I faked pistachio pudding. Here it is St. Patrick's Day and I was out of instant Pistachio pudding mix. I didn't realize it until it came down to making the topping for Luck of the Irish Dream Cake 3-97 p.11. I did have instant Vanilla flavor, and this is what I did to compensate for the box:

Along with the vanilla pudding mix I added 2 tablespoons chopped dry roasted pistachios (Trader Joe's sells these shelled and I have a plunger type nut chopper) added 2 drops of green food color and 1/2 teaspoon pure Almond extract.

I got the idea from one of JoAnna's Ice Cream recipes and I don't know if its the green that fooled my taste or what, but it looked and tasted just like Pistacio flavor.

I'm going to keep this idea handy for when I run out of other flavors. I can see using Banana flavoring as well as other flavors I have in my cupboard.
