Tasty Banana Recipes
Sometimes it is hard to get our five-a-day, which is why I have created a fun collection of fruity banana recipes which are quick, simple and delicious ways to get those all important vitamins into our diet. Who says fruit has to be boring?
Banana breakfast – There are all kinds of things you can do with bananas to make them more tasty. Why not kick start your day with a banana smoothie? Simply blend together some milk, a few ice cubes, a banana and a mango. Serve in a glass with additional ice cubes for a refreshing fruity drink. A slightly more indulgent breakfast option is to whip yourself up some pancakes. Make sure your pancakes don’t stick to the pan by waiting until the frying pan is very hot before you pour the batter in. While it is heating, you have time to look up some other banana recipes or have a quick game of UNO, but make sure to always keep an eye on the pan. Once your pancakes are cooked, top with maple syrup, sliced banana and pineapple
Banana Dessert – How about banana ice cream? This recipe is super healthy, low in fat and very tasty Simply slice 4 bananas, place in a tray, cover and slip in the freezer for about an hour. Once they are frozen, place the chinks into a food processor and blend with some milk until it becomes a smooth creamy texture. Scoop into small bowls and serve with a sprinkling of toasted almond flakes, some toffee sauce or a wafer.
If you have some friends over for dinner, why not treat them to a fruity and sweet raspberry and banana crunch dessert? Simply slice some bananas and place in a small oven-proof bowl with a few fresh raspberries. Meanwhile, heat a pan and melt some butter and sugar together, then allow to cool slightly. Crush half a packet of ginger-nut cookies and mix in with the butter and sugar mixture until the cookie crumbs become sticky. Spread over the fruit and bake in the oven until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream and a chocolate straw. Delicious!
