Used only half of the strawberry gelatin, stawberries instead of peaches, skipped the pineapple. Wonderful, light dessert. Everyone loved it.

A so-so dessert. I made it for Easter dinner. My husband's family usually beg for the recipes before they leave, but they didn't for this dessert. Maybe next time I'll use pound cake and change the types of fruit.

I used strawberries instead of peaches (as suggested by a few others). It was easy to make and everyone loved it. Thanks, Mel!

Very quick and easy. Great to use different fruit, puddings or gelatins.

This recipe was ok I guess...nothing spectacular. Hubby and I took it on a picnic, and neither of us thought it was too great. Just a suggestion for someone, I would use strawberries next time and give it more of a "strawberry banana" flavor. Oh well...I doubt there will be a next time. Thanks! Ally

This was pretty tasty. I used strawberries, the bananas and pineapple, and made the pudding mix with non-fat milk. It was pretty good, especially considering how low in calories it is.

I really liked this recipe alot. I followed the advice of another reviewer and used strawberries instead of peaches with the bananas. I left out the peach juice without a problem. I highly recomend using a homemade angel food cake and real wipped cream for a very special occasion. (I chose Angel Food Cake III from this site.) It was a big hit at my son's birthday party and he was very happy to have the strawberry cake he had requested.

Made this for a New Year's Eve party - everyone wanted the recipe. I used fresh strawberries and everyone said it was wonderful! Very easy to make.
