Banana Ice Cream

Techincally this isn't an ice cream. There are neither egg yolks nor cream. There's no churning either. There is, however, tons of flavor without tons of calories and fat. You only need three ingredients, frozen overripe bananas being one of them, and a food processor and you'll have in your hands an ice creamy treat that'll make you go bananas over the taste!

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that its delicious, makes good use of your overripe bananas, and its a no bake recipe. Could it get any easier?

Banana Bread

Thinkstock

Banana bread is the bread nature intended us to have. Soft, moist, and sweet, loaves and muffins made from bananas remind us of whats right with the world!

Banana and Chocolate Hazelnut Wontons

Thinkstock

Chocolate hazelnut spreads mixed with banana is a tried-and-true combination, but when paired with the crunchy texture and savory flavor of a wonton wrapper like in this recipe, they become so much more.

23 Overripe Banana Recipes To Use Up That Brown Bunch

That bunch of bananas on your counter turning brown awfully quick? Don't panic! Ripe and overripe bananas (which have ever-softening peels covered in an ever-increasing number of brown spots) are extra sweet&mdashand there are about a million and one ways to use them.

Before I get carried away with banana bread, nice cream, and other yummy overripe banana recipes, know this: As long as the spots on a banana's peel are more brown than black, the banana itself has an off-white or very light-brown color, and the flesh still has a uniform texture (read: not too gooey), it's totally fine to eat, according to nutritionist Kelly Jones, RD.

&ldquoIn fact, overripe bananas actually contain more antioxidants than when they are still somewhat green or just ripe,&rdquo she says. (Umm, sold.)

If you don't feel like firing up the oven, you can freeze ripe and overripe bananas to use in smoothies, banana nice cream, and snack bites later. The soft, sweet, spotty fruit also works wonders in oatmeal (especially with PB) and all sorts of baked goods, too, though. &ldquoIn sweet recipes, bananas offer more natural sweetness, allowing you to reduce&mdashor even eliminate&mdashany added sugar,&rdquo Jones says.

Another hack for your naners: They often work well as a replacement for butter or eggs, which basically makes them any vegan's baking BFF.

Still not sure exactly how to put that browning bunch to good use? Treat yourself to one of these 23 overripe banana recipes.
