At Healthy Smart Living, we hate wasting food. That’s why when we’ve let our bananas ripen a bit too much, whether due to not being home or plain forgetfulness, we still want to put them to good use. Check out these tasty overripe banana recipes that you will find yourself using over and over again.
Nice cream is an ice cream made with a frozen banana base. When your bananas are getting too well done, just peel them, break them into chunks, and freeze them. Then when you want a healthy dessert that tastes amazing, blend it with frozen mango. The result is a tropical soft serve that is hard to stop eating.
It’s so hot outside! That’s why we can get on board with any no-bake recipes right now. This creamy concoction would make for a perfect end to any dinner or even as a midnight snack in front of the fridge (don’t judge us).
Sometimes we hate the taste of fresh bananas in our smoothies, BUT (and this might sound strange) we love, love, love frozen bananas in our smoothies. Not only do they add a wonderful, creamy consistency to the drink, but they taste fantastic this way too!
This banana bread is amazing! Dominique Ansel is magic when it comes to baked goods and this decadent and delicious banana bread is no exception. It might seem like a lot of batter, but rest assured that it will all fit and bake nicely in one loaf pan.
Crazy for Crust ups the ante on this amazingly delicious looking cake with a lovely topping of cream cheese frosting. We cannot not love anything with cream cheese frosting on top!
How can you not feel OK eating this cake? Not only are you getting in bananas, but there is zucchini in it too! We fell in love with the addition of pudding and the brown butter glaze. Drool.
With the addition of blueberry compote, this cake gets an artistic, swirled top that is gorgeous. It’s a fantastic way for those on Paleo to get in a sweet treat while staying on their plan. Plus, blueberries are chock full of antioxidants, right?
