Bananas are one of the world’s most appealing fruits. As well as being ideal as a snack on the go, they can be used to make banana bread, banana muffins, banana cake, banana smoothie, banana shake, banana split, banana chips and much more.
How to keep
Remove from plastic bag and store at room temperature. If they are too green, place in brown paper bag, in a warm, dry area out of direct sunlight for a day or two with a ripe apple.
Bananas are a good source of vitamins C and B6. They are also a good source of cholesterol-lowering dietary fibre and a useful source of potassium. Bananas also provide complex carbohydrates as well as energy.
