Ambrosia is a creamy fruit salad traditionally made with pineapple, coconut, fruit cocktail, heavy cream and walnuts. Heaven! Here is my skinnier version without all the fat.

I have been craving this for weeks and couldn’t wait to make it, I used fresh berries and fresh pineapple and replaced the heavy cream with cool whip light. A perfect summertime dessert to serve at a backyard barbecue.
