Yes, We Have No Bananas

I lie, mentira, en Costa Rica tenemos muchos bananos. in Costa Rica we do have bananas. many many many.

Singularly challenging is whether or not we can eat them all. The answer lies in how many different things can you make with bananas. If you have any suggestions, please (please) add them in the comments below. El reto es, podemos comer a todos? La respuesta está en la cantidad de cosas diferentes se puede hacer con bananos. Si usted tiene alguna sugerencia, por favor (por favor) incluyelos en los comentarios a continuación.

Of course eating them raw, freshly picked from the tree works every time. Por supesto, puedo comerlos crudo…

And my all time favorite is the banana milk shake (batidos!!!!!!!!!!!) Naturally sweet, banana drinks require very little sugar. Bananas in a blender with any other fruit is simply delicious. The best, best best version is the Mono Loco using bananas (natch), milk, coffee, sugar, and chocolate. Oh. My. God, so good. Y mi favorito de todos los tiempo es el batido de banano! Los bananos en la licuadora con cualquier otra fruta es simplemente delicioso. Lo mejor, su mejor versión es la mejor del Mono Loco con bananos (naturalmente), leche, café, azúcar y chocolate. Oh. Mi. Dios, tan bueno. Bueno, the LIST (la lista) of other Banana Foods I can think of:

  • Banana bread;

  • bananas in cereal;

  • banana fritters;

Here it is also perfectly acceptable to serve bananas as

  • fried bananas (served alongside breakfast, lunch or dinner);

  • in soup;

  • on ice cream; and

  • as ice cream

What ideas can you share for how we can use all the bananas ripening on our property? Cual otras ideas tiene para mi?!?! rOriginally published March 17, 2012

karen Banana Pancakes!

Jill Banana Chocolate Chip Bread Cooked at low heat for a very long time. Fabulous, moist and chocolate-y! 3 very ripe bananas 1 c sugar 3 tsp baking soda (yes, lots) dash salt 2 eggs 1/4 C oil 1 1/2 C flour (can mix white and whole wheat) 1/2 C buttermilk or sour milk or even yogurt 1/2 C chocolate chips (or more) Easiest in the food processor. Puree the bananas. Add sugar, soda, salt. Process or stir. Process/beat in eggs and oil. Add flour then buttermilk and stir/process till smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Use a 9×5 loaf pan, greased or lined with parchment paper. Pour in the batter. Bake at 275 for 2 1/2 hours or until loaf tests done. Yes, really that long. Enjoy.

karen OMG, that sounds soooooo delicious. And now I have something marvellous to take when I visit new friends homes! Thanks Jill!!!!! I’m going to make dozens!

Shayni How about Banana splits!! Yum Yum, or this…. Frozen chocolate covered bananas.
