Recipe Information

# of Servings: 6
Recipe Created By: ruhbehka


1 11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1 15 oz can pineapple chunks, drained
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut (optional)
1 cup Tofutti® Better Than Sour Cream substitute, or dairy sour cream
1 small banana, sliced (optional)


Drain the canned fruit very well, then stir together in a serving bowl along with the sour cream substitute, coconut, and mini marshmallows. Chill well. Just before serving, stir in the banana slices, if desired.



You can change out the fruit according to your preferences or dietary restrictions, and add chopped pecans or walnuts in place of the coconut.

This works very well with real sour cream or with Tofutti substitute. It would probably work nicely with plain coconut milk yogurt, as well.

This can be adjusted to be free of most allergens, if you can find a suitable sour cream or substitute and marshmallows. It may not be possible to be free of all allergens at the same time however. For corn free marshmallows, you can make your own or use kosher for Passover options (which would contain fish gelatin and possibly egg white).

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.
Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.
