If you’ve never experienced an Ambrosia salad before, than you’ve definitely been missing out! Ambrosia is usually a mixture of canned fruits mixed up in a whipped topping. Sometimes you’ll find nuts and/or shredded coconut in there as well.

I wanted to keep things light and fresh with my recipe, so I used loads of fresh strawberries, pineapple and grapes. I also mixed in those tasty mandarin oranges and a handful of mini marshmallows, because I just love how they add sweetness and a delightfully fluffy texture!

MY OTHER RECIPES

When it comes to the creamy topping that everything is mixed up in, I started out with a cup of Yoplait Greek 100 Protein vanilla yogurt.

The newly updated Yoplait Greek 100 Protein yogurts come packed with 14 to 15 grams of protein per serving and are still 100 calories! Now that’s a snack I can definitely get behind!

Speaking of coconut, I left out the shredded coconut that’s a typical addition to an Ambrosia salad because I wanted to let the fruits shine.

If you’re a die-hard coconut fan you can definitely toss in some sweetened shredded coconut (I’ll leave measurements in the notes section of the recipe below)!

    What can I substitute for pineapple as I am deathly allergic to it. I would already substitute raspberries for strawberries for same problem?
  2. This salad looks wonderful and so appetizing! I’m sure this combination will taste incredible. Today I will buy necessary ingredients and try to cook it. Thanks for sharing!

    You have to make sure to let this set for at least 6 hours, to let the flavours soak into the marshmallows. This is not a make-and-eat salad. I prefer to refrigerate mine overnight before serving.

    Using yogurt can sometimes make it runny, so if you want a more of a sour cream texture. Line a sieve with coffee filter, place in a bowl and let the yogurt drain overnight. This will firm up the yogurt without changing the taste.
