I am the recipe submitter and I just wanted to add a side note since there has been a few questions on how to keep the banana slices from browning. Use fruit juice there are several fruit juices that can work to prevent discoloration of sliced bananas. If you're worried about the flavor changing stick to the sweeter lighter flavors: Lemon juice Orange juice Tinned pineapple juice Tinned or fresh grapefruit juice Lime juice Apple juice Ascorbic acid powder(aka vitamin C) or if you're in a pinch a ground-up vitamin C tablet works as well.

Another twist on this that I have seen is to use green olive grape tomato and white cheese. Read More

Instead of toothpicks I made these on top of wooden meat skewers and arranged them in a holiday vase for a party. They were a hit! Read More

I made these for Christmas Eve. They are easy to make and the kids can help. Everyone thought they were a cute little treat. I am glad I read the review about dipping the banana slice in orange juice as well as the longer wooden kabob sticks and placed them in large wine glass Read More

What fun! Thank you CNM Catering for this cute idea. We used big raspberries instead of strawberries because my grocery was out. It worked perfectly anyway. We used these on swizzle sticks in our cocktails. They were a hit! I think the alcohol in the cocktails helped keep the banana from browning!:-) Read More
