What do you do with your overripe bananas? In case you ever forget that you had some bananas and they happen to overripe, don’t get rid of them.

Instead, try making use of your overripe bananas through these genius ways:

Spice up your pancakes


They will make them sweeter and moist. Just blend your overripe bananas and add them to your pancakes batter.

Smoothies all the way

When added to smoothies, they add some flavor and make your drink creamier. For best results, freeze your bananas first before using them for the smoothies or milkshakes.

Make a face mask


Your skin gets to benefits as well. If you are a skincare enthusiast, you can make a face mask using overripe bananas, honey and yogurt. Mix the three ingredients together, apply on your face and leave in for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and moisturize.

Face scrub

To remove the dead cells from your skin, mix some sugar and overripe bananas and make a natural face scrub. Your skin will be left feeling softer and smoother.

Brighten your smile


If you have nothing to do with the bananas, you can still make use of the peels. Get the peels and rub them on your teeth and make them whiter.

Soften your feet

When feet get so dry, they can crack. To make them softer, you can make a foot scrub with overripe bananas and honey. Apply the mask on your feet, wrap them with clingfilm, and wait for 10 minutes. Wash off the mask and repeat the procedure until you get results.
