Posing with my favorite fruit! Posing with my favorite fruit!

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but bananas are my fruit of choice! Growing up, we always had bananas and to this day breakfast isn't complete without one! In honor of my favorite fruit, I wanted to share a few ways you can celebrate Banana Lover's Day on August 27!


-Sing this theme song: Back in 2005 Gwen Stefani taught us all how to spell "b-a-n-a-n-a-s." Even though the song doesn't seem to have anything to do with the actual fruit, it is fun and the tune will definitely get stuck in your head!

-Write a special message: Jazz up your bananas with this easy project. All you need is a toothpick, something nice to say and of course, banana.

-Add some peanut butter: Nothing beats peanut butter and chocolate but what about bananas? The combination is a delicious and healthy snack. If you want to get fancy, stick some peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds and melt to perfection.

-Savor a banana split: This popular dessert is perfect for this summer food holiday. When we asked on wave3.com, some of your favorite places for a banana split were: Polly's Freeze, Dairy Kastle, Zesto and Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen.

-Eat a banana! It's the simplest way to celebrate whether you like them ripe or soft be sure to enjoy a banana on August 27!
