Most of the ingredients you can buy ahead and keep in your store cupboard so it's very convenient indeed.
The flavors and textures of this Pistachio Fluff are wonderful! You get a nice bite from the pineapple and crunch from the pistachio nuts, then a gooey chewy texture from the marshmallows together with a delicious flavor of coconut and all the other goodies in this.
It's a great crowd pleaser and so easy to make. Really refreshing flavors and a wonderful pretty color too!
