We love bananas. Seriously - we eat anywhere from 10-15 bananas a week in our house. Each of us has at least one a day. So when Chiquita came out with this amazing program and contest I knew I wanted to participate. The Chiquita Cooking Lab has created this AMAZING contest! From September 29th to November 24th, you can enter your own special banana recipe for a chance to win up to $4000 CASH! Well, since we eat bananas all the time, I knew we could come up with something yummy to enter into this contest.
We came up with a combination of some of our favorite things. Bananas Foster Cheesecake Trifle. This no bake and tasty combination was a perfect recipe to share with our family, and so easy to submit at http:/www.Chiquiatabananas.com/cookinglab for a chance to win one of the weekly prizes, or the great $4000 grand prize.
