This is just one of the cake recipes, and no-bake treats you can use bananas in. Bananas are one of the most versatile fruits in the kitchen. You can use bananas fresh or frozen depending on the recipe that you make. There are plenty of tips for getting the most out of bananas, so that they never go to waste, along with tips for ripening them quicker. The best way to ripen bananas quickly ripen for eating or slicing is using a paper bag. If you add one or two well-ripened bananas or apples to the unripe bananas in the brown paper bag, the process will go much more quickly. The reason for this is the ethylene gases from the ripened fruit which will help hasten the ripening. The bananas should be ripe enough to eat in about a day or two. For banana bread recipes or cake recipes, put the unpeeled bananas on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake the bananas at 350° F for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the bananas are completely blackened. Let the bananas cool, scoop the banana from the banana peel, and mash for banana bread recipes or cake recipes. The microwave oven is another way you can ripen bananas for banana bread recipes or other banana recipes. Peel the bananas and then place them on a microwave-safe plate or bowl. Then heat just until you hear them sizzling, about 30 seconds.

When you have some bananas sitting on the counter, and they are starting to overripen, instead of tossing them away when they start to get mushy, you can freeze them for future dessert recipes. Freeze bananas to use later in recipes such as ice cream, muffins, smoothies, pancakes, and dessert recipes. Frozen bananas can be used in a variety of baked recipes. Frozen bananas give smoothie recipes a rich, milkshake-like texture, and bring a good dose of potassium and other nutrients to recipe. It is best to remove the banana skin, then slice the bananas. You'll want to lay the bananas on a tray lined with parchment paper and freeze. Then take the frozen bananas and put them in a freezer bags, plastic containers or non-plastic containers to use for later. You'll want to label and date the bags or containers. You can store frozen bananas in the freezer for up to 8 months. Frozen bananas are still safe to eat after that, but the quality starts to decline. You can use frozen bananas in a variety of dessert recipes; you can blend them straight out of the freezer with some milk or non-dairy alternative and a little yogurt or silken tofu. The frozen bananas will give the smoothie a great milkshake-like texture. You won't need to add the ice cubes when you use frozen bananas for smoothie recipes. You can also use frozen bananas to make banana cream pie, ice cream, and other dessert recipes.
