Ingredient Spotlight: Bananas (2012)


I eat a banana nearly every day as a snack.  They’re the perfect portable food, because they come in their own container.

They’re also wonderful to bake with and for fruit salads and such.

Here are a few of my recipes that use bananas:

  5. Once upon a time I married a man who loves banana bread. I also like banana bread, but I began to get tired of eating it all the time. I set out to find some other recipes that would help curb my husband’s banana bread cravings and satisfy my need for a little variety in our baked banana goods. We still make banana bread often, though I didn’t post any of those recipe here, but we also found some other recipes that we really like. Our absolute favorite is banana spice cookies (#33), which are like bite-sized pillows of banana bread. Sooooo good! Our second favorite is banana crumb muffins (#38) which are super light and fluffy.

  6. One of the simple ways we like to eat bananas is banana sundaes. Nothing too fancy. . . just a scoop of vanilla ice cream with sliced bananas on top and some Hershey syrup. It’s kind of a simplified version of a banana split. You can shake things up a bit and add some toppings like heath bar pieces, chocolate chips, reese cups, etc. Thanks for hosting!

  7. Interesting bit of trivia: bananas are Wal-Mart’s #1 top selling product.

    We recently got two bunches of ripe bananas in our monthly food pantry box. My spouse likes to mash them in a bowl with some peanut butter and eat them that way. I’ve been throwing them in my yogurt smoothies in the morning. Not much of a recipe but here goes:

    1 banana
    about 1/3 bag frozen fruit (blueberries, raspberries, cherries, you get the idea)
    about 1/3 of an 8oz. container PLAIN Greek yogurt
    Splenda to taste
    a little milk or water to thin the mixture

    Process in blender or food processor until smooth.

  8. What a wonderful looking group of recipes. I will be making many of them. We, too, make “Banana Sundaes”. Just the other night we had chocolate marble ice cream with sliced bananas and marshmallow topping. Oh so good. Today I bring a little “change-up” for breakfast-Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal. Thanks for hosting an always great party, Tiffany. I am looking forward to seeing what the next Ingredient Spotlight schedule will be. Have a great week.

  9. Great party, thank you so much!
