It’s officially fall now, but for the most part it still feels like summer. Lately the gibbons have been enjoying frozen banana pops as enrichment—our special recipe.
We had lots of very ripe bananas among our donated pallets of Costco produce recently, and in the warm weather those babies just don’t keep well, so our staff has gotten creative.
The bananas are thoroughly mashed, and then the puree is thinned with a little bit of a nutrition drink to make the pops a little more healthful.
They were a hit—even if they did get a little squishy as they melted. Scrappy, Spanky, and Ziggy liked them especially!
The banana pops of summer—to be enjoyed while they last!
