Pistachio Fluff Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

Pistachio Fluff Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

Every St. Patrick’s Day I get requests for my Pistachio Fluff recipe, so I figured I would post it on a site dedicated to the Irish! It has nothing to do with Ireland, but it does make a nice looking dish on St. Patty’s Day (March 17). It’s perfect for parties because you can eat it as either a salad or a dessert. The recipe does make 10-12 servings, so be prepared to eat a lot of fluff.

Pistachio Fluff Recipe
Serves 10 -12

2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages instant pistachio pudding mix (I use sugar free)
2 (12 ounce) containers Cool Whip (I use fat free)
1 (20 ounce) can crushed Pineapple
2 cups chopped Nuts (I use pecans)
1/2 cup Maraschino cherries
1 (1 lb) bag mini marshmallows

1. Chop the cherries but reserve a few for decoration
2. Mix pudding with cool whip and Pineapple with juice.
3. Add Nuts, chopped cherries and marshmallows.
4. Combine well.
5. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours so marshmallows can soften, but can be served after 2 hours.
6. Garnish with whole cherries on top.

I actually usually leave the nuts out and us them only to layer the fluff (as seen in the picture above), sprinkle them on top, or put them in a bowl on the side for people to use as the like (or don’t like). You can also tint it a little darker with some green food coloring. Throw it on the table with some St. Patrick’s Day party supplies and everyone will think you are the perfect hostess. Better yet, pick up an Irish beer kit and have the most unique St. Patrick’s Day party on the block!
