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

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 ...

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 recom...

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.

Was very easy and fun to make with my 6 year old. We omitted the pineapple and was still very yummy!

My boyfriend really likes fruit, so he loved it, but I thought that the angel food cake got a little to mushy, overall good recipe
