Green banana mash



Wait! Don’t go! I know it sounds weird but according to Matt this was ‘f***ing incredible’ and is now ‘our new thing‘. he even made me list everything that went into it, suspecting me of sneaking in half a pack of butter whilst he wasn’t looking.


In fact there are only four simple ingredients. And when I made it for the second time today we had no milk so I substituted it with water and added a few spoonfuls of ripe avocado – it worked a treat.


I would never have discovered this if we hadn’t been given a bunch of green bananas but we were both shocked by how well it worked and how much it resembled ‘proper mash’. 


Green Banana Mash
  1. 4 green bananas
  2. 7 tablespoons of milk
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
  1. Cut the end off the bananas and slice a line through the skin.
  2. Cut them in half and place in a pan (still in their skins).
  3. Boil for 15 minutes or until the bananas are soft and have started to split where the skin has been cut.
  4. Turn off the heat, take out the bananas and throw away any remaining water.
  5. Use a knife and from to peel the bananas whilst they are still hot.
  6. Return the bananas to the pan along with the milk.
  7. Place over a low heat to warm the milk and mash with a fork or potato masher.
  8. Once you are happy with the texture, stir in the salt and pepper
  9. Et voila - there you have it, a delicious and easy mash with no potato!
