It’s the 24 days of Chiquita Christmas!

Health & Lifestyle
28 Nov 2019

Christmas is coming, and everyone’s thoughts are turning towards the fabulous food to make during the festive season.

Naturally, for anyone wanting to follow a healthy lifestyle, this will include mouth-watering recipes containing delicious Chiquita bananas (like our fantastic banana bread recipe below). The best thing about these yummy recipes is that they are light, tasty, seasonal treats that go beautifully with the more traditional Christmas Day fare.

The best thing about Chiquita bananas, of course, is that as well as being the nation’s favorite sweet and creamy fruit, they contain a generous helping of fibre and potassium to aid digestion and heart health. Our bananas also contain energy-giving natural sugars to provide the boost the family needs for this special celebration. Sharing a bunch of Chiquita bananas is also a great family moment to start a day that is all about sharing.

In another exciting festive initiative, Chiquita will use Instagram to reveal its 24 days for Christmas giveaways, which will take place throughout December – @Chiquitabrands will be offering the chance to win exclusive Chiquita goodies including bowls, jackets, power banks, USB keys, umbrellas and footballs – a different prize will be available every day, so don’t forget to check in frequently to win!

Banana recipes are wonderful at any time of year but these very special recipes for banana bread and banana cookies are guaranteed to give your special day some extra sparkle. Why not make them in advance to ensure a little less work on Christmas Day itself – both banana bread and banana cookies stay really fresh if kept in an airtight container and make an ideal snack.

The best thing about our Christmas banana bread is that, like a really good Christmas stocking, it is stuffed full of fantastic ingredients – above all, Chiquita bananas! This is the sort of reward that Santa is really hoping to find when he climbs down the chimney, we guarantee! Simple to make and beautifully moist, this is one recipe you’ll come back to time and time again throughout the year.

Chiquita bananas are the perfect ingredient for all kinds of delicious and healthy treats, and also a great way to guarantee a healthy start, for Christmas Day and every day. Eaten by themselves or as part of a tasty recipe, they are the ideal way to start the holiday. Our exciting Instagram banana competitions also aim to help create a little extra Christmas joy. Merry Christmas, one and all!
