    Smile Nanners!!!

    I got a whole big box of Bananas for FREE today so now I have to figure out what to do with all of them. I have a big bunch in the dehydrator now and going to save another bunch for more tomorrow. (This is the only way DD1 can eat them, Ill explain below)
    I have read some of the earlier posts and have gotten some great ideas...breads, cookies, boats....mmmmmmmmmm I love me some NANNERS!!! If you have any tried and trues that havent been listed in awhile that you would like to share I would be grateful.

    **Now to explain the earlier stated**
    DD1 is allergic to bananas, something about a latex connection. But anyway, she can eat them after they have been dehydrated and they do not bother her. I dont know why this is but she loves them and she can have them this way so we try to oblige.

    You can also mash them up and just freeze them in portions to be used in recipes later.

    Congrats on the windfall! It's great your daughter can have the dried bananas. Those are a nice treat!

    ~If you have a dehydrator can you use them in fruit purees for fruit leather?
    I like to peel and freeze my surplus bananas in a large container. I use them for banana bread and smoothies.~

    I love making banana pancakes, I learned this years ago with WIC, take ripened bananas mash them then stir them in the pancake batter, it makes the pancakes sweet where you do not need as much syrup.

    If you like soft serve ice cream try this:
    Peel and slice ripe bananas then freeze flat on a baking tray. When frozen solid, place a bunch in a food processor with a touch of milk or 1/2 n 1/2 and process until creamy like soft serve. Spoon into sundae dishes, top with chocolate syrup and walnuts (or whatever you like...butterscotch is yummy too!) and you have a wonderful low fat, non-dairy treat that is low in calories and full of potassium! You'll swear you're eating ice cream!!!
