- 1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 1 pint blueberries
- ½ cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 4 bananas
1. Mix strawberries and blueberries together in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice; toss lightly. Refrigerate until cold, at least 30 minutes.

Red raspberries can be substituted for strawberries. The lemon juice acts as a preservative so that the bananas don't turn brown.
