30 Bananas a Day!

Winter fruit blues starting early this year. Help with Banana ideas please?

Hi guys,

I'm already missing mangoes and unfortunately really don't care for dates much. In the US that leaves bananas in the winter for a staple. I'd love to hear some ideas on tastier ways to get those bananas down!

Please share your favorite bananas recipes/ideas here. I need could use some inspiration.

Thanks so much!

how you feel about Tanin?

when i first saw they were a 801010 ratio nut i was like go get some but then they were not appealing at all


studies have demonstrated that products containing chestnut tannins included at low dosages (0.15–0.2 %) in the diet can be beneficial.[18] Some studies suggest that chestnut tannins have been shown to have positive effects on silage quality in the round bale silages, in particular reducing NPNs (non protein nitrogen) in the lowest wilting level

tannins inhibit herbivore digestion by binding to consumed plant proteins and making them more difficult for animals to digest, and by interfering with protein absorption and digestive enzymes

Good to know, thanks

Yes, tannins are a concern. I haven't studied the subject, but I suspect that they would be a similar concern as oxalates in spinach, etc. In other words, I wouldn't be too concerned about eating relatively small amounts- about 20 % of daily calories-on a seasonal basis. Also, the tannins are found primarily in the skin and peel which I don't consume.

My first reaction to using liquid nitrogen to peel them is rather negative.

Yes, it's extreme, just thought it was interesting and coincidental to the chestnut mention.  I don't think I've got any objections to it as the nitro hits only the externals and makes such a huge difference in being able to shell them.  Have you ever tried shelling chestnuts?  It's unbelievably difficult!

i like to blend them without water, they are tastier and feel lighter in the stomach for me, first i mash them inside the blender and them pulse it till you get a smooth and creamy drink :)

ps don't blend for to long to avoid oxidation 

Yes, chestnuts are extremely difficult to peel that's why I don't eat the raw ones very much. What I eat are the cooked versions you can purchase cheaply in Chinese markets or even Dollar stores in Canada. I find them to be good travel food and high carb back ups when I am not as prepared as I should be with my raw food.

I never get sick of banana smoothies with a cup of blackberries and/or raspberries - absolute heaven.  Also I throw in 2 cups of greens.  I have at least one of these every day.

The store I shop at sells big bags of organic frozen mango and I like banana & frozen mango smoothies a lot.

if you added whizzed up dried mulberries to that cereal it would be like granola!

Persimmons are a nice alternative fruit that's in season now (at least in CA). Valencia oranges are in season too. Apples are always an option, and it's almost the best time of year for them now. My tips for bananas? Peel and freeze some in a gallon size ziplock bag, then make banana- berry smoothies using a few ripe bananas and a few frozen bananas for a well-rounded flavor and a luxurious temperature/thickness/consistency. For a snack, try dehydrating whole peeled bananas (tastes amazing!). Also, mash some super ripe bananas with some cinnamon for a great breakfast treat. (add a few frozen or fresh berries to that and mix it up with your spoon for variety).
