AFAM - Banana Round up

AFAM - A fruit A month, another blog event launched this month to shed light on the importance of fruits in our day to day diet.It's been very informative and fruitful to persons like me who is a bit "fruitlazy" ( there a word?).As suggested by one of our fellow foodie Lakshmik,"banana" was chosen as the theme for this month.Received delicious n'sensational banana recipes from shakes to pancakes.I went "bananas" over all these delicious entries.Thanks to all of you.

Now a bit more info about banana.Did you know banana plant is not a tree , 'its world's largest herb.This highly potassium contented fruit is recommended by doctors for blood pressure.Some of the other medicinal uses of banana being used for, anaemia,heartburn,smoking,weight control etc.Again,Banana plant is the most useful of all the plants.We use almost all parts of this plant for cooking and eating.
