The holiday season often comes hand in hand with an out of control sweet tooth, overindulging and an irregular schedule. ‘Tis the season to treat yourself! But what if we told you there is a way to indulge and satisfy your sweet tooth without losing balance? Chiquita has some tips to keep you on track over the holiday season.

Dinner party desserts

Hosting a dinner party and wondering what to make for dessert? There is no need to find a happy medium between healthy and tasty when our Chiquita desserts are both! Try this Chiquita Chocolate and Banana sugar-free mousse. No added sugar, the sweetness comes from completely natural ingredients. Trust us when we say, make a double batch! Your guests will not stop at one serving! Why should they, it’s so deliciously creamy and guilt-free!

Oh, what fun it is to... sensible snack!

Between work get-togethers, long lunches and tasty shop windows, the holiday season comes with a whole lot of temptation! Trying to find the right balance can be tricky when you are constantly surrounded by sugary treats. Don’t put pressure on yourself to say no. Try keeping a Chiquita banana in your bag and snacking it before giving in to temptation. Chiquita bananas are naturally sweet, so they help with sugar cravings, and most importantly they are full of soluble fiber. Fiber helps your body to regulate its use of sugar, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and those cravings away. That way, when you’re faced with a tray of sugary treats, you will be able to stop at just one!

Potluck share plates

Oats and cacao powder are combined for a crunchy base layer, topped with a peanut butter and creamy Chiquita banana filling, scattered with peanuts and drizzled with dark chocolate. This recipe is amazingly decadent and healthy, lactose-free, gluten-free and vegan. A sure-fire hit!
