Happy spring Friday, friends! I hope you all have something fabulous planned for the weekend that includes sunshine, cocktails and a little QT with your moms. Moms are the best. (Mine especially.)

As promised, I have a new episode of Just The Tip to share with today, in which I demonstrate a magical hack for ripening bananas overnight. You’ll need this handy trick for when you can only find green bananas at the market, but you have imminent delicious plans for them and can’t wait a week for the natural ripening process to occur. (If this has never happened to you before, it might some day, and I want you to be prepared.) All you need is a plastic bag and an apple…

I imagine you’ll want to try this banana wizardry ASAP, so here are some banana-themed recipes to put those ripe bananies to good use:

Banana-Berry Baked Oatmeal Bites
“Elvis” French Toast
Banana Bread with Walnut Crumble
Vegan Orange Julius Smoothie
Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats
One-Ingredient Banana “Ice Cream”
Matcha-Colada Smoothie Bowl
