Ambrosia Fruit Cups Recipe

Toasted coconut adds fun flavor to Ambrosia Fruit Cups. It's a breeze to toss together in minutes, or can be made ahead and chilled if you're serving a large group. "You can substitute almost any kind of fruit." Edna assures. "Another good combination is kiwi, bananas and strawberries. They taste wonderful together, and they're colorful, too."
