Holding the banana curving upwards, remove the top ¼ layer, using a sharp knife. With a small melon scooper, make a shallow, elongated groove to hold the other fruits. Spritz the banana with orange juice or lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Fill banana boat with assorted fruits as shown. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream.
