This recipe was AWESOME! The flavors and textures worked well. What I did was drained the pineapple juice from the fruit and only used 1 cup of the juice. I blended the pudding with the juice until thick ( almost right away) and then added just a wee bit more juice to the pudding and blended until thick but smooth.
I also added 2 cups mini marshmallows to the pudding. Then adding the pineapple into the pudding I folded in the whipped topping. I will make this all year round!
I learned how to make this when I had my first Christmas with my husband's family and my mother in law made it for me. It's still one of my favorites. When I make it, I will usually throw in a whole small bag of marshmallows.
