We all find ourselves in this position at some point: You’re at the store and buy a hand of bananas with every intention to eat them up with your morning eggs. But as the days pass, they become more and more unappetizing. Let’s just be honest here, browning mushy fruit is kind of gross. If it was a brown mushy apple, it would be in the trash before you could finish saying, “Eeeeeewwww”!
But don’t let those brown bananas get you down. And don’t throw them out! Did you know America wastes 40% of its food? That’s 20 pounds of food waste per person per month! Yeah, that’s kind of a big deal.
Here are five fun, easy, and delicious things to do with your browning bananas.
1. Freeze them!
This is the first and easiest thing to do once you see your bananas browning because you can use them for just about anything! Simply slice them up in ¼” slices, place in a container, and pop in your freezer! Done!
Use those bananas in a delicious and healthy smoothie. You could use the frozen ones (see #1), too. Actually, you should use the frozen bananas because it will help chill the smoothie without having to add too much extra ice.
3. Banana Bread
4. Banana Streusel Muffins
5. Banana Royale
A version of banana pudding pie, but super easy and even more tasty! This recipe will use up at least three of those bad boys of the banana world. This dessert is so delicious and is even better the next day… if it lasts that long. You’re welcome!
