Ambrosia Dessert is super easy to make and to top it a delicious treat to make and always a crowd-pleaser.
- 1kg Yoghurt – any flavour but I prefer a Berry one
- 500ml of Fresh Cream – whipped
- 1x 200gm packet of Mini Marshmallows or big ones cut up
- 1x punnet of blueberries or other berries of your choice can even be a mix
- 2 Flake chocolate bars or half a cup of grated chocolate (lightly packed)
Place yogurt and cream into a bowl and gently fold together.
Add marshmallows, berries, and ¾ of the grated chocolate and mix carefully.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours.
Sprinkle remainder of grated chocolate on top before serving.
Can add extra berries on top, can serve individually, can also add chopped up chocolate instead of grated.
Firm summer dessert favorite in our house.
Great to make on Christmas morning, and have for dessert that night.

I know my mouth could handle that! Since having had oral cancer I need to be aware of what I can and cannot eat. This would be ideal. Thanks so much!
I have returned to linking up after a long absence.
Thanks so much.
I hope this will be good and that you can enjoy it and as you say that your mouth will be able to handle it. I pray and trust that all well with you and that your oral cancer is under control.
I’ve never heard of this dessert as I am Australian. Looks delicious
