Yes, Mr. Banana even has his own song-remember it? The lowly banana is, in reality, a big star. Not only are bananas delicious, everyone knows also that one banana is a whole days worth of potassium. At only 100 calories, that is quite a deal
This is really only the beginning of the banana story though. For example, I NEVER make a smoothie without a soft banana or two. Does anyone-I think not. It goes best, in my opinion, with a cup of unflavored Greek yogurt, a scoop of protein powder, some blueberries and strawberries, some ice cubes and my secret ingredient-a cup of 5 calorie cranberry juice.
Also, you can make that non dairy ice cream that is so very good. Freeze some banana chunks, add your favorite flavors like a bit of vanilla or some chocolate syrup, use any non-dairy milk, I prefer oat milk, and blend. Add or use less liquid to determine your texture. Freeze and enjoy.
Some people use a mashed banana as a moisturizer too, but to be honest, I have not tried that. I have used avocado though and it works! Try the banana facial and let me know!
PS if you have extra bananas that are going black, freeze them right away for future use in a bunch of different things.
