How to use over-ripe bananas

After the last blog, a few of my freinds asked for what else can be done with over-ripe bananas.
Here is a list of suggestions, if ever you are stuck with a “problem” of Overripe Bananas. Thanks to my friends and my RD colleagues who helped me with this list. 

1.  Banana Bread
2.  Add to your smoothie
3.  Pakoras Indian-style (breaded and fried)
4.  Pancakes
5.  Spice it and make a vegetable
6.  Dip them in chocolate and nuts and freeze them on popsicle sticks to eat as a frozen treat
7.  Banana ravioli
8.  Freeze them and use it later
9.  Banana jam
10. Ice Cream
11. Banana Waffles.
12. Caramelize and make as a layer in trifle.
13. Sauteed Bananas with Orange Liqueur (yumm… sounds terrific!)

As they decompose they feed the plant healthy nutrients.
