Something Sweet by Cindy Flores Martinez

Over the holidays, I made the easiest dessert for family gatherings. It was such a hit that I thought I’d share the recipe with you. I had wanted to make something that was simple, and a quick search online led to this no-bake pie.

The first pie that I made was banana flavored. The second one was lemon. Everyone in my family liked the lemon the best. I plan to try other flavors in the future.

No Bake Pudding Pie


1 small box (3.5 ounces) instant vanilla pudding
1 small box (3.5 ounces) instant pudding, a flavor of your choice (banana, or lemon, or lime, or chocolate, etc.)
2 ½ cups milk
½ cup whipped topping
1 graham cracker crust


Pour the pudding mixtures into a bowl, add the milk, and stir until thick.

Blend in the whipped topping.

Pour into the crust.

Refrigerate. Garnish with whipped topping.

It’s that simple!

If you’re in the mood for a sweet Christmas read, my story, Love’s Christmas Wish, is FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

In the story, Hope has left her childhood home in Sweet Grove, Texas to chase after her dream of becoming an actress in Hollywood. Years later, things haven’t turned out the way she wanted. Needing to escape for a while, she returns home to visit her parents during Christmas.

While at the coffee shop, she meets Justin, who she knew in high school. His life isn’t everything he hoped it would be either. They end up working together as the town Santa and Mrs. Claus.

That Sunday at the First Street Church, they’re reunited with an old friend, Mercedes De Jesus, who is also struggling in life after the sudden death of her husband. Her daughter, Joy, is dealing with the loss of her father. They all seek a second chance in life.
