Blend them up with other fruit & water for smoothies.
Chop up a banana, 2 medjool dates and stuff into celery sticks.
Banana muffins or bread is lovely and can be made low-fat.
Sliced banana with almond butter is one of my favorites.
Sliced banana's in oatmeal is a yummy breakfast.

Feeling like a little kid? Try my dh and grandkids favorite, cut that banana in half, put in a popsicle stick and then roll in melted chocolate and then lay on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and freeze, makes a great little dessert or a snack sitting in the backyard sun

I am surprised the site did not claim one could live for at least a hundred years by eating the fruit.

I don't know why but I cannot stand the things.

Saute them in butter with a bit of sugar and they are almost palatable.

Other than that I yield to other posters.

Let's take that a step further. Long, narrow, deep glass dish. One banana, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise in th ebottom of the dish. One scoop of vanilla ice cream. One scoop of strawberry ice cream. One scoop of chocolate ice cream. Two tablespoons of strawberry syrup on the chocolate ice cream. Two tablespoons of chocolate syrup on the vanilla ice cream. Two tablespoons of pineapple syrup on the strawberry ice cream. Cover completely with whipped cream. Sprinkle the whipped cream with a handful or two of crushed mixed nuts. One maraschino cherry right in the middle of it all!

David: Here is an address with many recipes using bananas.
Howstuffworks "Banana Recipes"
I love making crepes, and the filling them with apples, diced and sauteed in butter (just a little) and added some bananas in slices, sugar and cinnamon. OR banana and pineapple juice, or banana and orange juice.
Or if you find PLANTAINS ( a banana cousin, a little rougher ) let it go almost black, cut the ends and peel, put in a glass oven dish (I brush them with a little butter) and put in the oven for a more or less 30 minutes at 350, let them cook, and slice lenghtways ( do not separate the halves) and fill with cheese. I love the sweet of the planain with the salty taste of the cheese!
