8 tasty banana recipes (that aren’t banana bread)

We love bananas here at the Healthy Mummy HQ. Frozen ones in a Healthy Mummy Smoothie (for extra creaminess), ripe ones in a muffin or banana bread for breakfast, even just sliced on some sourdough toast with some nut butter – bananas are one versatile fruit.

Lots of our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members tell us that they will often pick up a load of bananas when they’re on sale, peel, chop and freeze them to use in recipes later on.

We think that’s a fab idea and with that in mind, we bring you eight of the BEST banana recipes from the Healthy Mummy.  Pop these on your to-do list when you’ve got some bananas in the fruit bowl or freezer.
