Chiquita understands that being a mom may be the most challenging, yet rewarding job out there. This is why it’s important to take care of yourself and your family. Bananas contain 3 sources of natural sugar: glucose, fructose and sucrose as well as a significant amount of your daily fiber. According to Dr. Lisa Metzgar for Families Online Magazine, “two [Chiquita] bananas provide enough energy for an intense workout.” WOW! Additionally, bananas contain potassium, Vitamin B6 and complex carbohydrates. I love foods that pack such a nutritional punch!
Not sure what to do with your bananas? Try this yummy treat:
Quick Chiquita Chocolate Banana Pop Recipe
- 1 whole Chiquita Banana
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 cup Crisp rice cereal or crushed nuts (optional)
- 2 whole Ice Pop Sticks
- 1 sheet Plastic Wrap
- 1 sheet Wax Paper
Peel the banana, cut it in half width-wise and insert the sticks part way into each banana half. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for about an hour. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt them on half power, checking every 10 seconds so they don’t burn. Dip the bananas in the melted chocolate till they’re coated. Dip in rice cereal or crushed nuts, if you like. Place on wax paper and put in the freezer to set for at least one hour.
What a delicious way to get your kids to eat their bananas! Whether your starting your little one on solids or looking for a mid-day snack, Chiquita has you covered!
