GO BANANAS -


BANANA




Thought to be native to South-East Asia, the banana is one of the oldest known fruits. There are hundreds of types of bananas, but in Australia the most common varieties are the cavendish and the lady finger.
High in natural fruit sugars, vitamins B6 and C, and potassium, this fat-free fruit is a great high-energy snack due to its glycemic index 
Storing
Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Keep bananas away from avocados, apples and other fruits that release ethylene gas, which accelerates ripening.

Cooking

Bananas are usually eaten raw, but they can also be fried and served with ice-cream, or mashed and added to cakes. Great with cream, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, chocolate and yoghurt.
They are normally the base for many Smoothies. Check out Smoothies section in this blog to find some great and easy to make Healthy Banana Smoothies
