Nature’s Perfect Treat: Bananas 10 Ways

If you recall, bananas made it to my top 5 favorite foods list I posted recently.  And I’m going to just say it: bananas are by far my most favorite food.    

My counter top alone says it all.  You know how most families buy one bunch at a time.  Well that just won’t fly in our house.  I buy three at a time (mind you there are just two people living in our house) and will go to the store just for bananas when we run out.  The hubby claims I’m addicted.  That’s probably not far from the truth.

So I had this conversation with hubby the other day.  I argued that bananas are nature’s perfect treat.  They’re sweet, healthy and oh so delicious.  Great for breakfast, as a snack and for dessert.  They are delicious all on their own, but pair wonderfully with so many other foods and preparations too!  You don’t need any utensils or have to cook them before eating and their peels keep them safe and sturdy for on the go travels.  Perfect.

Here are my top 10 favorite ways to eat bananas, in no particular order, since they all rock.
