1 large can crushed pineapple
1 can mandarin oranges
1 can fruit cocktail (I like to use tropical fruit cocktail)

16 ounces sour cream
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup whipping cream, whipped and seasoned to taste with sugar and vanilla


Drain the fruit very well. Mix in the sour cream, coconut and marshmallows. Fold in the whipped cream.

cook's notes

This recipe is not set in stone. The ingredients can be adjusted by substitutions and amounts. I like to use LOTS of mandarin oranges, and sometimes use other fruits. Nuts or other items can be added.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Simply delicious. I used the mandarin oranges in pear juice, fruit cocktail in pear juice and pineapple in its own juice, also used low fat sour cream and low fat cool whip. Good thing I had a taste because it disappeared very fast. This time I will double the recipe.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
made this ambrosia for a July 4th pot luck dinner. Everyone loved it. If you use bananas and apples, like I did, don't forget to place them in a bowl of lemon juice ahead of time so they don't brown. Don't forget to drain away the lemon juice. This recipe is great for a large crowd and looks sooooo pretty if you place maraschino cherries on top.

My mother likes to add bananas, & if your going to be serving later do not add the bananas until your ready to serve, because they will brown & take away from the salad. It is very fast & easy.
