You can never go wrong with a fruity recipe with bananas.

Bananas have a mild sweet and creamy flavor that tastes superb in desserts. They are also soft and tender, making them easy and quick to mash or blend for the milkshake and popsicle.

The riper the banana, the sweeter and tastier it will taste! Aside from their flavor, you can also use bananas for plenty of other recipes. I usually use them to make smoothies and desserts to bread recipes.

health benefits

  • They are also loaded with nutrients for stronger bones and better immunity.

I suggest using bananas for other recipes, such as Banana Puff Puff, Banana Bread, and Banana Porridge. With the flavor and benefits of bananas, there’s no doubt that they will be great for this recipe.

Strawberries

You’ll feel “berry” satisfied with strawberries in the mix.

Give the recipe a touch of summer vibes with bright red, juicy, and sweet strawberries. Strawberries also have a floral scent that will make you want to eat more of them.

With fresh and sweet strawberries, you can make a truly fun dessert. It’s also one of my go-to fruits for healthy recipes like this one. You can also use strawberries for other desserts and drinks.

health benefits

  • These berries have also been linked to better heart health and brain function.
  • Everyday Health suggests boosting your immunity with strawberries.
