Here's an ambrosia parfait recipe I'm tempted to try. . . It sounds like the presentation would be really pretty.
1 (14 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
2 (6 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 apples, cored and cut into chunks
2 pears, cored and cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups red grapes (go for seedless)
1 cup blueberries
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (I'd probably use real whipped cream)
1 (2 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
In a large bowl, toss the pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, apple and pear chunks, grapes and blueberries together.
In a separate bowl, whisk the whipped cream into the marshmallow cream.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of fruit into the bottom of 10 parfait glasses.
Add the whipped marshmallow mixture and sprinkle with coconut.
Keep repeating layers until the glass is full.
