Delicious ambrosia! I left out the almonds and added maraschino cherries. I also only used an 8 oz tub of cool whip, I think 16 oz would have been too much. Will definitely use this recipe again!

I was looking for an ambrosia recipe without the sour cream and this was so YUMMY! I only used 8 oz of cool whip as I bought the wrong size and it was perfect. I also used extra oranges and pineapples instead of fruit salad... GREAT recipe!

Just divine, the marshmallows eventually get soft and just melt in to the dessert! YUMMY!

I haven't tried this yet, but I'm a good enough cook to know this will be wonderful! I've been looking for an Ambrosia recipe that doesn't have sour cream as I have a family member who doesn't like sour cream and sour cream doesn't like her. :-) Happy Easter! Jesus is Risen!

This was really tasty and easy to prepare. I added kiwi and regular oranges instead of canned mandarin oranges. I left out the almonds and added a few ( okay quite a few) extra marshmallows.

This is better than my grandmother's recipe! Made this for Christmas and couldn't believe how good it was.

I'm so glad I tried this recipe ~ it really brought back memories of long ago holidays. This recipe is super easy to make. I did not add the almonds or coconut ~ just personal preference. I also added some maraschino cherries just because I like them. It makes more than 4-6 servings so it would be perfect for a potluck or holiday gathering. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008.

Awesome! Super easy. I didn't put in the coconut (yuk), or the almonds (allergies). Still very good.

This was an exceptionally easy recipe to make! I omitted the slivered almond (as my DH can't eat them) and used 1 1/2 oz packet of vanilla pudding - I used what I had on hand. Also, I only sprinkled coconut on top of the dish as my family isn't a huge coconut fan. I used sugar-free whipped cream, no sugar added canned fruits. Delicious. Great recipe I will use over and over!
