    Jellyqueen's Note:

    I love ambrosia of all kinds. This one I got out of a magazine. I love the toasted coconut, it just give it another level of taste. Cook time is chill time.

      Really didn't like the soggy nature of this ambrosia. I prefer the fluffier whipped versions and I thought the pudding and cream made it very heavy and hard to eat -- too rich and heavy for a fruit salad type desert.

      Really enjoyed this salad, added a touch of orange juice to it just for a little color, otherwise followed the recipe to the T. DH enjoyed it last night, and I put a little in the freezer and he ate it tonight, he said it was good both ways. Thank you for another keeper of a recipe.

      Oh my Goodness Jellyqueen, I was looking for something different in a Pudding Dessert and this one is It! This is delicious! I added Crushed Pecans and it was fabulous!
