Think Spring Ambrosia – Soft Dessert Recipe

TMJ Friendly Soft Dessert RecipeWe’re ready for spring! It’s beautiful here in Georgia, and we thought a spring-like jaw friendly recipe was in order. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 5 ounces sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 ounces homemade mini marshmallows (approx. 3 cups) – Never made homemade marshmallows before? It is totally worth it. Here’s the recipe we use (and if the weather turns cold again, they are great for hot chocolate!)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup clementine orange segments (approx. 6 clementines)
  • 1 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1 cup toasted, chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup drained maraschino cherries

Directions
Place the cream and sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and whip until stiff peaks are formed (if you don’t have a stand mixer, a hand mixer will work just fine!). Add the sour cream and whisk to combine. Add the marshmallows, orange, pineapple, coconut, pecans and cherries and stir to combine. Transfer to a glass serving bowl, cover and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.
