Easiest Fruit Ambrosia

Dish: Quick & Easy
Dish Type: Fruits
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: enough for a potluck
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: none

  • 1 can - pineapple chunks (more if desired)
  • 2 cans - very cherry fruit cocktail
  • 1 tub - cool whip
  • 1 can - mandarin oranges (Optional)

open cans of fruit.  drain fully.  pour all into large bowl.  add softened but still cold cool whip.  stir.  tada!


do not make this long before serving - fruit acids break down cool whip!  you can expand or contract recipie at will. this is SOOO easy and SOOO good!  it's ALWAYS a hit at potlucks. remember - label your spoon and bowl!

I like this recipe a lot! Thanks! I opened all the cans and mixed the fruit in a glass bowl and refrigerated it. Than added the cool whip right before serving.
