If you thought bananas were only meant for peeling and munching, think again. This versatile fruit has so much more to offer than meets the eye, and we’re about to tell you exactly what they are. If you’re looking to up your banana game (yes, that’s a thing), here are three scrumptious and creative ways to enjoy this tasty yellow fruit.
First up, we have the classic and ever-so-satisfying banana smoothie. Blend together a ripe banana, a splash of milk (or your favorite dairy-free alternative), some yogurt, and a handful of ice. You’ve now got yourself a creamy and refreshing treat that’s perfect for breakfast or as a midday pick-me-up.
Next on our banana adventure is the mouthwatering banana pancakes. Mash up a ripe banana and mix it with an egg, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a dash of vanilla extract. Heat up a skillet, pour the batter into small circles, and cook until golden brown on each side.
This one is probably least known, but it’s still darn good. For grilled bananas, slice a ripe banana lengthwise and place it on a preheated grill or stovetop grill pan. Grill for a few minutes on each side until caramelized and slightly charred.
