Got Overripe Bananas?  Dont throw away!!

Martha Stewart Living, September 2004
Don't let overripe bananas go to waste. Freeze them to use later for refreshing smoothies. First, peel and slice bananas; then freeze each one in an airtight container or plastic bag. When ready to use, there's no need to defrost. Blend together 1 frozen banana with 1 cup plain yogurt and a splash of orange, mango, or pineapple juice for about one minute, until consistency is thin enough to sip through a straw.  Enjoy sipping:)

~Dressing - Avacado~

A cool and creamy avocado dressing with tangy buttermilk, fresh cilantro and lime juice along with some spicy jalapeno pepper ~ what else do you need to make your dressing yumm:)

For a new salad that I have been thinking about I wanted a nice and cool and creamy dressing and I was thinking about trying something a little bit different, an avocado dressing. I was originally planning on including diced avocado in the salad but I liked the idea of a creamy avocado dressing even more. I did make one quick change to the recipe by including some mayonnaise which goes fabulously well with avocados. I have to say that this avocado dressing is amazingly good; nice and creamy so so fresh and vibrant! Now I just need to resist eating it all by the spoonful so that it can make it into the salad!
Ingredients
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 small jalapeno*
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk**
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (completely optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and ground
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Puree everything in a blender until smooth. Store in fridge and finish within a few days.
* Leave the seeds in for more heat or remove them for less.
** Use more buttermilk to make it thinner or less to make it thicker.
