Wow, what a lovely treat. It does remind me of Ambrosia, which we adore, (one of the few things mom made well). I loved using the strawberries in this, it tasted just like strawberries and cream. I used a mixture of sour cream and cool whip. (dh likes cool whip I prefer the sour cream, so I mixed the two) It worked really well in the recipe, very flavorful. It was a little clumpy at first then smoothed itself out while resting in the fridge. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. I can't wait to make this for my granddaughter she is a strawberry monster. I know that she will enjoy this as much as we did. Made FYC Tag Game.

I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream. I had multicolor mashmallow so that's why it's full of color. But it's so yummy. Thanks Lazyme :) Made for All you can cook buffet

This a wonderful, simple dessert to make with sweet strawberries. I made this as written for 1/2 of the recipe. This reminds of my Mom's fruit salad (ambrosia) she always served at Thanksgiving and Christmas but with strawberries. Next time that I make this though, I would double the amount of marshmallows, as this was still very runny after sitting for 24 hours, but other than that it is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing a new great fruit recipe. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag Game.
