Tropimix Peanut Butter Banana Cone

November 24, 2015 Blog, Recipes for Birds

The Flock says WE WANT Peanut butter!

There is nothing better than a peanut butter “ice-cream” cone. Except maybe a Tropimix peanut butter banana cone that is !


  • ½ cup of unsalted natural creamy peanut butter (room temperature)
  • ½ cup of Small Parrot Tropimix
  • 1 banana (smashed)
  • 3 to 4 small ice-cream cones.


In small mixing bowl, combine the Small Parrot Tropimix, smashed banana and peanut butter. Scoop about 1 to 2 tablespoons into the cone. Warning-your bird will love it!

No cones: Take wooden popsicle stick (wooden tongue depressors – for large birds, the bigger the stick, the better) and scoop up about a tablespoon and offer to your bird.

Beta-carotene booster: Skip the crunch-cut a pepper (hot or sweet) in half and scoop in mixture to make an edible serving bowl that’s loaded with vitamin A!
