25 Wonderful Uses of Bananas

Banana is among one of the most important fruit crops of the world. It is grown in tropical regions of the world. It is cherished worldwide for its flavor, nutritional value, and availability throughout the year. They are native to Southeast Asia and grown in many of the warmer areas of the world. If you are wondering why, one should eat a banana. Then, here we have a whole bucket of information for you.

Origin of Banana

Bananas are thought to have been cultivated in Southeast Asia. After the discovery of America, bananas were brought from the Canary Islands to the New World. Their cultivation increased until bananas became a staple foodstuff in many regions, and in the 19th century, they began to appear in the markets of the United States. However, Cavendish bananas are by far the most common variety imported by non-tropical countries, which account for about 85 per cent of all banana cultivation worldwide.

Banana plants thrive naturally on deep, loose, well-drained soils in humid tropical climates, and they are grown successfully under irrigation in such semi-arid regions as southern Jamaica. The first crop matures within 10 to 15 months, and the fruit production is more or less continuous. Desirable commercial bunches of bananas consist of nine hands or more and weigh 22–65 kg. About three hundred or more bunches are produced annually on one acre of land and harvested before they fully ripen on the plant.

What are the nutritional benefits of bananas?

Is eating bananas beneficial for you? If the answer is Yes! A wide variety of health benefits are associated with the curvy yellow fruit. Bananas are high in pectin and potassium and are a form of fibre. They are also a way to get magnesium and vitamins C and B6.

Bananas are rich in antioxidants, which can protect from free radicals of sunlight that can harm your skin. Bananas are also good for your heart. They contain potassium, a mineral and an electrolyte, which carries a small electric charge. As such, potassium sends an electric signal to nerve cells that keep the heart beating and muscles contracting; it maintains a healthy water balance in your cells.

In 2020, according to a preliminary report by the United Nations, they observed bananas provide a slew of health benefits and are one of the world’s most popular fruits. Bananas are rich in fibre, which can help keep you regular. One banana can provide nearly 10% of your daily fibre requirement. In general, bananas are a great weight-loss food because they taste sweet and are filling, which helps curb cravings.

Some evidence suggests that moderate consumption of bananas may be protective against kidney cancer. Women eating four to six bananas a week halved their risk of developing kidney cancer. Bananas are not that rich in calcium, but they are still helpful in keeping bones strong. These are non-digestive carbohydrates that produce digestive-friendly probiotics and enhance the body’s ability to absorb calcium. 

What are the uses of bananas?

 Used as a Fertilizer

Bananas are a wonderful source of nutrients that can be used to fertilize the soil. Bananas contain high levels of potassium, phosphorus, and calcium. These essential nutrients encourage healthy plant growth, which is why feeding your plant with it is a great choice.

First, you’ll need to collect your banana peel. Once you have it, cut it into small pieces—the smaller, the better, because the tiny size will ensure quicker decomposition.

Afterwards, spread the peels on the soil around your plants; or, you can bury the peels in the soil, and this would also be helpful to the soil. As they decompose, they release nutrients into the ground and feed your plants through their roots. Now, water the area where you placed the peels. Water will help the decomposition process go faster. A banana peel decomposes readily, releasing vital nutrients into the soil.

One thing to keep in mind is always keep your banana peels small. Smaller pieces easily decompose. Add organic materials, such as dried leaves, yard waste, and kitchen scraps, to the peels. Mix all the ingredients in your compost pile, and make sure you add some water to keep the mix moist but not wet. Every few weeks, turn the compost to introduce air, which enhances the decomposition process.

It can take several weeks or months for composting to take place. You can use your compost when it is ready, simply mix it into the soil.

Use as a first aid

Banana peel can be used as a first aid because of the presence of antioxidants, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. You can apply the peel against poison ivy rash, sunburn, or bug bite for instant relief from itch. Also, frozen banana peels may help alleviate headache pain or draw out splinters when placed on the affected area.

Reducing Wrinkles

Banana is among the most easily available kitchen ingredients that work wonders for your skin. The amount of silica in bananas can help increase collagen production, the natural proteins that help keep skin hydrated and smooth. It contains nutrients like potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and traces of vitamin A. It helps in the restoration of lost collagen via silica. Thus, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Making a face mask

Banana peel can be beneficial for your skin’s health because of the presence of various vitamins and electrolytes. Both banana peel and cornstarch have many beauty benefits. Banana, one of the most popular fruits, is rich sources of potassium and also contains Vitamin C and B6.

How to make a banana peel face mask?

  • First, take a banana and peel it.
  • Then, take the banana peel and cut it into small pieces.
  • Take a pan and add a cup of water.
  • Add the pieces of banana peel to the pan.
  • After that, add a tablespoon of rice to the pan.
  • Let the ingredients boil for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Once the ingredients have boiled, switch off the flame and keep the pan aside.
  • After the ingredients have slightly cooled down, then, add them to your electric mixer-grinder.
  • Grind both the ingredients well until you get a smooth mixture.
  • Next, using a strainer, strain the mixture into a bowl. By following this step, you can easily remove the remaining chunks of ingredients that have not been ground.
  • In the bowl, add a tablespoon of cornstarch.
  • Then, add half a tablespoon of lemon juice.
  • Mix all the ingredients well.
  • Add one teaspoon of powdered milk.
  • Combine the ingredients well and pour the mixture into a jar.
  • Now, you can apply the face mask immediately or you can use it at your convenience by storing it in the refrigerator for a maximum of 7 days.

Use as a body scrub

Bananas may not be a fruit or ingredient you associate with facial scrubs or skincare in general, but you cannot neglect the fact that the skin loves it. Banana consists of high levels of antioxidants, which have an impact on the skin for achieving a healthy natural balance.

Ingredients for making the scrub:

  • ½ -1 ripe banana (depending on size)
  • 3 tbsp plain natural yogurt (Greek style yogurt may be used)
  • 2-3 squares chocolate (dark is best)
  • 1 tbsp salt (not too coarse)

Instructions:

  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave safe bowl. It is only a few squares, so melt gently in order not to burn it. Try 10-15 second intervals checking it. When fully melted remove from microwave.
  • Add the yogurt and mix well.
  • Mash the banana in the other bowl.
  • Don’t over mash or it will be too runny in consistency.
  • When bananas are ready, add the chocolate mix and stir to a smooth consistency.
  • Add the salt and gently mix it in.

How to use:

Apply to a cleansed face and neck in small circular movements, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10 minutes and remove with warm water. Splash with cold water and pat the skin dry.

Polishing your silverware

There are a few all-natural recipes for cleaning silver, but this is my preferred method for jewelry. It is great for small and delicate pieces but won’t work as well on heavily tarnished large pieces like silverware or dishware.

Blend: Toss a few banana peels in the blender with just a bit of water to make a paste. It won’t be pretty, but it will work!

Scrub: With a soft cloth or toothbrush, begin to work the paste around your silver piece.

Wash: Dip the silver into a water bath and work off any remaining paste. Pat dry with a clean cloth.

Reduces Puffiness

Banana Peel is rich in antioxidants, fibre, fatty acids, and several minerals such as iron, potassium, and zinc, which can help brighten your skin and reduce wrinkles. It can also help in curing skin inflammation and even act as a moisturizer, thus hydrating your skin. Bananas or banana peels combined with milk, cornstarch, or lime juice can reduce inflammation and sebum (oil) that may add to the formation of acne. It can also work well on lightening age spots and acne scars.

Hair Mask

Banana is an excellent source of vitamins, magnesium, potassium, and silicon. Silicon compounds (like silica) strengthen the cuticle layer of hair by aligning the tile like components of the outer layer. This provides hair protection from damage and makes the hair shine. It also conditions your mane, improving hair hydration, and replenishes damaged hair endings, making your tresses soft and bouncy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk

Instructions:

  1. Mash the banana in a bowl.
  2. Add the coconut oil and coconut milk, and mix the ingredients into a creamy paste.

How to apply:

  • Make sure to cover your entire scalp and all your hair.
  • Put on a shower cap and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with water and shampoo it as usual.

Fruit Smoothie

A banana smoothie is a delicious and nutritious drink that can be made in a few minutes with simple ingredients. Some popular banana smoothie combinations are honey-banana, berry-banana, chocolate-banana, and almond-banana.

Banana Bread

What is the great way to make a perfect banana bread? The only fine way is to make your bread using ripe bananas. Bananas that are soft and have lots of small black & brown spots on the yellow banana peel. Hard unripe green, or yellow bananas have too much starch and are not very appetizing. In contrast, ripe bananas are sweeter, softer, and have much more delicious banana flavour.

 Banana peel Tea

Banana tea is made by boiling a whole banana in hot water, removing it, and drinking the remaining liquid. Most people drink this banana-infused tea with a dash of cinnamon or honey to improve its flavour. Finally, it’s most commonly enjoyed at night to aid sleep. It provides antioxidants, potassium, and magnesium, which may support heart health, aid sleep, and prevent bloating.

  • Fill a pot with 2–3 cups (500–750 ml) of water and bring it to a boil.
  • Gently rinse a whole banana under running water to remove dirt and debris.

  5. Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the butter, vanilla extract and salt.
  6. Pour the pudding through a sieve or fine mesh strainer into a container, to remove any lumps and make it silky smooth.
  7. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top (to prevent a skin from forming on it). Refrigerate for an hour or more, until chilled. Stir well once chilled.
  8. To assemble the banana pudding, use a 9-inch square pan, a large bowl, trifle dish or individual dishes.
  9. Line the bottom of the pan with vanilla wafers. Top with sliced bananas, then ½ of the pudding mixture. Repeat with another layer, and end with a final layer of wafers (whole or crushed into pieces).

Banana Ice cream

A creamy, tropical-scented ice cream that requires no ice cream maker or ingredients other than the blackening fruit on your countertop. When you’ve got ripe bananas, this is one of the best ways to use them!

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe peeled bananas
  • 1 tablespoon milk of choice or water
  • Mix ins: mini chocolate chips or chunks, peanut butter, Nutella swirl, cookie dough, etc

Instructions:

  1. Slice the bananas into 1/2-inch rounds, then freeze them on a baking sheet for 3 hours.
  2. Place the bananas in a food processor and process until smooth, stopping and scraping the bowl as necessary. It will take a while for the bananas to become fully smooth, so keep stopping and scraping until it comes together. It’s easiest to add 1 tablespoon milk of choice or water to help things blend, or you can wait a few minutes for the bananas to thaw a bit. Taste, and if you’d like it a bit sweeter you can add a few teaspoons of sugar or honey and blend again.
  3. Eat immediately, or freeze up to 2 hours for an even more scoopable texture. Keep in mind the ice cream is best the day it is made. If you store overnight, the ice cream becomes very icy: make sure to allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.

Banana pancakes

Banana Oatmeal

Oats are whole grain and a great source of complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. The soluble fiber from oatmeal, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oatmeal combines with sweetness of banana. An appetizing meal to start your day with.

Instructions:

  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup milk of your choice
  • 2/3 cup water I like my oats a bit liquid – cut back to 1/2 a cup if you don’t
  • 1/2 banana very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract stirred in at end

Ingredients:

  • Start by combining rolled oats, water, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Slice a banana into VERY thin pieces, leaving just a few bigger chunks.
  • Walk away for a few minutes while the oatmeal heats.
  • Once it begins to steam or bubble, stir vigorously at times to “whip” the banana into the oats. The oats will take about 5 minutes on medium heat from start to finish to fully absorb the liquid. They’re done when they reach your desired consistency!
  • Stir in vanilla (and often pumpkin or cottage cheese) and pour into your bowl.
  • Add any toppings you like, such as almond or peanut butter dollops, nuts, granola, coconut, crumbled granola bars, or trail mix – with dark chocolate chips! Or check out all the combos listed below.

 Polishing Shoes

Banana peels are excellent at polishing leather. If this sounds like some kind of messy, questionable trick, it might help to know that there is an alternative to shoe polish. Bananas, as we know, are naturally filled with potassium. Surprisingly, potassium happens to be a key ingredient in commercial shoe polish to clean and shine leather!

It is observed that the natural oils and potassium in the banana soak into and nourish the leather, helping shoes last longer. Using banana peels to polish your shoes is easy — and maybe even less work than scrounging around for a tin of actual polish.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is essentially the process of bleaching teeth to make them brighter. Rubbing a banana peel on your teeth works as an exfoliator to help remove surface stains. The word of mouth is you rub the inside of the peel on your teeth before or after brushing for a few minutes and whiter pearly whites in a few weeks.

  • Take the banana peel or pulp to brush your teeth.
  • Slowly brush your teeth with it for 2 to 3 minutes. Brushing your teeth in a circular motion can result better.
  • Rinse and gargle with lukewarm water.
  • Repeating this procedure for several times in a week can help you get a visible whitening of teeth.

 Ripening an avocado

Ripe bananas release a lot of ethylene, the hormone that triggers ripening in mature fruit, so placing one in a closed paper bag with your under-ripe avocados will speed up the process. First, fruits with a dark green to nearly black skin colour signal a ripe avocado. Second, look out for the skin’s texture — ripe avocados should be a bit rough and bumpy on the outside. Third, if the avocado gives when gentle pressure is applied, it should be perfect when sliced open.
