An old-fashioned dessert that hasn’t lost an ounce of appeal over the years, Ambrosia is extremely easy to prepare and makes a light, refreshing dessert.

  • 2-1/2 cups (half of a 10-ounce bag) miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups drained crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 carton (16 ounces) sour cream

Instructions

Mix together all the ingredients. Chill in the refrigerator.

    I love this so much better with the sour cream – the marshmallows are sweet enough!

    Love this! I make it without the pecans. It’s been a big hit at summer barbecues. I never have any leftovers.

    Glad to find an original recipe for this. The only substitution I would make is to use chopped walnuts instead of pecans.

    Glad to see someone besides myself knows what Ambrosia is supposed to be! Only alteration I make is I don’t add coconut. This does not alter the taste.

    Hooray! The “real” version of ambrosia, without those strange additions of things like cranberries. Some things should just not be messed with. Can’t wait to serve this at family dinners.
