5 Dishes Naturally Sweetened With Bananas

Need a little sweetness without all the sugar? Bananas to the rescue.

The best way to start saying goodbye to those extra pounds is by saying goodbye to refined sugar. A simple carbohydrate, it’s one of the easiest things for your body to process into fat right away. But that doesn’t mean life needs to be dessert-less! Bananas are packed with nutrients and naturally sweet, so they can take the place of processed sugars in your desserts. Keep in mind that as soon as bananas are harvested, enzymes begin breaking down their starch into glucose. So the darker and softer the banana, the sweeter it will taste! Without further ado, here are five recipes featuring bananas that are so healthy and delicious, they’ll make you go—well, you know.
