Bananas are one of those fruits that seems to be able to do it all. They are a staple in most kitchens, and for a good reason. They're versatile, affordable, and can be used in sweet and savory dishes. You can eat them plain, put them in a smoothie, bake with them, or even fry them up.

Bananas are loaded with natural sugars and vitamins; they are also known for their serotonin-producing abilities and can elevate one's mood almost as well as chocolate!

If you are planning your next grocery list, make sure to include bananas. It's always better to get them when they are still not fully ripened. You have plenty of time to use them in one of these recipes or enjoy a banana as a healthy snack.

There is another great quality bananas possess that you might not have known about. Bananas release ethene - a special gas that helps fruit around them ripen much faster.

So if you have some hard avocados and can't wait to make some guacamole, just place some bananas next to them, and it will speed up the ripening process!
