Bananas and Grapes with Lime

Here’s a very easy dessert which pays back a minimum of effort tenfold. Slicing, squeezing and stirring and you’re done! Easy ingredients to have on hand too. The combination of flavours is lovely: the tart lime, sweetened with sugar, smoothed by the bananas and balanced out with grapes.

I don’t remember where this recipe came from anymore, so I can’t hand out credit, but thanks to whoever came up with this. I serve it often and it’s always a hit. And finally, a whatfoodimade recipe that uses bananas that are not brown.
