12 Days of Christmas 2015, Day 12: [Recipe] Ambrosia

ambrosia

The 12th Frilly Day of Christmas is HERE!

I hadn’t forgotten about the last day of this year’s Christmas countdown, and I even had the post ready to publish, but I thought it might be nice to save this one until you’re able to give it the attention it’s due.

This ambrosia recipe is definitely one of my favourite recipes. It’s the only recipe I requested we have at my baby shower, other than finger sandwiches. It has a wonderful, light, tropical feel. This is my mama’s recipe, and I’m happy to be able to share it.

Every year we have Christmas dinner as a family at my nana’s house with my dad’s siblings and their families. It’s my responsibility to bring dessert for the dinner. This, along with a trifle, is one of the desserts I brought this year. Everyone loved it.
