2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
a pinch of ground ginger (optional)

a few tablespoons cold water (optional)


Mix the dressing ingredients together.

Peel and chop the bananas and kiwis. Core the apples and pears and cut into bite-size pieces. Take the grapes off their stalks.
