2 bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 avocado, peeled and sliced

1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into bite-size chunks

In a small saucepan, combine the condensed milk and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer over low heat and let reduce for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
