I make this recipe many times during the summer. I use the mandarin oranges in juice though not the syrup kind. Everyone always really enjoys this.

I used this same recipe for years and recently misplaced my card. I'm so happy to have found it again! Whenever I hold my luau every summer we make this dessert and there is NEVER any left at the end of the party!

Coconut Ambrosia is a wonderful addition to the meal no matter what the holiday is. It's a nice cold taste after hot mashed potatoes and gravey.
