Pineapple Ambrosia

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kookaburra

This easy, 'do ahead' recipe is great for a dinner party served in pretty glasses. It also makes a perfect filling for a pavlova. It's been a family favourite of ours for over 30 years! Don't rush it though - it must be made a day ahead for the flavours to incorporate properly.

What a lovely desert, so differant and loved the taste. I used fresh pinapple and followed your recommendation and served over a pavlova that I had made pink in honor of Valentines day. Also added 1/4 cup of sweetened coconut at DGS's request. It was lovely and tasted wonderful - something special for a special day.
