Apricot Ambrosia

Apricot Ambrosia

First, before you ask, there is NO cottage cheese in this! It’s true, this is a family recipe, probably stemming from the 1950s, but there are no bits of chewy cottage cheese.  Just smooth, silky, melt-in-your-mouth apricot goodness!

I found apricot jello on Amazon and that was great; I did not find baby food that was purely apricot, but there was one that was *mostly* apricot.  I also found canned mango slices, mango jello, and mango baby food, so the next time I make this, it will probably be mango!  Although, a version with mandarin oranges might be good too, kind of a creamsicle-type dessert…I can foresee many versions of this! 🙂  A pumpkin one could be good too! 🙂

A side note: this can be spooned up out of a bowl or cut out of a pan, or even made in a jello mold, should you have such a thing (I don’t).  Just make sure not to leave it out, as it liquefies.  It will solidify again once chilled, but your cute slices will have become a puddle in the meantime.  I did this, and it didn’t ruin the texture, but it was a little sad to see.
