Dehydrating bananas is a quick and easy way to make great banana chips for
on-the-go munching. When re-hydrated: voila! banana pudding! It's a great way to use up bananas as we all know they tend to
turn brown so fast! Check out this fantastic recipe for Banana Cinnamon Rolls that are very healthy and pretty much "fat free."
But for those bananas that are "too far gone", consider using them in smoothies – the riper, the better!

OK, off we go to grab a bunch – or two – and when you're ready, make sure to chill your bananas first as that makes them much easier to slice without them going all mushy!
