Last Second Banana Rescue: You Can Do These 4 Things To Them

We agree: throwing food away is not an option. There MUST be ways to make something out of them. Fruit and vegetables, in particular, spoil quickly and nothing hurts as much as putting a whole bunch in the organic waste bin. So we thought of a few things you can do with bananas that are just too ripe to be eaten raw. You can still use overripe, almost black bananas wonderfully. We show you how:

1. Freeze and later prepare ice cream or smoothies

If you have a bit of space in the freezer, you have a clear advantage. You should chop up overripe fruits and vegetables and simply freeze them. This is the easiest way to escape the compost bin. This is how it works: Peel the bananas, tear them apart in the middle (in two parts) and store them in a suitable freezer bag or (even better) a reusable box (IKEA also has some made of glass). To use ice cream or smoothies, simply take them out of the freezer, let thaw for a few minutes and puree with a liquid.

For the banana ice cream, puree 1 to 2 bananas with a little almond milk or cow's milk. Don't take too much fluids! Banana milk tastes just as wonderful with frozen bananas - nice and cool!

2. Face mask with bananas

Bananas are real moisturizers. Mixed with a little honey and grated almonds, they make a perfect face mask. Here's how it works: To do this, pound a banana, add about two tablespoons of honey and two tablespoons of ground almonds. The honey has an antibacterial effect, the almonds provide a gentle peeling. Apply to cleansed skin, allow to soak in for about 20 minutes and rinse well with lukewarm water. Your skin will feel as soft as a baby's bottom! You can find more DIY masks here.

3. Breakfast cookies with bananas

Homemade breakfast biscuits are not only delicious and healthy, they are also wonderful to take away. For 4 servings (about 12 biscuits) you put two overripe bananas with two handfuls of oat flakes in the food processor and puree the whole thing into a creamy dough. If you like, you can add cocoa nibs. Then brush the baking paper with a little (coconut) oil and divide the mixture with a tablespoon and press firmly. Bake at 160 degrees hot air for about 10 to 15 minutes. If you want, you can pimp the banana batter with desiccated coconut or dates.

4. Oatmeal pancakes with bananas

The healthy alternative to the classic pancake! All you need for the vegan pancakes are oatmeal, ripe bananas, almond milk, baking powder and coconut oil. Here's how it works: Grind the oatmeal into oatmeal in a blender and then mix it with the baking powder in a bowl. Now puree the almond milk with the two bananas and mix with a pinch of salt, a little cinnamon and a little vanilla. Then add to the oatmeal and baking powder and mix well. Let the dough soak for about ten minutes. Next, heat coconut oil in a pan, set the pan to medium temperature. You can now bake small pancakes from the batter. Bon Appetit!
