Banana has been a big part of my breakfast intake for many years!
To have breakfast has been a nightmare for me but as always necesery to get energi to body and brain to work for a few more hours. I have talked to many who have the same problem and the question is ... How do I do?
What shall I eat that goes fast to do and not " logs " themselves in the throat?? That's how it feels in the morning when I have to have breakfast, it's not possible for me to swallow the food
I started with smoothies, it allso works to prepare the night before so I can grab it when I run on my way out.
Banana is the base of my smoothie if I don´t instead shoose a green smoothie ...
Feels easier for me to swallow and I now I´ve got something to work on in the morning.
I am often told... You should be careful about eating too much Banana... too much carbohydrates and protein.
Yes thats true but it´s the same with everything .. Not to much and not to little... and a modern dietitian wouldn't recommend banana if you need to cut down on carbohydrates.
But i will tell you more about why I eat banana.
The banana that we eat (dessert banana) is one of the genus Musa and is a hybrid of several different species from the banana genus. Scientifically, this dessert banana has ended up in the Musa group. There are 1000 different types of banana seedlings all over the world, the majority of these banana seedlings are not eatable. The shell on the banana can be as we know yellow, but also there are purple, pink and red when the fruit is ripe.
As children, we learn that the banana is a fruit... but botanically, I have been told that the banana should be a berry... ??!

When I Make My Own Ice Cream
I freeze bananas in slices that are always the base of the ice cream. When it's time, I take slices from 2 bananas from the freezer and frozen berries that I want 30 min before manufacture because it has to defrost a little bit before.
I put everything in a larger bowl, (it will splatter) and run with my blender to the consistency I want. Then put the ice cream in a smaller bowl and just enjoys... yummie it´s very tasty!
Banana provides heart health!!
