Hine Nikora-Porou learned this easy ambrosia recipe from her grandmother. ‘She always makes it for Christmas dinner with the family,’ says Hine. ‘I think it’s everyone’s favourite Christmas dessert.’
300ml cream (slightly whipped)
1.5kg yogurt (your preference for flavour)
1 cup fruit (whole, chopped or sliced)
6 Cadbury Flake confectionary bars (or roughly 1 cup of chocolate)
1 cup marshmallows
(I prefer my ambrosia mixture wet. If you prefer a firm ambrosia just halve the yoghurt amount)
• In a large bowl slightly whip the cream until it is a smooth consistency.
• Add in the yoghurt, fruit and marshmallows and fold the ingredients together.
• You can mix the chocolate flakes into your ambrosia or have them as a topping.
• Chill in the fridge for 1 hour or until you are ready to serve.
Tip: I have frozen some ambrosia to make it an ice cream-style dessert.
