Keep fresh fruit around
Buy fresh fruit and keep it in stock and in sight. I keep apples and bananas on the counter, and fresh berries and such at eye level in the fridge. Chances are, if it is in sight, you'll eat it.
When bananas are on sale or on the reduced produce shelf....I buy them! Peel them, cut them into smaller chunks and freeze....perfect for smoothies.
Use half of a mashed ripe banana to replace an egg in recipes like muffins...as long as you don't mind a little banana taste (use a little baking powder).
I have also used banana to replace oil in certain recipes...like you use applesauce. Go Bananas!!.

Keeping Bananas Fresh
Being Diabetic and watching carbs, I don't eat a whole banana. I eat half of one...When you buy bananas, take each one off the bunch so they are all separate. They last MUCH longer ! ! ! I cut one in half, eat half and put the other half (with peel on) in a sandwich bag, push the air out and store in the frig. They don't turn brown if in a plastic bag. If they do, just the tip will. Just cut it off...Enjoy
Using bananas in recipes
If you have to mash bananas for a recipe such as banana bread or muffins, a potato masher is a quick and easy way to do it.
