Ambrosia Salad


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt , or vanilla
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 11 ounce can mandarin oranges , drained
  • 8 ounce can pineapple tidbits , drained
  • 1 cup maraschino cherries , drained
  • 1 1/2 cups mini fruit-flavored marshmallows
  • Other optional fruit salad add-ins: chopped pecans , sliced bananas, chopped apples


  • Add whipping cream to a large bowl or stand mixer and beat with electric beaters for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in yogurt.
  • Drain canned fruits very well, then add remaining ingredients to a large serving bowl.
  • Fold in whipped cream mixture. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.


Make Ahead Instructions: Ambrosia Salad can be made several hours or up to 1 day ahead of time, but for best results, leave the marshmallows out and stir them in just before serving.
