Healthy Ambrosia Salad Recipe
This is a healthy and raw version of the ambrosia fruit salad recipe I enjoyed as a kid. Instead of canned fruit, I used fresh fruit, and instead of 'whipped topping', I used a lovely decadent nut cream. Chia seeds give it a fluffy consistency while also adding fiber as well. Hope you enjoy my healthy ambrosia salad recipe for the kid in all of us!

Tips:

  • You will need a high speed blender such as the Vitamix to get a creamy consistency for the dressing. If you don’t have a high speed blender, then I recommend soaking the nuts for at least 4-6 hours in water and soaking the mejidool date until soft before blending.
  • If you don’t have the seeds from one vanilla bean you can use 1/2 teaspoon of a non-alcoholic vanilla extract. If you do have vanilla beans, here is a vanilla bean tutorial on how to extract the seeds from a vanilla bean.
  • I use organic white stevia powder from Trader Joes, or you can also use the Now brand organic white stevia powder as well. I find that 1 or 2 pinches is all I need to add some sweetness without adding extra sugar or calories.
