This is a different kind of Ambrosia, it's got a little more added to it, but oh so good! This makes enough for a crowd!

I cut this down to two cans of fruit and it made a large bowl. (which my diners said was a good thing. LOL) It is a pale green and very creamy. I used sugar free pudding, fruit in natural juices, and low fat sour cream and it worked successfully. I served this with ham for our Easter dinner. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
