Bananas are high in potassium, and are a great portable snack. They also have lots of other uses that go way beyond food.
Can’t get that pesky splinter out?
Press a banana peel onto the affected area and the nutrients will help ease the splinter out.
Take a shine to it:
Rub the inside of a banana peel onto silver or leather in place of store bought toxic cleaners, and buff with a clean cloth.
Brighten your smile:
Bananas are helpful in removing stains from your teeth. Massage your teeth with the inside of the banana peel for several minutes at a time, 3 times per week and watch the sparkle come back to your smile.
Want the peels and don’t want to waste the fruit?
Freeze the bananas and puree them in the blender for a soft serve ice cream alternative. Or dip them in chocolate first and enjoy them as a frozen treat.
