Ambrosia

by Jemma at Time for a Little Something
Hi everyone,
A quick post from me today with another recipe you might like to take to your next neighbourhood barbecue.
This is a Kiwi dessert - a treasured wee secret! It's similar to Eton Mess, but without meringues, and flavoured with berries. It's lovely over summer, and really easy to make. Everyone here loves it! Boysenberries are the traditional fruit, but I had some fresh strawberries on hand, so I added them too. Feel free to use whatever berries you happen to have!

Ambrosia
Serves 4-6

300ml cream
2 tsp icing sugar
1x 250g packet pink & white marshmallows
200g natural yoghurt
1x 400g tin bosenberries, drained



Whip the cream with the icing sugar, until it is soft and fluffy (soft peaks, I guess). Stir in the marshmallows and yoghurt. Carefully fold in the boysenberries so you get a nice swirly colour.


That's it! Refrigerate until ready to serve. It's lovely straight away, or after a couple of hours in the fridge, the marshmallows take on the berry flavour. Enjoy!
