  • 2 fingers green banana
  • 1 tbsp butter or ghee
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Set a pot of water to boil
  • Cut both ends off of the bananas
  • Make a cut lengthwise from top to bottom (you are trying to make an opening between the skin and the banana, not actually slice it)
  • Put in the pot of boiling water. It’s a good idea to tip a bit of acid in the pot, like a wedge of lemon or a tablespoon or so of apple cider vinegar, to prevent staining your pot.
  • Once the bananas are tender and the skin will come off easily (approximately 15 minutes), remove from pot.
  • Peel off the remaining skin.

  • Mash with butter and sea salt or other desired seasonings.
