Reviews for Ambrosia Pudding
"A little sweet. It may have been better with more bananas and leaving the oranges out all together. Not really sure, but I didn't enjoy it enough to make again."
"Left out the Almonds. This was very good."
"I made half a recipe and ate it all myself. When I make a full recipe for friends I will be sure to drain the oranges well and to make the dessert the same day I plan to serve it."
"great taste and wonderful cool and refreshing dessert that is not heavy. We all love it. will make this one of our favorites."
"Omitted almonds. Yummy!"
