Use Those Over Ripe Bananas!

This Sparked Me!

I personally hate to eat over ripe bananas. I either freeze them (without the peel) and I can use them in a smoothie! Or use them to make banana bread!

I freeze the bananas in a zip lock bag.

    I totally agree with everyone. I freeze bananas all the time and make awesome smoothies with 1 banana, 1 cup milk, and 1 cup blueberries. This is a perfect drink within 30minutes after exercise which is the only time I would want to spike my blood sugar level for muscle growth. It is scientifically proven that sugar will prep your body for the fastest muscle growth possible. I think timing and moderation should be considered, but I fully support and love bananas.

    Bananas contain three natural sugars, namely, sucrose, fructose and glucose

Overripe bananas are just loads of sugar...The longer your bananas sit around, the more likely they will be to give you a headache and the sugar increases in the banana. To prevent this, consume them while they are still slightly green.

I don't touch bananas they surge my blood sugar levels....
