Expert Tips

  • Different stages of ripeness in bananas work best in this recipe. Use firm bananas for slices and ripe bananas for mashing.
  • To ripen bananas quickly, place them in a paper bag at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.
  • For extra indulgence, serve with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
