Banana is the most common and easy available fruit in the entire world!! Yes, which is why most of us consume them – And also bananas are a healthy source of fiber, potassium and other anti-oxidants.

Unfortunately, bananas are easily perishable. The shelf life is so short, you have to use them as soon as they are ready for consumption, Although packed with nutrients, not all banana produced are consumed and still edible bananas are thrown away in millions. Sometimes, we have overripe banana and if they are not edible and mushy we throw them away – This must be stopped and we have to use all the produce we buy wisely and reduce waste.

Chocolate Fudge Icing

Speaking of overripe bananas, I have a few recipes in my blog – check them out and here below is one more.

This Chocolate banana bread is an one bowl recipe, so easy to make and is a good change from the regular banana bread if you are a baker.

The recipe includes an amazingly easy, luscious Chocolate fudge icing drizzled on top which is optional – but guys, I would love for you all to try it. It is easy, delicious and so very chocolate-y I have no words to describe it other than heavenly.

This chocolate fudge sauce is the same I use as my Churros dipper as well. It is that good, and is customizable – Flavor it however you like.
