Bananas

How do you all feel about bananas? I know that's an odd question to ask, but for me it's been a love/hate relationship. Growing up, I wasn't too fond of the funny shaped yellow fruit. It wasn't until college that I actually grew to like them. What changed?? Adding peanut butter to a (barely any green) banana! I hate the taste of a banana with any spots...the more spotty it gets...the worse it is. This became problematic when I started living on my own. Obviously they come in bunches of 5-8...so inevitably there would be 4 bananas that would be "bad" by the end of the week. There are a few remedies to this spotty banana problem:

1. Banana bread! Freeze the nanners and pull them out when you want to make the bread, or muffins.
2. Use them in oatmeal! Because the bananas are so sweet at this stage, you don't have to add additional sweetener to your oatmeal.

How do you use up spotty bananas?

  1. I'm a chiquita banana and I've come to say
    bananas have to ripen in a certain way
    and when they're flecked with brown
    and have a golden hue
    bananas taste the best and are the best for you

    you can put them in a salad
    you can put them in a piiieeee
    any way you want to eat them,
    it's impossible to beat them!

  3. Kelly- I never thought to put them in a salad! I'll have to try that sometime.

    Thanks Carla, I have no idea how I'm keeping up with it...I think it's been a great way to procrastinate doing work:)

    Hayley- I can't believe I forgot to mention putting them in smoothies. Unfortunately, the last time I used our blender, it stopped blending and smelled like it was burning haha. So no smoothies until I get a new one.
