I buy bananas every time I walk into a grocery store it seems. Why? They’re such a versatile fruit! The extra bananas are put to good use by using these overripe banana recipes!

It’s crazy how bananas go from green to overly ripe just overnight it seems. I hate having food waste and bananas are a great way to add extra nutrition and vitamins to recipes. My obsession with buying bananas started when I was pregnant with my son. The doctor told me to start eating them to help keep my leg cramps away thanks to the vitamin B6.

Over ripe bananas give a simple recipe bulk and creaminess you don’t often find in a healthy ingredient. Have a sweet tooth? The natural sweetness in old bananas let’s you curb your cravings without any additional sugar. The best part about using these recipes with overripe bananas is that you can get as decadent as you’d like to as healthy as you’d like!

Once my bananas start getting brown spots, I peel my bananas and put them into a freezer bag. Then I use the bananas in easy recipes such as:

  • banana bread (have you ever had chocolate banana bread or banana bread topped with cream cheese frosting?!)
  • muffins like banana chocolate chip or banana nut,
  • banana cake or banana cream pie
  • banana cookies
  • banana pudding
  • Fruit bowls and smoothies

These recipes are great for any time of day, from the perfect breakfast on a busy morning, to a healthy snack or afternoon pick up or as a sweet treat in a classic dessert. You can even replace an egg using a ripe banana, it’s so delicious in a good cookie recipe!

My daughter’s favorite way to use up our frozen bananas is to make nice cream out of them! You can add some chocolate chips, peanut butter, or a little cinnamon and then blend everything up! Your frozen ripe bananas become just like ice cream!
