Have you ever went into the grocery store and looked at those big looking bananas and wonder what are they? what are they good for? how do they taste?

Well they are like bananas, bu they are plantains and are native to India and are grown in mostly tropical climates. They are good for:

  1. high blood pressure
  2. the leaves of the plantain can be used for bites and overall healing of the skin
  3. heart trouble

 

They contain a high amount of potassium as well and can be made into a smoothie. Mix low fat milk, a plantain, rice, (optional) and cinnamon. and you’ll have made a very pleasant smelling, tasting drink.
