Bananas are important to our daily life. All the potassium, natural vitamins, and nutrients in it are so good for the heart, muscles, and digestive system. Here are some snack recipes you can enjoy with bananas.
1. Panfried cinnamon bananas

You can add a little butter into the pan while it is heating and let it melt before you add in the banana rounds to get a good taste of butter.

5. Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
This whole Yummy Ice Cream is just sweet, ripe frozen bananas that have been smoothed out in the blender with a little vanilla, a little cinnamon, and a good dollop of peanut butter creaminess.
Recently I’ve enjoyed it and the tase is so great, so today I’d like to share the recipe of this creamy banana dessert-ness.
3 large and ripe bananas
3 tablespoons of natural peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a super teeny-tiny dash of cinnamon
roasted peanuts as topping
Cut the bananas into small chunks and freeze for at least 1-2 hours to make them solid. Transfer the bananas to a strong blender and blend until smooth and creamy. The sound will be very loud and intense since the bananas are frozen. Within a few minutes, you will see a thick, creamy ice-creamy mixture in the blender.
Add the peanut butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, sea salt, and anything else you might like in there. Blend quickly to stir the ingredients all together then pour them into a glass. Top with additional peanut butter and crushed roasted peanuts.
