My mother makes 2 cool whip type desserts for picnics and parties.
This is the Green one. :giggle2:
SO EASY!

1 can crushed pineapple (do NOT drain)
1 box pistachio pudding (dry, do not prepare)
1 or 2 handfuls of mini marshmallows
1 container of cool whip

Mix pineapple and dry pudding.
Stir in the marshmallows and cool whip until well blended.
Refrigerate at least 8 hours. (Can be made the day before. Seems to get better the longer it's in the fridge.)
Will be shocking green in color! :biggrin:

Mmmmm I love this stuff!!!

Me too! Growing up this was at every family food function! My mom used to put pecans in it - why mom, why? Ruined the creamy goodness! My grocery store sells it on their salad bar - now I need a scoop! :wink7:

My SIL used to make this and bring it to every family function. They moved away, the family drifted apart, and I figured out how to make it myself! LOL!! I love it!! Although...she always made it with pecans too, and so do I. We like it that way, but it's nice to know that it can be made without...for those times when I don't have (and can't afford!) pecans.
