Ambrosia salad


  • 1 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 x 440g tin pineapple pieces, drained
  • 1 x 310g tin mandarin segments, drained
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond flakes (reserve some to top salad)


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and chill before serving.

Top with almond flakes.


  • If the marshmallows in this recipe are just one step too far for you, leave them out.
  • You may substitute the sour cream with Greek yoghurt in this recipe.
  • Toasting the almond flakes for 5 minutes in the oven will give this salad extra crunch.
