Top Banana

Bananas are a great fruit and can be very versatile. They are perfect for boosting energy levels and are often eaten after exercise or as a snack. However, sometimes bananas are left in the fruit bowl a little too long and become slightly brown. When bananas turn brown they may not taste as good, but don't throw them away as they can be used in so many delicious recipes.
