If you're looking for something to do today then pull up a chair at the Gods' table because it's National Ambrosia Day!  Hmmm... I wonder if we really are what we eat? ;)  But, let's get right into celebrating National Ambrosia Day!


Well, when you learn of what this food is supposed to be, you almost have to try it out... because, what if, right? It was once thought to be the food of the Gods, and if you ate it you became immortal. So I can see why a lot of people would have jumped onto the ambrosia bandwagon, in ancient Greece, but it must be pretty dang good for people to still make and consume at least some form of ambrosia. Or maybe what refer to as ambrosia today, really is nothing like the ambrosia of old... people just love it enough to want to celebrate it. ;)  Depending on what you read, ambrosia of old was sometimes referred to as a drink or a food, but either way it was for the Gods. It made them immortal and there are all kinds of stories with ambrosia weaved all throughout them, but what is it that we refer to as ambrosia? Well, it's an amazing.... fruit salad. Hold your applause! It's a creamy, fruit mixture that you've probably seen quite a few times.

You can use yogurt, whipped cream or sour cream as your cream, and then the fruit is entirely up to you. But most people seem to add in things like pineapple, Mandarin oranges, bananas, strawberries and maraschino cherries. And they don't stop there; you have to add in stuff like marshmallows, coconut and nuts. With the right blend of ingredients, you really could have something that tastes like food that a God would consume.  It's up to you to find that combination!


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, whip up some of this beautiful magic, of course! If you have a party to go to... ambrosia! If you need a dessert for your dinner... ambrosia! If you like saying the word... ambrosia! So find a good recipe for it, get some supplies and take a stab at making some yourself. I might be wrong, but I really don't think you can get this pre-made, so it's up to you to create this delicious combination.  And feel free to have a little fun with it too! You could use your favorite kind of yogurt, your favorite fruit and sprinkle in some nuts you enjoy. It can be a big messy mixture or made to look nice and pretty. You can make it as healthy as possible or make it the food of gluttons. Heck, go crazy and pop it all in a blender!  But if you really want to have fun with today, then have a party where everyone has to dress up as their favorite Greek God or Goddess. You can do whatever you want at the party, but the only thing served is ambrosia, of course! Make the fruit salad version, a drink version and enjoy the party of all parties. But beware of spiked ambrosia drinks; they might make a few people really think they are immortal!  Have a great day you little ambrosia munchers!
