Creamy fruit salad

Ambrosia fruit salad
So first off this fruit salad recipe is very versatile. I typically use whatever fruits I find that are in season, look the best, and are the least expensive.
This time the blueberries and strawberries were buy one get one free so I focused on those and grabbed a can of mandarin oranges in light syrup to add as well.
The creamy mixture is just two ingredients, light or fat free sour cream and whipped topping…that’s it!! It brings a creaminess to this easy fruit salad recipe and a bit of sweetness too.
I have added tiny marshmallows at times and called it ambrosia too.

For our ambrosia we use sour cream, for this and our pistachio ambrosia Cool whip is better I think.
