Several months back, I started pinning about bananas. Several of my friends got curious. Why bananas? I didn’t start a blueberry or an orange board. Nope, just bananas. Am I banana-crazed?
Yep. For multiple reasons. Bananas are a whole-food. They are easily portable as a snack for kids and moms. Everyone in my family (including Baby Will) can and will eat them. They are a great breakfast go-with and post-run snack. Great reasons, right? Well, I also happen to be a fan of Chiquita bananas in particular. Why? Because I’m a Charter Chiquita Mom.
In a mere few days Chiquita will be launching their *NEW* Chiquita Moms community. I, along with my other awesome Charter Chiquita Moms, will be posting on a range of topics including family activities, parenting tips, crafts, and of course recipes involving Chiquita bananas. Sounds fun, right? Well VIP access is yours, dear readers! An invitation to join our Chiquita Moms is here! Simply visit: www.ChiquitaMoms.com, enter in your email address, and you’ll be the first to be notified when the community goes live.
My pinning about bananas is all a little more clear, now. Right? I’ve found a lot of great recipes and “crafts” (I put that in parentheses because any craft I would do is rather elementary). Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite Chiquita Banana pins here. Join the Chiquita Moms site and I’ll even show you how I put my own twist on some of these creations!
Got any favorites? Let me know, and I’ll tackle them for you sooner rather than later and share my review on ChiquitaMoms.com!
French Toast Kabobs – anything on a stick goes over well in our house!
Bert and Ernie Toddler Treats – I’m thinking my version of this might be laughable.
Nutella and Chiquita Banana Ice Cream – I’m a sucker for anything with Nutella in it!
Chiquita Banana & Oatmeal Smoothie. Smoothies are one of my favorites snacks and are a great way to use up the bananas that are a little more brown than what I prefer to eat out-of-the-peel. 🙂
