You could definitely make this with fresh fruits - apples and bananas need to be chopped and mixed with some lemon juice to avoid discoloration. You can use mangoes, peaches, grapes, pomegranate... the list is endless! It is better to avoid citrus fruits for making this dessert. The use of canned fruits is only to speed-en up the process!
