Packed with vitamins, rich in fibre, less than 66 calories each, but as tasty and sweet as any chocolate bar. Sounds a little too good to be true, but sun dried Lady Finger Bananas really are in a class of their own when it comes to picnic snacks…
As with any bananas, Lady Finger Bananas count as one of your five a day are a good source of dietary fiber, certain vitamins and potassium. But where they differ from their cousins in our supermarkets is in their constituency and sweetness.
Known as ‘date’ or ‘fig’ bananas, the smaller fruits are renowned for their sweet sticky taste. When the bananas are slowly dried in the sun, they hold some of their moisture, unlike the dried banana chips you may be used to, creating a unique healthy snack that retains the sweet, sticky deliciousness the bananas are famed for alongside the health benefits – in combination making them a ‘super snack’ that is a fantastic addition to any child’s lunch box or grown-ups picnic basket.
Tropica Organic Whole Dried Lady Finger Bananas have recently been launched and the organic, raw and natural bananas combine an amazing flavour and sticky taste that results in an irresistible snack that can also be chopped up and added to cakes and muffins for a delicious exotic twist.
Tropica Organic Whole Dried Lady Finger Bananas are just £2.29 for a 200g pack of approximately 10 bananas from health stores or www.naturboutique.co.uk
