Kyla's Horchata AmbrosiaKyla’s Horchata Ambrosia

Ambrosia is an American variety of fruit salad. Most ambrosia recipes contain: pineapple, mandarin orange slices, miniature marshmallows, Maraschino cherries, grapes and coconut. For this recipe, I have added crisp green apples, toasted marshmallow syrup and Horchata powder. The result is a cinnamon influenced flavor profile adding depth to an otherwise basic recipe.

• 3 oz. of Dr. Smoothie Cafe Essentials Horchata Powder

Optional Garnish: Stirling Flavors Toasted Coconut Shakable Topping

Directions: Mix together Cool Whip, greek yogurt, 1883 Toasted Marshmallow Syrup and Horchata Powder, set aside. Mix together all other ingredients, stir in sauce mixture, garnish with pecans and Stirling Flavors Toasted Coconut Shakeable Topping. Chill for 1 hour and then serve.

Take a basic waffle mix and brighten it up with some fruity flare!

Yield: 10 waffles (or 20 mini waffles)

Ingredients:
• ½ cup of Dr. Smoothie Boysenberry & Blackberry 100% Crushed Fruit Smoothie
• 2 ¼ cups of All-Purpose Flour
• ¼ cup of Granulated Sugar
• 1 ½ tsp. of Baking Powder
• ½ tsp. of Baking Soda
• ½ tsp. of Salt
• 1 cup of Cold Milk
• ¼ cup of Melted Butter
• 1 tsp. of Vanilla Extract
• 2 eggs

Optional Garnish: Flavored Syrup (Mix equal parts maple syrup and Dr. Smoothie mix and the juice of a lemon.)

Directions: In a large bowl, whisk all your dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Create well in the center. Into the well of the dry ingredients, pour in remaining ingredients: milk, melted butter, vanilla, and eggs. Whisk until incorporated. If the batter seems thick, add in an extra splash of milk, if it is too thin, add a teaspoon of flour at a time.

Preheat your waffle maker. Brush with melted butter and pour in about ½ cup batter into the center. If you are using a mini iron, use about ¼ cup of batter. Close and cook according to waffle maker instructions. Repeat with remaining batter until all waffles have been cooked.

Serve warm with berries, powdered sugar, maple syrup and/or butter.
