Our easy ambrosia recipe is absolutely perfect for summer! So when Vintage Charm asked us to partner together and outside and enjoy some time together, we knew the recipe would be a great fit for this sponsored conversation!
Easy Ambrosia Recipe
Once the weather warms up, Justin loves to get outside and fire up the grill. The whole family loves eating outside and enjoying what the kids call “picnic foods.” I enjoy setting up a nice table full of fresh grilled foods, salads, and sweet treats out on our deck in the summer.
This past weekend, we had burgers with corn on the cob and other veggies. Instead of doing cookies or brownies, I made our quick and easy ambrosia recipe because it’s always a hit!
Check out how easy it is to make!
What You Need:
- 1 can (15oz) mandarin oranges, drained
- 1 can (20oz) pineapple chunks, drained
- 1 jar (10oz) maraschino cherries, drained
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup shredded coconut (we prefer unsweetened)
- 1 containter (8oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
What You Do:
- Place whipped topping in a mixing or serving bowl. (Our largest Pyrex Vintage Charm bowl worked perfectly for this!)
- Fold in pineapple, mandarin oranges, and cherries.
- Then fold in nuts, marshmallows, and coconut.
- Top with a cherry!
- Chill until you’re ready to serve.
That’s seriously how easy it is to make! You can prep it in minutes and it’s also easy to adjust the ingredients depending on what your family and friends like. For example, Justin isn’t a coconut fan so I make a small batch without it for him.
Vintage Charm™ Inspired by Pyrex® is a line of vintage-inspired prep and serve bowls. They make a gorgeous addition to my kitchen and my table! Plus they just make me feel all nostalgic by reminding me of a lot of dishes my grandmother had.
She also used to make this easy ambrosia recipe for us whenever we came over for dinner! How cute is our Memory Lane set? I love the colors and the look of the bowls!
They’re dishwasher and microwave safe which is exactly what I need to make cooking and serving easy. They easily go from the kitchen to the table and look great!
Vintage Charm bowls are available in select housewares, grocery stores and mass retailers, as well as VintageEntertaining.com! Each set contains three bowls in a variety of patterns including Pyrex classics Rise ‘N Shine, Spot On, Birds of a Feather, Golden Days, Memory Lane and Tickled Pink.
Later this week, you’ll have the chance to win your own set so be sure to come back because your kitchen needs these bowls, especially if you’re making ambrosia this summer!
