Orange Pistachio Pudding


* 4 small packages of Orange Jello

* 2 cups of water

* 1 can condensed milk

* 4 cups of fresh orange juice or 2 (6 oz) cans of frozen orange juice concentrate thawed

* 4 (11 0z) cans of mandarin orange pieces drained

* 2 cans of evaporated milk or 3 cups of milk

* 1 tub of Cool whip or non dairy topping

* 1 cup of pistachio (unsalted, shelled)

* 1 pack of instant pistachio pudding for serving (optional)


* Roast pistachio in a frying pan on stove on medium heat, when light brown turn the stove off and set aside.

* Boil 2 cups of water.

* Dissolve jello in it.

* Let it cool.

* When cold add rest of the ingredients. (keep some mandarins and pistachios for garnish, you can grind some pistachio for garnish)

* Mix well until every thing is well incorporated.

* Pour in serving container.

* Chill in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours to set.

* Serve it garnished with mandarin pieces and pistachio pieces or ground pistachios.

* I served it straight and also with Pistachio instant pudding following the instructions on box and serve it alternating layer of orange and pistachio pudding as shown in pictures.

* However this is optional, if you don't like pistachio pudding you can omit this step.

* This is very versatile recipe. You can add walnuts or pecans or almonds instead of pistachios this if desired.

* You can make this with any fruits like pineapple, berries using any fruit flavor Jello.

Enjoy :)
