    • Don't Toss Those Ripe Bananas!

      You'll never feel guilty for trashing a browning banana again. We've got 10 a-peel-ing ways to enjoy the fruit even past its prime.

    • #1: Make Ice Cream Creamier

      You know what your ice cream needs? More creaminess. Enter ripe bananas. Adding a few ripe bananas to this butter pecan ice cream gives it the velvety texture you want.

    • #2: Fill Your French Toast

      Start your day oh, so right with a scoop of mashed ripe banana in your French toast. Mix it with cream cheese and top the toast with sugared nuts for -- dare we say -- the best breakfast ever. 

    • #3: Blend with Berries for Soup

      Chilled soup (aka the poshest side dish on the planet) is just begging for smooth ripe bananas. Make this sweet and spicy soup by blending the banana with raspberries and minced jalapenos.

    • #4: Add to Cupcake Batter

      It's not every day that a banana, sweet potato, and pineapple walk into a kitchen and come out as a cupcake. Our unconventional cupcake batter is totally delicious, thanks to that leftover ripe banana and warm spices like cinnamon and cloves.

    • #5: Make Grilled Kabobs

      Bananas on the dinner menu? Yes, please. Smoky and sweet grilled fruit kabobs make a smashing side for savory fish.

    • #6: Moisten Cake Batter

      If you have five ripe bananas to use up, it might be time to make a giant cake. Despite its sprinkled good looks, the real star of this cake is the fruit-filled batter: Bananas and pineapple make ultra-moist and naturally sweet cake.

    • #7: Sweeten Bread Pudding

      Take a sad banana and make it a masterpiece. Pair it with golden raisins and swirly cinnamon bagels for the ultimate brunch treat.

    • #8: Power Your Smoothie

      If you dream in smoothies, try this creamy creation: Banana, avocado, and Greek yogurt make a healthy, power-packed trio that's a great option for breakfast or lunch.

      #9: Transform the Banana Split

      Rather than shamefully tossing those ripe bananas, celebrate them with a showstopping cake -- it's so much tastier this way. Slather soft banana cake with cream cheese and strawberry filling. Then roll it up and watch it disappear.

      #10: Chop Into Fruit Salsa

      Tomato salsa is so last summer. For dressing up fish fillets, we're bananas about refreshing fruit salsa that's chock-full of bananas. A sassy spark of lime makes the fish topper truly divine.
