Bananas are an almost perfect food. A large, ripe banana contains only about 100 calories; is very low in sodium, high in potassium and fiber, and a good source of Vitamins A, 86 and folic acid; is often the first solid food offered to infants; and is one of the last solid foods managed by the aged. Bananas are easy to digest and great for hypoallergenic diets. In short--an almost perfect food! Here are 50 great banana recipes including breakfast, shakes, sandwiches, main dishes and desserts.
