Heavenly Hash or Ambrosia Recipe...

I want to wish all of you a safe and relaxing Memorial Day. Here in the states, Memorial Day honors all those who have made the greatest sacrifice for their country and all those still serving to keep our country free. Thank you to the men and woman who are serving at home and abroad and to their families who sacrifice so much.

Memorial Day is a day for family, friends and food, so I wanted to share a great picnic recipe we always have at any function. We call it Heavenly Hash, but some call it Ambrosia. No matter what the name is delicious.

Heavenly Hash Recipe

One 15 ounce can Mandarin Oranges...drained
One 20 ounce can Pineapple chunks...drained
One 30 ounce can Fruit Cocktail...drained
One 10-14 ounce bag Sweetened Coconut
One 10 ounce bag Mini Marshmallows
One 16 ounce container Sour Cream

The measurements of the fruits don't have to be exact...just whatever can size you have on hand or which fruit you like more of!

In a large bowl, mix all drained fruit with coconut, mini marshmallows and sour cream. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Make a few hours before or the day before you need it to incorporate the flavors.


Have a great day,

  1. This is a staple at our Thanksgiving dinner each year, but it is delicious any time!

  2. This looks so delicious! Thank you so much for posting the recipe I can't wait to try it :)

  3. Karen, This recipe was so timely. I love this stuff and I have to bring a dish to our family picnic on Monday. Guess what's it is going to be??? Also I have to bring deviled eggs -- that's what they are expecting from me!! Have a wonderful holiday with your family too.

  4. We make a similar dish, but we put in pistachio pudding mix and it is green. I love that stuff!!!

  5. After reading your recipe I went to the pantry and pulled out everything and made a quick mix and taste test. Very good! Taking this dish to a cookout today. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. Oh gosh, this is such an old recipe and was a fav when I was a kid. thanks for posting.

  7. Oh!! I had forgotten all about that!! Definitely Pinning!!! Thank you!

  8. I love this recipe! It's one of my favorites...I posted the recipe the other day but I have a few more ingredients. Thanks for sharing!!

  9. I LOVE THIS!!! (but without the coconut) Growing up, it was always included in the Holiday meals at family gatherings. Since I moved away from my family many years ago and had my own kids, I used to try to continue this tradition, but I was the only one eating it. My sons were not as fond of it as I am. I do occasionally make it for other types of gatherings that I need to provide a dish.

  10. I don't care for it but it used to be at every holiday dinner. Those mini marshmallows used to come in a rainbow color package and that is what they used and pistaschio pudding like someone said. I might have eaten it if it didn't have the coconut!

  11. Made this and it was a hit! We used watermelon, fresh pineapple, Mangos & strawberries
    fruit salad recipe.

  12. Sour cream? I've eaten Ambrosia many times, but never with sour cream! It's always made with sweetened whipped cream here in the south! Some use Cool Whip now, though, but not me. I wouldn't like it at all with sour cream.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
