You might wan to omit bananas from your diet due to the high number of carbohydrates or sugars in the banana.Yellow or brown” bananas contains more sugar than green ones which have more fiber. It’s not that banana’s are ‘bad’ for you, it’s just that they’re not good for losing weight as they do contain a lot of simple sugars. Berries are better. If you are strictly monitoring sugar & caloric intake the biggest thing is glycemic spike with a banana. If you can't give them up, eat in moderation
I love ice cream, so I had to find a way to make healthy. The secret? Mash-up or puree in a food blender a few frozen bananas. Tastes and feels just like banana ice cream, without the added calories! Usually I just freeze the bananas that are going brown, and pop them in the freezer. Simply put them in the microwave until you can just peel the skins off, then mash or puree. Not only are you saving on food that is usually tossed, but it's a great way to stay on a healthy diet.
