Traditional Southern Banana Pudding is quite possibly the most delicious dessert on the planet. However, between the sugar, butter, and chemical crackers (vanilla wafers) you’re asking for medical problems y eating this one. If you’re not into killing yourself slowly, you could always go for my favorite healthy breakfast/dessert, “banana nice cream.” You can find some “nice cream” recipes here. If you’ve had enough “nice cream,” and want something a little naughty that may put you to sleep, but won’t put you in a coma, I’ve got the perfect recipe for your overripe bananas!
Banana Fritters are a popular dish all over the world. If you’ve ever been to a Brazilian Churrascaria, they typically have a wide variety of meat, a couple sides, and bananas fritas (fried bananas) for dessert. East African “zitumbuwa” combines overripe bananas with hot chili sauce, or a little diced onion to give it a savory kick. In Haiti, “beyens” are served with cinnamon and vanilla to compliment to already sweet, overripe bananas.
