Can You Ripen a Banana in the Microwave????


I found myself in quite a food state this week….

The other day, I was dreaming of eating some amazing oatmeal with sliced bananas…and I recently went to the store to buy said banana.

The banana was green as hell….but I prayed against hope that it would slowly turn an edible yellow overnight.

News flash: it didn’t.

I was desperate. What is an oatmeal without it’s sliced bananas?!

So, I decided to try one trick that I heard whispers about…..ripening my green-ass banana in the microwave….

I tested this theory out….and was rather surprised with the result.

You can in fact ripen a banana in the microwave!

Here is my entire process I followed:

  • Step 1: Peel the Banana (not as easy as it sounds, mind you)
  • Step 2: Cut the Banana into Coins
  • Step 3: Microwave in a (microwave-safe) bowl for 2 minutes

Add cinnamon and eat 🙂

The consistency and taste of what once was a green banana is ….surprising to say the least.

The taste almost reminds me of a warm soft pretzel (like Auntie Anne’s)…and with that cinnamon on top…I was swimming in mouth feel.

So there you have it. You can do it.

Microwave all the bananas!
