  • 1 banana
  • 4 tablespoons low-fat natural yoghurt

Method

  1. Arrange the mango, papaya, pineapple and strawberries onto a serving plate.

    Information:

    To keep the cost down, just use 1 type of fruit to serve with the dip. You could try apple or pear slices instead – or whatever fruits are on offer or in season.

  2. Slice the banana into a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the yoghurt and stir well to mix. Serve, dipping the pieces of fruit into the banana mixture.

    Information:

    Make the banana dip shortly before serving so it doesn't go brown.
