking. I always keep the ingredients on hand so I always have an easy no bake dessert to make if needed .I even make it with different flavors of pudding. My favorite is always pistachio because it brings back memories of times I spent with my Grandmother. Every Christmas she would always buy a few pounds of pistachios and we would spend time together and eating pistachios was always a treat. It is also in a fun light green color that makes it a great St. Patrick’s Day treat.

Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (13). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.

    i love pistachio pudding and usually only make it twice a year at thanksgiving and christmas to make ‘grasshopper salad’. this recipe gives me an excuse to make it more often. 🙂

  8. Crystal Warren says

    This reminds me of a dish my grandma used to make. I tried making pistachio pudding for kids but they wouldn’t go for it…I know if I made this my husband and I would eat it in one night..

    We make ours with graham crackers. We layer the pudding & crackers, much like a lasagna. I’ve never done it with pistachio though. I’ll have to try it for a St Paddy’s treat. These “refrigerator pies” also brings back many pleasant memories of my mom and me making them. Very easy for a child to do.

    I love that this dessert is colorful and simple to make. Recently I made a pudding cake using color changing pudding from jello which was also green. The result was a green cake perfect for St. Patrick’s day.
