Enter the pistachio.  One of my one and only true loves.

Now, I know some of y’all may not think that pistachio pudding is the sexiest dish on the planet. But, dude, really?  Pistachio!!!!!

I’m also continuing with my theme of my St. Patrick’s Day birthday other theme of ungreen green things. And here we are.

Like Annie pointed out in her comment on this post – pistachio pudding should not be green.

I couldn’t agree more.  And the same goes for mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I’m just sayin’

Okay, okay, I admit that there is some tiny bit of green tint going on here in this pudding.  Well, yeah! There are pistachios in there!  But seriously, your pudding should not be something that looks like it came right out of Ghostbusters.

A tint of green if you smash or chop your pistachios is totally legit!

Either way, if you’re using this recipe you’ll be making a paste which is going to make your pudding DELICIOUS!

Sorry.  Totally not trying to yell.  Pistachios just get me all kinds of excited.  And don’t even get me started on pudding.

I’m a huge lover of the stuff and have shared a few of my faves here and here.

This pistachio pudding is delicious on its own, but I’ve also used it several times in other ice cream and cheesecake recipes.  Check back next week to see what St. Patrick’s Day and birthday excitement we have going on!

Ingredients

    For the Pistachio Paste
  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
    For the Pistachio Pudding
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup pistachio nuts roughly chopped, optional for garnish
  • whipped cream, optional for garnish

Instructions

    For the Pistachio Paste
  1. Add pistachio nuts to a food processor and pulse until small pieces, but not powder
  2. Add sugar and pulse until combined
  3. Add water and pulse until it becomes a paste
    For the Pistachio Pudding
  1. Whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl - this will be thick and somewhat difficult to whisk - it's ok!
  2. Transfer pistachio paste into a medium saucepan, add milk, and heat on medium until warm and steamy, but not boiling, whisking constantly
  3. Transfer 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture to the whisked egg mixture, while whisking constantly
  4. Do this again with another 1/2 cup of milk mixture
  5. Return this egg and milk mixture back to the saucepan, heat on medium (not boiling) and whisk constantly until thick - about 1 minute
  6. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla bean paste and butter, stirring until incorporated and butter is melted
  7. Transfer the pudding to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and make sure it covers the pudding to prevent that weird skin situation - because nobody wants that!
  8. Refrigerate overnight

  1. Oh my gawd!!! This puddin’ looks so fantastic and I could eat a huge vat of it for breakfast right now! Hubby’s favorite nut in the whole world (besides me) are pistachios. I actually have a big bag of shelled ones I just bought at Trader Joe’s so I will making this over the weekend. Funk yeah!!! 😉

  2. Oh mannn! This has my name written all over it! And I’m with you – pistachios are a supremely special nut! Do you remember, way back in the day, when they would die the shells with red food coloring then your hands would be stained for days? I loved them then and I love them now! I must make this pudding…my hubby will likely be the happiest man on the planet when I do! Thanks for sharing a link back to CCB, my friend! Have a lovely pre-birthday weekend!!

    • OMG! Yes! I totally remember. And I was cracking up at your comment from the other day because I knew this was coming next! 🙂

  3. You’re definitely singing my song here. When I get around a bowl of pistachios they disappear fast. I’ve never had pistachio pudding before, but I think it’s time to introduce myself to it!

  4. OMG, you are a creepy mind reader. Or you snuck into my house and installed nanny cams, because Boy and I totally ate an entire bag of pistachios last night as a snack. Totally wishing it was this pudding though! This looks and sounds seriously delish, Rachelle! I am going to have to hop in my ride and pick up another few bags of pistachios because I need this puddin’ in my life. Pronto! Pinned!
    P.S. Keep bringing on the kinda green St. Patty’s day recipes because I am loving them all! And I love that none of them are freakishly green. xo

  5. Hhhah your posts are always so fun!! I love the train of pistachio, green and st patrick’s going on 🙂 This pudding looks great!!
