Pistachio Ambrosia
1 (3 1/2 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix(dry)
1 (8 ounce) can mandarin oranges drained
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 cup shredded coconut
1 can of fruit cocktail drained
1 cup miniature marshmallow
1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip thawed

In a large bowl mix pineapple, juices and pistachio pudding together until well blended. It will begin to get thickened. Add the drained fruits, marshmallows, half the coconut and fold in the cool whip.
I usually put this in a see through bowl, top with the rest of the coconut and pistachio nuts, refrigerate before serving.

Mix all ingredients in bowl, chill for at least and hour before serving!
Top with pistachio's,  maraschino cherries and coconut for garnish..
You can make this for any Holiday or function.  Christmas tree filled pans are always a great party pleaser.  If you don't want to make this a green ambrosia than use instant French Vanilla pudding. 
 This dessert is also great for baby showers, tinted in pink or blue or even green!....
