Oh and as an awesome way to deal with bananas that are about to go bad... Freeze them and blend! You literally just slice the banana up, freeze the slices on wax paper, then food process them, scraping down the edges now and then and you will have ice cream. Seriously. No other ingredient needed, but it's great to add some cocoa powder and/or peanut butter!
Also, any time I find an ingredient not listed in the SparkPeople database (which is rare), I just google it and you can always find the nutrition facts for pretty much everything you can buy in a store. Then you just make sure you have the right calories... for example, sometimes I am looking at the nutrition facts on something (say Starbucks Greek Yogurt) and the entries are different from what I see in front of me... you can always enter it yourself or just google the information and add it to the database. Then enter it in the recipe calculator like someone on here said.

You can use the recipe calculator on SparkRecipes.com to enter the recipe and the amount of servings, then save it so you can add servings of that recipe to your Nutrition Tracker. (You can add it to our site, just make sure not to check the box to share the recipe.)

Hello, I have a lot of overripe bananas, so I need to make some stuff with them. I checked out the recipes on Sparkpeople, and while I found a couple promising ones I don't have all the ingredients for it right now. I only have $13 (poor college student), and the bananas will go bad before I get more money.)
I have this awesome recipe from another site that I, and everyone else who has tried it, loves. Comparing it to some recipes on here, it doesn't seem that bad. I just have no idea how I would enter it into my meal tracker! It has no nutritional facts, and I obviously can't enter it as a recipe on here because it is from another website and not from me.
Sorry if posted in the wrong area, I'm still new and this seemed like the best spot.
