Serving Ideas

There are so many things you can do with bananas! Whole as a snack or for breakfast is always a great choice, but you can slice them to have with toast spread with jam, peanut butter or even hazelnut-chocolate.

They make a great addition to pancakes and crepes as well.

As an after school snack, kids love banana “roll-ups”. Take a tortilla and thinly spread your nut butter of choice in the middle with strawberry jam. Then place a whole, peeled banana on it, and roll up like an enchilada. Cut into 1” pieces and serve! You may need a toothpick to hold it in place, but it’s not necessary.

Bananas are also great for making into soft-serve ice cream, or garnishing cakes or pies.
