  1. CUT crescent shape out of one end of the pita with kitchen shears to form purse opening.

Squeeze yogurt into pita pocket on top of peanut butter. Add bananas and strawberries.
  2. PLACE sandwich on one side of plate, with opening facing center. Squeeze extra peanut butter in a semi-circle arc from one end of purse opening to the other, making the purse handle. Decorate top of purse with more peanut butter, if desired, and fruit.
