"Pits"tachio Pudding Pie


Yes, that is what I did when I realized I needed a dessert last night for company.  I wanted something green.  This is what I pulled from my cupboard.  I think we can all appreciate a semi-homemade convenient dessert in times like these, can't we?

When I decided to make this I had to name it.  Well when I was at my  parents over the weekend, we were going through old photos and boxes of "stuff".  (I have a craftier word for it).  We found this little project my sister Patty did in probably 3rd or 4th grade.  She was to write about her nickname, an embarrassing moment, a trip, getting lost, etc.  We laughed so hard at the things she wrote, and it reminded me that as a kid one of our uncles always called her "Pits".  Since her birthday is on St Patrick's Day and her nickname was "pits", what...that sounds horrible now.  Who wants to be called PITS?  I am sorry Patty, I am sorry you had to endure a childhood of being called after one of the smelliest parts of the human body.  We never thought of it like that then, but as an adult, my sincerest condolences!!  Here is the birthday girl herself with our mom.

So as I mentioned this is one of those throw together pudding pies, I just happen to like this one I made, ALOT.

1- 9 inch graham cracker crust  (feel free to make your own)
2- 3.4 boxes of Pistachio pudding
1- 7oz. container of Marshmallow Fluff
1 1/4 cups cold milk

Combine pudding, marshmallow fluff, and milk in a blender.  I find a blender way easier when it come to sticky marshmallow fluff.  Blend until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Pour into your prepared graham cracker crust and refrigerate at least 2-3 hours. 

Top with cool whip or fresh sweetened heavy cream!  (1 cup heavy cream, 2 tbsps. powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract)

ENJOY and Happy St. Patrick's Day my friends!  Bottoms UP!


  1. This looks lovely. I pinned it to our St. Patrick's Day Recipe Round up on Kitchen

  2. I bet if you used chocolate pudding, it would taste like one of those chocolate covered marshmallow cookies. A touch of mint extract in with the chocolate and marshmallow, and it would be an interesting twist on the Girl Scout Thin Mints.
