I was motivated by Instructables's the Contest Purple for giving bonus points for those who incorporate figs into their project. I immediately checked out what is the fuzz about figs. Sweet, rich in phyto-nutrients, anti-oxidants and vitamins, I'm in! I tried making a few things with figs and decided to share this sweet one with everyone. 
 
To try this on you own, you'll need:

1/3 Cup frozen black berries, washed
1/3 Cup frozen raspberries, washed
2 Strawberries, small to medium, washed, stem removed
3 Figs, sliced thin

1 Banana, peeled

Blender
Baking pan or sheet
Non-stick parchment paper
Brush
Kitchen sissors
 
Frozen blackberries and raspberries can be found in your local grocery store in frozen fruits section. Figs can be found in Good Harvest Market near you or nuts.com. 

Step 1: Puree

Place fruits into blender in the order of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and banana. Reserve slices of figs for later use as marble toppings.
Pulse a few times, then process at high-smoothie setting.
 
if you incorporated this mix into pasta what would the result taste like I wonder. Enter into italian contest

It may be used as a garnish on side or top of dish, can be eaten too. But my first reaction to incoporating it to paste is taste not good because the moisture from pasta can make leathery fruit strings soggy. However, I could be totally wrong. Let me know how it tasts if you would try.

Thanks.
It took several days for my other Instructables to be accepted in the Contest Purple, Which made me think maybe because it was not purple enough.So I tried a few more batches with different berries to get the "purple" color. Not many food is in this color. Haven't eaten the sponsor's bar before. Don't know it's color.Only can see it's wrap is in purple.
Sounds like an awesome treat! I just love berries :)
