No-Bake Pistachio Pudding Pie with a whipped cream topping, drizzled melted chocolate, chopped pistachios, and an oreo crust. So delicious and easy!
I grew up eating pistachio pudding. I love its green color, pistachio flavor, and the little crunchy bits of pistachio.
This no-bake Pistachio Pudding Pie makes a great holiday pie. It’s green color is perfect for Christmas, Easter or St Patrick’s Day. This pie is also a great summer treat since it is cool and creamy and no oven is needed.
Best thing about this pie? It takes only minutes to make. The fantastically creamy pudding filling is a simple mixture of cream cheese, milk, heavy cream, sugar, and instant pistachio pudding mix.
Tips for making:
- You could put this pie in a graham cracker crust, but I love the way it tastes in a chocolate oreo crust.
- Make sure the cream cheese is very soft or at room temperature before using or it will be hard to get it smooth.
- Two and a half cups of Cool Whip can be used for the topping instead of homemade whipped cream.
- Refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours before serving.
- Can be frozen for up to 2 months.
