You’ll be amazed at how easy this pistachio cream pie is. It won’t heat your kitchen because there’s no baking required!
Great For Summer
Actually, this pistachio cream pie is so good it’s a year-round treat but it’s perfect for summer because it’s a no-bake dessert..
It’s very easy to make too. Just a few convenience ingredients and you’re on your way to this creamy pie!
I’m all about convenience these days because my days of fussing are essentially over which is why I love recipes such as these.
But if you have the time and inclination, you can make your own from scratch for many of the ingredients.
Try It Frozen Too
This pistachio cream pie is great just chilled, but if you want a different experience then try it frozen.
When you freeze the pie, it is very much like ice cream. It’s very nice and cooling, especially on a super-hot day.
It’s best to freeze this overnight if you plan on serving the pie this way. Just remember to use a hot wet knife to cut it for neat slices. You can also let it stand out on the counter for 5-10 minutes before cutting to make the task a bit easier.
Any Flavor Is Good
This is just one of those recipes that can be changed into something entirely different just by changing the flavor.
That’s pretty easy because the main flavor is the pudding mix. Get creative! Fruit flavors will work well–and even better if you fold in some diced fruit pieces of the same flavor.
Chocolate would work too–with a topping of shaved chocolate. And how about raspberry and chocolate? There you’d just use a chocolate crust and have the filling raspberry. The possibilities are endless and each time results in a totally different dessert! That’s a real winning combo.
