Greek Yogurt Ambrosia: All the Glamour, None of the Guilt

When I was growing up, ambrosia wasn’t just the food of the gods—it was the queen of classy desserts. To update it from a classic holiday dessert to an everyday treat, I added Greek yogurt which is packed with protein. Serve it in a trifle bowl or in individual cups at your next gathering or even at the breakfast table!
