Ingredients

  • 3 (454g) Bananas
  • 2 medium oranges peeled and cut.
  • 1 (16 oz/ 454g) container Strawberries.
  • 1 pound (454g) diced Mangos.
  • 2 cups (300g) Grapes.

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup (120ml) orange juice.
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice.
  • 1-2 Tablespoons honey. Note1
  • 1 Tablespoons mint leaves. Note 2

Instructions

  • In a sauce pan over medium high heat, bring sauce ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 2-3 minutes until the sauce is infused by the mint leaves. Turn heat off and strain.Set aside to cool down.
  • In a deep bowl, layer the fruits making sure to put the banana slices at the bottom topped with oranges if using then the rest of your fruits in any given order. Note3
  • Pour the sauce over, cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Toss and serve with more sauce on the side if desired.

Notes

Note1: You can skip the honey altogether if your fruits are sweet enough. Mangoes I have used was kind of sour but the rest of the fruits were sweet so I just used one Tablespoon of honey.
Note2: you can increase the mint leaves or use a different herb like basil if you would like to. Also you can flavor the sauce with vanilla, orange blossom water or rose water.
Note3: We love having a little bit tender- but not mushy- banana slices so I put them at the bottom so they will be soaked in the sauce as this will flavor the sauce with banana meanwhile keeping the bananas from changing color. If you do not like tender banana slices and want them firm, then delay adding the banana slices until the very end and add just add when you are ready to serve.
