Apricot Fluff

When we were young mothers, I asked my best friend if she had a recipe for an easy ambrosia salad that I could take to a cookout later that evening. She shared this recipe with me and it's become a must-have at every barbecue I attend. It's sublime with peaches and peach gelatin, too. —Melissa Meinke, Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania

    This is so creamy and delicious. You can use strawberry yogurt and strawberries, pineapple and canned pineapple, or a combination of fruits. You could also make this Vegan by subbing vegan yogurt, but I strongly recommend that you taste the yogurt before using it in the recipe. There’s some really awful nut milk yogurts that taste like chemicals and nothing like fruit. I’d sub silken tofu blended with fruit and fruit juice instead of awful yogurt.

    I made this recipe for a ladies luncheon, and it was a big hit. I did not alter it at all.

    I made this delicious recipe but with changes. No peach or apricot jello to be found so used orange. Also used peach yogurt since no apricot to be found. Did use 5 fresh apricots. This is a winner all around. Both hubby and I loved it and will definitely make it again. Volunteer Field Editor

    I just made this recipe with a few minor changes. I used vanilla lowfat yogurt instead of peach or apricot because that's what I had on hand. I used sugar free peach gelatin, sugar free frozen whipped topping and a 15 ounce can of halved, unpeeled apricot in light syrup (drained) and chopped. The finished "fluff" was tasty, light and not too sweet. A wonderful dessert to make for the hot summer days we have been having. Five stars for sure!

    I've made this recipe several times over the past few weeks. I have used different gelatin and yogurt flavors. It is delicious however you make it.

    Wow! So light and refreshing - LOVED this! Made for my mother's 94th birthday party and she has already requested again, in less than a week. Definitely a keeper!
