Orange Pistachio Pudding





























Ingredients:



* 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)





Method:




* 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 :)
