St. Patrick’s Day Recipe | St. Patrick’s Pistachio Pudding

Pistachio Pudding

We are gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day here at Crazy About My Baybah! Yesterday I shared with you one of my husband’s family favorite recipes for Green Dream Jello Salad, and today I am excited to share with you a favorite from my family, St. Patrick’s Pistachio Pudding.  Whenever my mom made this for us when I was little, you always knew it was time for spring.  It is light, refreshing, and with the pineapple in it, has the right amount of sweetness.  Plus, it is super easy to make.  Baybah cannot get enough of it!

Pistachio Pudding Recipe

To make the pudding extra festive I purchased little Saint Patrick Day hats from Walgreens.  I took off the elastic strapped, washed them real good, and then used them as little cups.

Here is my favorite Pistachio Pudding Recipe.  Enjoy!

  1. mmm…it’s been so long since I’ve had pistachio pudding, my mom used to make it all the time! St. Patrick’s day is the one day I can convince my family to eat spinach, LOL.

  2. Oh. My. Goodness.

    That sounds similar to the stuff that I get from the deli counter at the grocery store that I love so much! I will be pinning this for sure.

  3. I absolutely love these, what a unique way to put it all together. I’d have never thought of using little hats like this. I just created a St Patrick’s Day board just to put great recipes and inspiration like this on it 🙂 Thank you for linking up to our Lovely Ladies link party, I’ve included your pistachio pudding in a fabulous round-up on my blog if you’d like to check it out
    Happy St Patrick’s Day!
