San Juan, Puerto Rico - Hurricane Isaias came and wreaked havoc on the banana plantations around the Island. In support of our farmers, Pinta Gelato and PRoduce, the country's product distributor, have come together to offer two spectacular flavors of the creamy gelato, 100 % native made with bananas from the affected farms. We baptized it as ‘Maduros’ a creamy gelato inspired by the love of Puerto Rican cuisine where combine ‘maduros’, brown sugar and cinnamon. Green Banana or ‘Platano Verde ’gelato is an explosion of flavors and textures with ripe and green bananas, dates, and vanilla cookies.
This novel effort under the name of Plátanos de Isaías, is an initiative with social enterprises and Puerto Rican merchants developed to buy as many bananas as possible from our farmers during the coming weeks in order to mitigate their losses.
