10 Ways to Use Ripe Bananas

10 Ways to Use Bananas from Weelicious.com


If there's one food that I buy way too much of on a weekly basis it's bananas. We must go through 3-5 daily, so it's tough not to grab a big bunch or two every time I'm at the grocery. After all, bananas are inexpensive, super kid friendly, high in potassium and easy to digest. These 10 ways to use ripe bananas will save you any time you've got a few lying around and need a little extra inspiration. All of these recipes are super duper simple and let the natural sweetness and texture of the bananas do much of the work. If you don't have time to make anything before they go really brown you can even freeze them or pop them into your morning smoothie.

What's your favorite way to use ripe bananas? Love for you to tell me in the comments below!

    I love using bananas in smoothies as a sweetener. I like banana dogs for a quick, but filling snack. Or if I have time to make banana bread I love to substitute some of the bananas with mashed avocados, and then throw in flaxseed meal, nuts if they're on hand, and sometimes frozen berries.

    My husband freezes the bananas once they start browning and uses them in his morning smoothies. If they pile up in the freezer -- its banana bread time!

  • We have trees that give us the sweetest, creamiest bananas I've ever had! I freeze & use for banana bread, smoothies & when I have a sweet craving...thaw in a dessert dish, top with cinnamon, a dollop greek yogurt & a honey drizzle-delicious!!

    I freeze whole bananas. My kids love these banana popsicles as an afternoon school treat. I also split bananas lengthwise and broil to carmelize the top.
