Banana Recipe 3 - Healthy eating, Heathy Living

Updated on March 12, 2009

Healthy eating, healthy living

I was looking through at my hubpages and I was thinking whether to put up another topic on Banana Recipe. So eventually, I made up my mind. The following are the recipes that I found from various websites.

Tropical Energy Smoothie



2 TBS tahini

1 medium size ripe banana

1 cup low fat plain yogurt

1 - 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice

1 medium papaya




Scoop out meat from papaya with spoon blend with the rest of ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Brazilian Braised Chicken and Bananas


4 lbs. chicken thighs and legs (attached)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt, milled pepper
3 Tbs. oil
1 medium onion, chopped
6 plum tomatoes, seeded, chopped
Pinch of sugar
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
3 Tbs. butter
6 firm-ripe bananas, halved lengthwise
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Rub it all over with lemon juice and sprinkle well with salt and pepper. In a deep, heavy-bottomed skillet or Dutch oven with a lid, heat the oil over medium heat. Brown chicken on all sides until golden brown. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Add the onion, tomatoes and sugar to pan and cook, stirring, until soft. Return chicken pieces to pan, add the wine and broth, and bring to a simmer. Lower heat and cover pan. Simmer until chicken is tender, about 45 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

In another large skillet, heat butter and saute banana halves on both sides until golden brown. Arrange bananas on top of the chicken in the skillet and sprinkle them with the Parmesan. Turn heat on low, cover and cook just until cheese melts. Use a large spatula to transfer the chicken with banana on top to plates.

Banana, Apple with Nutmeg and Cinnamon


2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
2 firm large bananas, sliced
2 tart green apples, peeled, cored, chunked
1/4 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Vegetable cooking spray
3 tbsp margarine, cut in small pieces
Frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed optional


Stir together bread crumbs, sugars and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in medium bowl, set aside. Combine bananas, apples, orange juice, remaining 1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl. Sprinkle 2 tbsp crumb mixture into bottom of 9-inch cake pan sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Evenly spread fruit mixture over crumbs. Dot margarine over fruit. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture evenly over fruit. Bake at 375 F, 30 to 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Cool slightly. Serve warm with topping, if desired.

Banana Orange Frost

1/2 cup Orange Juice
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 Banana sliced up
1 cup Orange Sherbert

Mix orange juice, milk, banana and orange sherbert in blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
