Do you ever just wake up thinking about something totally random? Like you have no idea how or why you’re even thinking about it? That happened to me this week and of all things it was Ambrosia Salad. A light, citrusy, marshmallow filled delight and I knew how to make it deLITEful…so I did. And then my tummy did the dreaming.
Ambrosia Pie has all of the goodness of Ambrosia Salad, tucked into a tasty graham cracker crust to be served for dessert! This no bake pie is perfect for spring parties and potlucks, and it is also a great dessert for any night of the week since it requires just a few minutes of prep!
Ambrosia Pie is every bit as decadent as it sounds! This pretty no bake pie recipe turns a classic side dish into deliciously simple dessert! All of the flavors we love in ambrosia salad are piled high into a graham cracker crust!
Ambrosia Salad is something we always had on our turkey dinner table which as a kid I always thought was awesome. It’s was kind of like being allowed to have dessert for dinner. Once I had my own family, we have always enjoyed either Ambrosia Salad or Cranberry Millionaire Salad with turkey dinner and then it occurred to me, since everyone loves it so much, why not make it into a dessert. Loaded with coconut, pineapple, oranges and marshmallows it was already practically a dessert anyhow.
I love this recipe in a graham crust but if you prefer a flaky crust, by all means, you can use your favorite recipe or even a store bought crust which you can bake and cool before filling! In fact, I have made this with a shortbread crust to rave reviews too!You’ll want to ensure you don’t drain your pineapple, you need the liquid to mix with the pudding!
- 1 can (20 oz) Pineapple Tidbits packed in water – drained
- 1 can Fruit Cocktail packed in water – drained
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/2 container Skinny TruWhip / Fat Free Cool Whip / So Delicious Lite Whipped topping thawed (or other light whipped topping in a tub)
Dump all ingredients in a big bowl.
Your tummy will be amazed…your tracker will be deLITEd.
Stores well in the fridge for several days IF you can wait that long!
Simple, easy and yummy! I usually add Maraschino cherries, coconut, walnuts and mandarin oranges to my pie. Cherries and walnuts make it taste so much better! Give it a try, you will love it!
