How to reduce food waste: 3 quick recipes with ripe bananas
We always have these fruits, precisely because Alesia and Nicholas really like to eat them in different forms. As a fresh fruit, in smoothies or cakes.
I often had to throw them away when they looked like stains on the surface of the shell, when they became softer or darker in color. But it is not the right choice. I gave free rein to creativity and put on the table some ingredients to help me turn a fruit too ripe into a delight for the little ones. Because as I said, all we have to do is be creative and eager to save a few more foods from the fridge.
Let's think, first of all, that a much overcooked banana is not the same as a product whose expiration date has expired or as a piece of meat that no longer looks as it should.
Careful! I'm not saying we have to reuse all food, but I urge you to be more careful before giving up certain foods in the fridge or pantry.
What are the benefits of very ripe bananas (with black spots on the skin)
Before I share the recipes with you, I will leave below some of the benefits of eating ripe bananas.
According to specialists, very well ripened bananas:
- Helps maintain a constant level of high blood pressure
- They can strengthen the immune system
- Stimulates brain activity
Not many people know that once black spots appear on banana peels, the fruit becomes a bomb of vitamins and nutrients that work wonders for the body's health. Recent research by Japanese doctors has found that highly ripe bananas also have an anticancer effect.
And all this is just one of the reasons why I turn every banana I used to throw away, into a delicious meal for dwarfs.
Nutrient levels may increase or decrease when a fruit ripens too hard. In the case of bananas, the level of antioxidants increases when they become very ripe.
In addition, bananas are friendly to the digestive system. A fruit contains, on average, three grams of fiber. Fiber stimulates the proper functioning of the intestinal tract. They also contain a significant amount of potassium, which helps to remove excess water from the tissues. In other words, bananas help us in the fight against fluid retention.
Today I propose three ideas for delicious recipes that the little ones will surely fall in love with!
3 quick recipes from ripe bananas
Here's how we managed to turn blackened bananas from the fruit bowl into delicious and, very importantly, healthy snacks for the little ones.
For muffins , we need:
- 2 ripe bananas
- 150 grams of flour (white, wholemeal or oatmeal)
- 80 grams of butter
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- Vanilla sugar
- 70 ml of maple syrup
- 2 eggs
For homemade ice cream we need:
- frozen mango and cut into cubes
- very well cooked banana
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk, for the texture of the ice cream.
For smoothies we need:
- berries (raspberries, strawberries)
- ripe banana
- a few tablespoons of coconut milk
- a few tablespoons of oatmeal
- Chia seeds
I think it only takes a little creativity when it comes to reusing food items in the kitchen. Baked bananas can also be used in the composition of pancakes, in the famous banana bread or placed in slices on a sponge cake - maybe even next to other sweet fruits.
And very ripe bananas are a simple example when it comes to foods that we can process without too much effort. It is amazing, however, in the case of these fruits, how many are the beneficial effects on health.
By doing so, we take small steps to stop food waste. In addition, we know very well that the power of example is very important in the relationship with the little ones. Children often do what they see. And they'll think twice before throwing food. A child who understands today is the responsible adult of tomorrow.

Method of preparation
The first time I take the bananas, they are peeled and passed with a fork. Put the butter in a bowl, which is at room temperature, with a fat of over 80%, over which the sugar is added. The two products are mixed well and then add the eggs, one by one. Over all this composition add the bananas, which have been pressed before.

After the composition is well mixed, transfer to a cake pan and place in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for one hour. After the banana cake cools, it can be sliced and eaten. Good appetite!
