    I love this recipe. Only natural sugars and natural carbs. The very best for the body. I will, however, not use the brown sugar, or any sugar for the next batch I do, as the fruit is sweet enough all on its own!!!
    Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing it.

    While this dish looks pretty, it was too much prep work for me. A great alternative to junk desserts. I would try it again with only bananas and apples and the spices for more of a banana apple pie w/ the cinnamon flavorings. - 3/3/08

    This is the best kabob I have ever heard of and tasted. I just keep wondering why I did not think of it long ago myself. The only difference for me would be to use artificial sugar. - 10/27/08

    I won't make it again cause it raised the blood sugar. The info says no sugar but all fruits are filled with sugar as well as having brown sugar added to it. We need some honesty in the info. - 2/24/08

    Delicious! I made some for my husband and I, then took one kabob to my moms house and she and my sister were fighting over it! It took alot of prep time, but worth it if you are having several people over. - 4/12/08

  • Made these while camping following the recipe to a tee but substituting nectarines for the peaches. I got about 20 kebabs out of this recipe so I believe the nutritional is exaggerated. These were very delicious though. - 7/12/10

  • This looks like a wonderful, healthy, tasty desert. 2 Tbls of sugar for all that fruit shouldn't be a problem.
