4 new summertime banana recipes you’ll love. Bananas are a great healthy snack, but they’re also good for grilling...

Any time of the year, bananas are hands down the best when it comes to easy snacking. This summer, we realize things are going to look a bit different for friends and families practicing social distancing, so we wanted to do our part by sharing four new delicious BBQ banana recipes!

Each recipe not only puts a unique twist on classic summertime treats using grilled Chiquita bananas, but will be sure to make this summer special for friends and families to gather outside and create fun, long-lasting memories.

Chiquita bananas are one of the best healthy snacks to fuel summer fun, and although there are no wrong ways to eat them, grilling them enhances their flavor and highlights a smoky sweetness. Bananas are truly one of the healthiest fruits, packed full of vitamins and minerals like potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B2, E and C, bananas offer essential support for a healthy lifestyle. They also contain natural sugars that provide a slow and steady boost of energy which is great for diet snacking.

“Chiquita is excited to highlight the fun side of summer grilling by blending summertime favorites like s’mores and BBQ, into four new recipes that put a unique twist on the classics with Chiquita bananas,” said Tina Varjabedian, Marketing Manager of North America. “As families continue to be mindful of social distancing, we hope that these banana recipes can be a part of their summer fun.”
