Hawaiian Salad Makeover

So, I am thinking ahead to Superbowl Sunday and my Ground Hog’s Day birthday that follows it the next day. I have a hankering for the fruit salad my Mom used to serve at Thanksgiving, which only I seem to recall and which I can’t find a recipe for. I ran across the following recipe today, and made some notes to convert it. Do you have a better idea for the marshmallows?

(My planned changes shown in italics)
3 cans mandarin oranges – OK, SF variety
2 bags mini marshmallows – NO WAY. Change to 4 containers SF Kozy Shack tapioca pudding?? Better ideas out there?
1/2 medium container sour cream – 8 oz
1 jar un-stemmed maraschino cherries – 1 cup each, fresh regular cherries and grapes
1 small can crushed pineapple – OK, No Sugar Added
2 containers cool whip – Swap for 1 quart whipping cream, whipped stiff with 3 Tb. Fiberfit and 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 bag coconut (optional) – 1-1/2 cups unsweetened
………………………………….. – ADD 2 cups AllBran – I know I remember this being in  Mom’s 70’s salad!
