Bananas Can Live Longer In Your Diet!


There are endless recipes and cooking ideas for making the most of your fresh fruit, but what do you do when your ripe produce, like bananas, become mushy after sitting on the counter for a little too long?

If you’re like most, you throw away the overripe fruits and veggies, but sustainable foods advocates say you shouldn’t turn towards the trash can.

Jenny McGruther, food educator and author, is all about cooking with simple ingredients that are flavorful, and says that overripe fruits fall into that category. You just have to know how to properly use them. Her trick? Overripe bananas and smoothies.

“You can absolutely use overripe, brown bananas in a smoothie. Overripe bananas can be sweeter than bananas that are just yellow. So you want to cut down on any additional sweetener you might add.”
