Bananas are a great source of potassium and are naturally free of cholesterol. However, they are often disposed of when considered too ripe – a pity, as even overly ripe bananas have massive potential.

Ruan De Villiers, Food Lover’s Market Longbeach store manager, has some tips to prevent bananas from ripening too soon and on how to re-purpose bananas:

. Place bananas in the fridge. This slows the ripening process. The skin will turn brown but it will still be edible.

. Overly ripe bananas are great for puddings, banana bread and healthy smoothies. As bananas are free of fat and cholesterol, mashed bananas are ideal as a replacement for oils used when baking.

. Bananas also provide a healthy balance of nutrients and fluids, which makes it ideal as a daily fruit.
