My Neice shared this recipe idea with me and I took it and ran adding a mint leaf and my own measurements.

This recipe is a spin on the traditional Ambrosia.  The Ambrosia dessert is a variation on the traditional fruit salad. Most ambrosia recipes contain fresh or sweetened canned fruit, miniature marshmallows, and coconut.

The truth being this dessert is very fluffy and can get messy.  Basic ingredients you most likely have in your pantry now.  If you want to dress it up grab some mint from the herb garden.  The can cherry kind of bleeds into the fluff.  It might be better to add some raspberries if they are in season.

  1. Bren, will modify due to people in our house can’t eat milk products that aren’t cooked/processed, also trying real whipping cream, will let you know how it turns out. Imagine could use tapocia instead of pudding and may even try that, for a different taste.

  2. This is really good and so easy. Next time I will use fewer marshmallows. I didn’t measure because I was going by memory when making it. Reminds me of a dessert salad I make using similar ingredients but with cottage cheese. I added a little to a bowl to see what it would taste like. It is good, tames the sweetness, but gives it a more lumpy texture.

    • Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience with this recipe with me Sally. I sometimes ‘wing it’ and add the marshmallows to what looks tasty at the time.
