  • 1/2 cup whipping cream (I do not use heavy, just regular whipping cream)
  • 1 cup seedless grapes, washed and sliced

  • 1 11oz can mandarin oranges
  • 3/4 cup miniature marshmallows

  • In a mixing bowl or stand up mixer, beat whipping cream until peaks are stiff. Set aside.
  • Drain the fruit cocktail and oranges really well.
  • In a separate bowl, mix grapes, fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges and coconut together.
  • Fold whipping cream into the fruit.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
