Is ambrosia just fruit salad with coconut and sometimes marshmallows?

I know I've had it before but don't have a fond memory of the dish...been a real long time ago, though.

Jan...

It can include oranges, pineapple, grapes, fruit cocktail, marshmallows etc.

At my house...
Mostly navel oranges (no membranes)
Fresh grated Coconut
Marachino Cherries
Blended together with sweetened whipping cream...
Whole cherry on top...

There are many versions...

Ambrosia..."Food of the Gods"

How true, how true! My Mom makes the best ambrosia, but I don't have the recipe. I need to get it to keep it going--will post if successful!

DH's dear mother used to make it every holiday season but no whipped cream. It was sort of the end of the meal, after dessert.

My mother used to make Ambrosia with fruit salad, coconut and whipped cream. It was great and when she passed I kept her old cooking book with all the receipes in it.
