Berry Ambrosia Salad is a creamy, fresh fruit salad that is the perfect ambrosia salad recipe for your next gathering! Everyone loves this Ambrosia Fruit Salad!

I have to say, I am one of those children of the 80’s who grew up eating Ambrosia Salad at any given potluck. That, along with any variation of pasta salad, potato salad, or Jello salad, made the 80’s a very salad-friendly decade. I mean, right?

Anyhow, I’m pulling a major throwback today. But I’m putting a modern spin on it! No more canned mandarin oranges or maraschino cherries…today we’re doing a FRESH Berry Ambrosia salad!

Berry Ambrosia Salad is creamy and perfect for a summer cookout!

What IS Ambrosia Salad?

Well, Ambrosia Salad is variation of a fruit salad, typically with sweetened pineapple, mini marshmallows and coconut! Sometimes there will be oranges, bananas, grapes, or even pecans included. Generally it’s combined with whipped cream or a whipped topping as well. It’s for SURE delicious.

But like I said today, I am modernizing my ambrosia salad recipe a little and including all fresh berries! And yes, before you ask, you can absolutely use frozen (and thawed) berries if fresh aren’t available!

This Creamy Berry Ambrosia Salad recipe uses all fresh fruit!

Then I whipped up some heavy cream and some cream cheese and folded the two together, then added in some flaked coconut. Finally I folded the fresh berries right into the ambrosia mixture!
