Bananas are a great portable snack, straight from their skin. They are also very versatile in what you can create with them, like this delicious Banana Guacamole.
Banana Guacamole for Adults
This recipe is rich in fibre and the essential nutrients vitamin B6, vitamin C, folate, magnesium and potassium. The natural fat in the avocado and the natural sugars in the banana make this recipe a perfect dish for good health. The fibre is excellent for your gut, and of course, this recipe is low salt and high in potassium for healthy blood pressure.
Serving size: 2 adults as part of a meal, or 4 as a dip
Prepping time: 15 minutes

2 ripe avocados
2 lady finger bananas, diced
1/2 red capsicum, finely diced
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 lime, zest and juice
1 tbsp coriander, chopped
1 chilli, chopped (optional)
Scoop the avocado flesh into a medium bowl and use a large fork to lightly mash or leave it chunky. Fold in the bananas, red capsicum and red onion until combined.
