While the vegan diet is becoming more and more popular, finding great vegan snacks that are tasty, nutritious and healthy can be a little challenging. As veganism includes only vegetables and fruit and eliminates all animal products, including dairy, the range of foods you can use to make a good vegan snack are limited. This is where tasty, top quality Chiquita bananas come in very handy.

Vegan snacks are a great way to combat hunger between meals: rather than reaching for sugary candy, it’s just as easy to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthier way –the unique, creamy sweetness of a Chiquita banana is a great choice.

We have lots of yummy Chiquita vegan recipes for you to try, as you’ll see below! You can choose from vegan banana bread, vegan desserts, and vegan pancakes – not to mention amazing vegan smoothies!

Banana health benefits

The best part of including Chiquita bananas among your vegan snacks is that they are bursting with health benefits. Bananas have good levels of vitamin B6, a very handy vitamin that provides all sorts of benefits for the body, including helping to ensure a normal energy yielding metabolism and functioning of the immune system, as well as aiding the production of red blood cells.

Bananas are also famous for their good levels of potassium, which is an extremely important electrolyte that aids regulation of the body’s fluid balance and muscle contractions as well as helping to ensure the normal functioning of the immune system and maintain normal blood pressure.

Bananas are also a very respectable source of fiber, which helps you to feel fuller for longer so you are less likely to over-eat – the fiber works in tandem with the carbs in your favorite fun-filled fruit to give you a long-lasting energy boost that will keep you going as you tackle your day.

As you can see, our website is full of fantastic ideas for vegan snacks, and Chiquita bananas are at the heart of each one! So, next time you’re in the store, don’t forget to pick up a bunch as an amazing start to your vegan snack journey.
