After all the Halloween sweets, I'm sure everyone is ready for something healthy and good. Fruit Ambrosia is always at the top of my list for a great dessert. You can use fresh fruits, like apples, red or green grapes, bananas. strawberries, melon balls, black berries, kiwi or pineapple. But with winter coming on; fresh fruit is not always available. Check your "pantry". Ambrosia can be made out of many of the canned fruits.
1 can (20 oz.) Pineapple Chunks, drained
1 can (11 or 15 oz.) Mandarin Oranges, drained
1 Banana, sliced
1/3 - 1/2 cup of Maraschino cherries
1 1/2 cups seedless grapes
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted. Combine pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, Maraschino cherries, banana, grapes and marshmallows, in medium bowl. Stir yogurt into fruit mixture. Sprinkle with coconut and serve. What could be prettier on a winter evening or for lunch. Blueberries can also be used. Any combination of fruit that you like, will work.
Till next time.....
