Let’s talk pistachio. Are you a fan? Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved pistachio pudding. And to this day, I love using it in dessert recipes. From Pistachio Pudding Cookies to Pistachio Lush to this creamy Pistachio Pineapple Dip!
Based on the ever-popular Watergate Salad, this dip is packed with the delicious flavors of pistachio, pineapple, and toasted coconut. It’s delicious with fruit, graham crackers, or cookies… and makes the perfect snack or dessert! Best of all, it’s made with healthy ingredients like Greek yogurt and crushed pineapple.
We love making it for special occasions and holidays… but it’s simple enough to make any day… just because!
what you’ll need for this recipe
Cream cheese – Cream cheese creates the creamy base of this dip. I used 8 ounces of plain cream cheese, softened to room temperature.
Pineapple – I added 1 cup of crushed, canned pineapple along with the juice from the can.
Vanilla yogurt– To add even more creaminess I used 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt. Feel free to use either Greek or regular yogurt. Using Greek yogurt will result in a thicker dip.
Pistachio pudding mix – I used one 3 ounce package of instant pistachio pudding mix to give this dip delicious pistachio flavor.
Toasted coconut – I also added 1/4 cup of toasted coconut for added flavor and texture.
how to make pistachio pineapple dip
Make the base. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, crushed pineapple with juice, yogurt, and pistachio pudding mix. Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.
Add the coconut. Stir in 1/4 c. toasted coconut (use more or less to taste).
Enjoy! Transfer to a serving bowl; top with additional toasted coconut as desired. Serve with fruit, crackers, or cookies.
