Summer Recipe Roundup
Thanks to Barrie Summy, we’ll have a summer’s worth of yummy foods. With everyone posting recipes, not one of us will be left wondering what to bring to the next gathering. So… here’s my recipe contribution…
Ambrosia ~ The Fruit of the Gods
1 – quart low fat or fat free plain yoguart
1/2 package of miniature marshmallows
1 1/4 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1 thinly sliced banana
1 – 15 oz. can sliced peaches – cut into smaller pieces – drained
1 – 20 oz. can cubed pineapple – drained
1 – 15 oz. can fruit cocktail with light or no syrup – drained
1 dozen or so marachino cherries halved and set on paper towels to drain completely
To be certain all or most juice is out of canned fruit, set in colander and lightly press. Leave to drain for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine plain yogurt, marshmallows and coconut.
When canned fruit has thoroughly drained, blend into yogurt mixture. Gently fold in banana slices. Spread Ambrosia into a 10x10x3″ pan and garnish with halfed and drained marachino cherries. Refridgerate at least one hour before serving to give all flavors a chance to blend.
Keeps in fridge 3 -4 days.
