I made this for my father in law for christmas last year it was a big hit!!! I have to make him another pie this year for thanksgiving! It was easy and had great flavor for all you ambrosia lovers! Tip: when you set it out to thaw for cutting...cut the whole pie...makes it easy to grab another piece after putting it back in the freezer! Thank you oxmoor house for yet another great recipe!!! 8-)
Holiday fruit is blended with cream cheese and coconut, and frozen for dessert.
Yield: one 9" pie
- 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges in light syrup
- 1 (8 1/4-ounce) can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

- 3/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted
- 1 (9-ounce) graham cracker crust (extra serving size)
- Garnishes: maraschino cherries, pecan halves, additional toasted flaked coconut
- Drain oranges and pineapple, reserving 2 tablespoons pineapple syrup. Gently press oranges and pineapple between paper towels to remove excess moisture.
