Alligator Pie – this easy no-bake pie recipe is from the popular kids poem! The kids can make this themselves and it’s a fun way to teach the song!
As a Christmas gift, Jordan’s teacher had the kids make calendars. Each month has a theme. April’s theme is “Alligator Pie,” complete with a song and a recipe.
So I couldn’t resist making our own Alligator Pie recipe with her. It’s so easy she could almost do it herself (even at 6!)
All you need is a box of pudding (any flavor), milk and green food coloring, whipped topping, and a crust. We used a graham cracker crust to make it no bake, but you could also use an Oreo crust or a regular old all butter crust from scratch or a box. Once the pie sets (you can eat it as a cream pie or freeze it for an ice cream pie) you just need to turn it into an alligator!
I want to try this Alligator Pie again using mint extract and an Oreo crust…for a nice yummy MINT pie.
In case you’ve never seen the popular children’s poem…
If I don’t get some…
I think I’m gonna die!
Give away the green grass,
Give away the sky,
But don’t you give away my Alligator pie!
(Song by Dennis Lee)
