How to Make Delicious Coconut Milk Banana Bread

I’m the kind of girl who really doesn’t like to waste food, but at the same time, I don’t always remember to count what I already have at home when I go grocery shopping.

How many times have I bought some bananas at the grocery store and, on my return, noticed that I had six ripe bananas left on the kitchen island? I’ve lost count. The solution?

Store your overripe bananas in the freezer and whip up this dairy-free recipe!

Bananas are exotic fruits that are grown in almost all tropical regions. They’re the perfect fruit for regaining strength after a workout or to cut hunger between meals effectively. Most of us prefer to eat bananas that have bright yellow skin.

It remains a common practice to throw out less attractive bananas, placing bananas among the fruits most often found in waste. An effective way to avoid waste with bananas is to put them in the freezer, where they can last up to three months and can be pulled out for baking.

Let’s see how we can utilize this yummy fruit to make coconut milk banana bread today. Can you say yum?
