Pink Ambrosia for a Baby Shower


A perfect collection of color for a baby shower I had to attend. Mixture of colored marshmallows with tinted pink whipped topping, a coworker will be welcoming a little girl in a few weeks!

1 3 1/4 oz package of instant french vanilla pudding mix
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple drained

1 - 16oz or 20 oz can fruit cocktail drained
 2 - 8 oz cans mandarin oranges drained
1 10 oz  bag colored miniature marshmallow
1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip tinted with 1 drop of red food coloring

Garnish:
1/2 cup coconut tinted with 1 drop red food coloring and 1 tablespoon water mixed together set aside
maraschino cherries with stems for garnish

 In a medium size bowl add pudding with pineapple and juice evenly.  Mix all the rest of the other ingredients in order together . Fold in whipped topping. Chill and top with maraschino cherries and  sprinkle with tinted coconut.


Note: Use pistachio instant pudding for green color if the sex of the baby is unknown. You won't have to tint the whipped topping as it will all turn a light green. If you need blue proceed with blue food coloring to the whipped topping and coconut.
