Halloween Banana Fun!

Halloween is quickly approaching, so we’re celebrating with some ghoulishly delicious banana treats! We’ve compiled a list of quick banana recipes and ideas that are sure to be frightfully fun at your Halloween get together. Pick your poison and dig in! Happy Halloween!

Banana Creepy Crawler: Slice a GROW banana into 1” thick slices. Spread each slice with organic almond butter. Assemble slices together on a plate. Almond butter will act as glue. Stick organic pretzel rods through almond butter to act as legs. Place two raisins at the head for eyes.

Banana ghosts: Cut a peeled GROW banana in half. Insert popsicle sticks into one end. Take two organic O-shaped oat cereal rounds and stick on the banana. These will be the eyes. Take three mini organic chocolate chips. Stick two in the middle of the Os, and one underneath to act as a mouth.

Witches Fingers: Slice GROW bananas in half lengthwise and across. Melt a combination of organic white and dark chocolates together. Dip banana segments in melted chocolate and cover completely. Place a whole chocolate-covered almond on the tip to act as a “fingernail.” Cover in wax paper and freeze for at least 3 hours.

Cauldron of Slime: Melt 16 ounces of organic baking chocolate. Stir In 2 tablespoons of organic cream and 12 drops of green food coloring. Pour into a Halloween-themed dish or bowl. Add some dry ice. Serve with sliced GROW bananas.

Pus Slush: Mix 6 cups of water with 1.5 cups of tourmaline sugar. Add 5 oz of frozen orange juice, 2 oz frozen lemon juice, 1 cup of pineapple juice and 5 mashed GROW bananas. Freeze for at least 3 hours. When ready to serve, mix in 4 quarts of lemon-lime soda and beat to a slushy consistency.

All of us at Organics Unlimited would like to wish you a happy and safe Halloween!

PMA’s Fresh Summit 2010 a GROWing Success!

PMA’s Fresh Summit “Let’s Grow” 2010 show in Orlando, Florida was a great experience for Organics Unlimited. As a first-time exhibitor, Organics Unlimited met some industry insiders and learned more about trends and new advancements in the produce industry.

This insightful conference, with over 18,000 attendees, enabled Organics Unlimited to share all the great successes of the GROW program and how we are making a difference in the organic produce industry. With a long history of organic banana growing, Organics Unlimited continues to GROW its business offering fresh, sustainable, locally-grown organic bananas.
