  • 3⁄4 cup blueberry or grape juice
  • 2 bananas
  • 1⁄2 cup watermelon cubes (1⁄2-inch)
  • 1⁄2 cup pineapple cubes (1⁄2-inch)

  • 4 thin pretzel sticks, each 4 inches long


  1. In each of 4 shallow bowls, place ½-cup blueberries and 3 tablespoons juice.
  2. Cut each banana in half crosswise on a diagonal, then split halves lengthwise.
  3. In the center of each bowl, arrange 2 banana slices to form the sides of the “boat.”
  4. Evenly divide the watermelon, pineapple and mango in the banana boats.
  5. To make the boat “sails,”: on a cutting board, lay one fruit roll-up sheet over the other and press together; cut the double layer into 4 triangles.
  6. Make 3 small cuts along one edge of each triangle; thread onto pretzel sticks.
  7. Push the pretzel sail into a fruit cube.
  8. Serve immediately.
