The Guardian recently launched their Live Better Campaign.
(You may see a certain someone you know being featured over there soon – If you haven’t signed up yet click here.)
As part of the Live Better Campaign today is:
Now that sounds like a worthwhile cause to me. Particularly as according to figures from WRAP, 1.4mn bananas are thrown away every day?
Don’t forget #nowastetastesgreat 😉
Rather than rustling up a recipe to save a deteriorating banana I thought I’d take a proactive approach.
What if you buy too many bananas? Realising you may not eat all the bananas you popped in your shopping basket, what preventative action can you take to make the save?
Introducing…Chocolate ‘Top’ Banana
Take one ripe banana
And 2 large dessert spoonfuls of chocolate/hazelnut spread (think Nutella and similar)
Peel and chop the banana into 3
(not forgetting to toss the peel into your food-recycling or compost bin)
Pop each banana chunk onto a lolly or cake pop stick
Smear the chocolate spread on top
Roll the chocolate topped banana lolly in sprinkles of your choice
Place in a freezer safe dish and freeze for at least an hour
Voila! A healthy(ish) ready-to-eat-treat
How would you save a banana?
