We understand if some people are not fans of eating overripe bananas. But don’t throw them in the trash if you feel this way. Instead, check out these ideas that will allow you to make the most out of them.

Banana Bread

Overripe bananas are ideal for banana bread. Some people even claim that banana bread is even better when made with overripe bananas, and we tend to agree. This will help you to put the overripe bananas to good use while getting yourself a dessert that you can enjoy for a couple of days at least.

Banana Pancakes

Ready to take your pancakes to a whole other level? Then, peel the overripe bananas and smash them with a fork. Add the smashed bananas to the pancake batter, mix in, and you will be surprised with how great your pancakes turn out.

Banana Ice Cream

You can get yourself a frozen treat in no time with overripe bananas. Simply peel the bananas, cut them into chunks, and pop them in a freezer. After they are frozen, throw them into a food processor or a blender, add a splash of milk, and blend until you get a smooth consistency.

Banana Smoothie

If you are not a fan of frozen treats, then a banana smoothie is the way to go. You can combine it with some Greek yogurt, honey, milk, and a few other ingredients you like to kick off your morning with a healthy drink. And the fact that bananas are overripe won’t make it taste any less great.
