7 Ways to use Bananas That Aren’t Nicecream

 

Everyone loves banana nice cream. Some days I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Other times you have a stock pile of bananas in your freezer or on the kitchen counter and you just don’t feel like the classic solutions. I’ve been there – which is why I am here to tell you about 7 more interesting ways to use bananas than in nice cream (or oatmeal).

Baked Banana Donuts

Who doesn’t love donuts? Or banana bread for the matter? ¬†Why not combine the two in this easy recipe from One Green Planet? You can the make the recipe as is or experiment and health-ify with different flours and sugars. Maybe make some sort of chia seed icing to go on top – and then send me some.

Healthier Banana Trifle

Whip up some vegan banana bread (or donuts), pick up a can of coconut cream and slice some bananas. Cut up the banana bread and chill and whip the coconut cream and then layer! I don’t have a specific recipe for this, but you can easily google vegan banana bread, how to make coconut whipped cream and how to make trifle. I hope you get the gist.

Banana Chips

Slice, bake, devour. Banana chips are a personal favorite and so easy to make at home. Here is a simple recipe from Over 60 that you can make in your oven.

Popsicles

I can’t wait until it starts heating up so I can eat popsicles without freezing. Delish Knowledge has an amazing looking almond butter banana (two of my favourite foods) recipe. I’ve also seen people throw chunks of chocolate, nuts and even cereal into the molds with their favorite smoothie. Get creative!

Raw Cake

Regular banana breads and cakes are amazing, but raw cake is spectacular too. Here is the recipe to one from Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen.

PS. In the coming weeks I will be sharing my adaption on raw cake, free of oil and plant milks/creams, as well as easy substitutions.

Hummus(?)

This sounds weird – right? That’s what I thought when I was scrolling through Pinterest. So I knew I had to include it in this round up of recipes. Make the Best of Everything has created a wonderful sweet hummus – she even has suggestions of what to dip in it!
