Below are some of the many ways that bananas come in handy when you are craving a snack or meal that is on the sweeter side.

  • Banana Pancakes

Jack Johnson had the right idea when he wrote and produced “Banana Pancakes”. This addition to a breakfast classic is a great way to make your Sunday mornings that much brighter. Because of the versatility of bananas, adding cinnamon to the mix makes it that more interesting.

  • Banana Ice Cream

This dessert is not only delicious but easy to make. Simply freezing bananas and throwing them in the blender makes for a healthy dessert. Adding your favorite juices or milks will make for a better consistency and taste.

  • Banana Toast

As avocado toast gains popularity many are overlooking the fact that bananas are delicious on toast.  Bananas with peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon on toast makes for an awesome breakfast meal or snack. Along with banana toast, do not forget the fact that making banana bread is both entertaining and delicious!

  • Chocolate Dipped Bananas

Chocolate dipped bananas are a great dessert for a hot day. Freezing the bananas, dipping it in your favorite chocolate, and adding fun toppings is a great spin on the regular banana.

  • Bananas and Peanut Butter

Although this is not as interesting as the other options, just having a banana and peanut butter is not only delicious, but great for when you are on the go. Also, at most supermarkets you can find pouches of peanut butter that you can easily throw in your bag for when you do not have time to crack open a jar at home!

Whether you like your bananas with peanut butter, chocolate, cinnamon, honey, or all the above, this fruit can be eaten in so many different ways. The multitude of opportunities allows for you to enjoy bananas both on the go and at home!
