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!
