…we bought a 99¢ bag of overripe bananas from the discount shelf at our grocery store and it yielded 2 banana loaves, one pan of banana squares, one pan of banana nut bars and 4 banana smoothies (my single-serving smoothie recipe: cup of plain yogurt, touch of apple juice, mushy bananas, teaspoon of just peanuts peanut butter–liquify in a blender or “bullet”).
The kids helped in the kitchen, they especially enjoyed squashing the bananas for the baking recipes.
