I am so excited to tell you guys about DOLE Bananas new Peel the Love Campaign!
Bananas: you grill, bake, mash, blend, spread and split bananas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, but this year, Dole is delivering one simple message about the country’s most popular fruit in 2013: Peel The Love.
“The three-word command serves as the theme of a bold, year-long Dole initiative stressing the fun, irreverence and universally beloved aspects of the iconic yellow fruit, which Dole grows more of globally than anyone else.” – Dole

To continue DOLE Bananas’ initiative to “Peel the Love” I wanted to show just how cool bananas really are. Thanks to DOLE, they sent me some awesome party supplies to host a Peel The Love banana party of my own. Their party kit included DOLE Bananas coupons, DOLE margarita glasses, reusable DOLE grocery bags, a yellow platter, banana USB Drive, and a Yonanas machine for my friends and I to enjoy! My first thought was… how can I show my readers how to throw a FUN healthy food party? Umm, obviously by hosting a DOLE Banana Nicecream party! After all, my mission is to make healthy foods fun, exciting, and always tasty!
I had a few friends over for an afternoon of Banana Nicecream and an endless healthy topping bar.
My Banana Nicecream bar consisted of frozen DOLE Bananas turned into banana nicecream/froyo with the help of Yonanas, and all of these yummy toppings:
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, pineapple, pomegranate seeds, apricot preserve, banana chips, honey roasted sliced almonds, granola, shredded coconut, crushed peanuts, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, crushed graham crackers, trail mix, pistachio toffee, cocoa almond butter, peanut butter, honey, agave, and cinnamon! I went a little crazy with my topping selection! Who doesn’t love toppings?
Instead of going to the grocery store for a pint of ice cream each, this is how we will be partying from now on. Bananas. Toppings. Pixar Movie. Best. Night. Ever.
Such a simple but healthy fun party idea for kids and families of all ages!
