We always have ripe bananas but I'm sick of banana bread, what else could I do?

Banana pancakes - mash one whole banana, whisk in two eggs. Dollop into a frying pan on a medium heat. These freeze so you can make loads.

Banana ice cream - freeze bananas then whizz in a blender. Add chocolate chips.

I use them in a crumble with other fruit, like apricots or blackberries.

Or mash them up in a bowl and a drop of cream and some sugar and eat - yum!

Or banana fritters. Slice, dip in batter and fry. Sprinkle with sugar and eat.

Or cook them in their skins on the BBQ.

Cut them open like a boat (crap explanation but can't think of a better one), stuff with chocolate and bung in the oven , or wrap in tinfoil and put into the fire if you have one.

How do you make the ice cream?

WanderingTrolley1 Sat 20-Feb-16 13:23:05

Make a smoothie!

Banana, a little ice cream and milk, some chopped nuts, a dash of vanilla essence, et voila!

Banana sandwiches for tea?

Or make banana sandwich with brioche, fry till golden, serve with a sprinkle of icing sugar for a cheap quick pudding for children.

Make Bananas Foster (needs vanilla icecream)

Bananas in custard, for a retro pudding [smie]

Serve sliced with lime as a curry side dish.

Allalonenow Sat 20-Feb-16 13:27:48

Add some Baileys to that smoothie for a real treat grin

Baked banana is lovely. Wrap with some butter and sugar in foil.

Banana flapjack is good smile

Literally just bananas vertigo freeze them in chunks, then once they are frozen blend them up. They turn into a smooth ice-cream-like dessert.

There are versions with yogurt which are more like real ice cream such as this one:

Mmm I don't know which to choose!
Do you have a recipe for the banana flapjack badger?

I love banana flavoured stuff, hate eating them fresh though. Think I will give all of these a go

Freeze them. Probably easier peeled in chunks but I have also just put them in the freezer. They make a really good snack - you have to wait for them to defrost a bit but don't wait too long as eventually they become black mush.

Blitz with milk = milkshake

Banana and avocado mashed together on brown bread sandwiches.

Tiredbadger Sat 20-Feb-16 21:42:42

I think I just found any flapjack recipe and added 2 mashed up bananas into the mixture before baking smile

Pinkheart5915 Tue 23-Feb-16 19:11:30

Banoffee pie yum!

Pinkheart5915 Tue 23-Feb-16 19:11:48

Flapjacks are good with bannana

Put them in sticky toffee pudding to make sticky banoffee pudding.
