Pistachio Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe


1 box instant pistachio pudding

8 ounce cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla

5-1/2 to 6 cups powdered sugar


Whip together the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until creamy. If pipping on frosting sift pudding mix (the mix comes with pieces of pistachios) into the cream cheese mixture. If not then pour the dry pudding mix into the cream cheese mixture. Gradually beat in dry pudding mix and powdered sugar until frosting reaches spread or pipping consistency. Make about 3-1/2 cups.

Pistachio Cream Cheese Frosting — 10 Comments

  1. I’ve been looking for a great frosting recipe all day and found it here! I substituted the vanilla extract for almond and it is absolutely divine… I had to keep myself from taking the excess and eating it with a spoon!

  2. The Pistachio Cream Cheese Icing is an excellent icing. An icing, when topped on a Pistachio Cake, will make your toes twiddle. It’s very delicious! I’ll give this icing 5 stars! Thanks “Lady Behind The Curtain” for sharing…

  3. I make cupcakes in jars. I used this icing on between red velvet cake slices and layered it. Not only did it look amazing, it tastes great!! Thankyou!

  4. If I don’t have powder sugar at the moment what would you recommend I substitute? granulated sugar? with same measurements as powder sugar?

    • Hi Ally, make your own powdered sugar by adding granulated sugar to a blender or food processor and grinding it until it becomes a powder.
