Our Lighter Ambrosia can still be classified as the "nectar of the Gods," minus the guilt! The sweet, creamy and fruity flavors are practically unbeatable. We've made a classic even better.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, in their own juice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks, in their own juice, drained
  • 2 tablespoons flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 packets Spenda
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine orange sections, pineapple chunks, coconut, and marshmallows.
  2. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, sugar substitute, and coconut extract. Add to orange mixture. Mix gently to combine.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The nutritional info for sugar at 22g sounds way to high for a diabetic. My husband is working to get his blood sugar readings down and I would be fearful to use this recipe??

Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us. We've reworked this recipe so the sugar has been lowered significantly.

Sondralucy, I too, wish they would show serving size on this and other recipes. I have a couple of Diabetic cookbooks where they don't show the serving size either. Frustrating.

Hello! The serving size for this recipe is located at the top right of the page, below the Print/Notes box. We always provide complete nutritional information, including serving size, with all of our recipes. If you do encounter a recipe that doesn't have this information, please feel free to leave a comment on that particular recipe and we'll be sure to fix that right away! Thank you for your comment.

I made this and it was very good. Serving size is approximately 1 cup per sondralucy's inquiry.

Wish you would show serving size and not just servings per recipe . As a diabetic I've been taught to readSERVING SIZE. In relationship to number of carbs. s

Hello Sondra - Thanks for catching that for us! We've updated the recipe so that it includes serving size. Enjoy!
