How To Peel A Banana (10 Ways)
Hold one hand close to the stem, while the other hand pulls back the stem until it breaks. The riper the banana, the easier it is to peel this way.
2. Banana Share
This is great for kids who don’t want to eat a whole banana. Just put both of your hands into the middle of the banana and snap it in half.
3. Monkey Magic
Monkeys are very clever when it comes to holding a banana. They give themselves the stem to hold the banana. Simply squeeze the end of the banana until it splits, then peel it from the bottom.

4. Twist and Peel
Grasp the banana in the centre. Twist your fingers in different directions. The skin will snap open and you can peel the banana from the middle.
5. Gravity Peel
Hold the stem with the banana upside down and throw it away from you. It will snap the stem and start peeling the banana
6. Chef’s Chop
Use a sharp knife to cut off both ends of the banana, slice lengthways down the banana peel.
7. Baby Fingers
Slice the banana all the way down leaving the skin around each circle. This makes it fun for babies to push the banana out of the skin and easy for them to get a good grip on the banana.
8. Length Slice
Slice the knife lengthways down the banana which slices the whole banana in half. This is a great quick way to slice a banana if you are dehydrating long strips of banana.
9. Frozen Peel
How to peel a frozen banana? This is a bit trickier because banana peels are stuck tight on when they come straight out of the freezer. There are 3 ways to do this. But I’m just going to show you one way today.
The first way is to wait 5 minutes until your banana has thawed a little bit. Slice off the ends of the banana. Slice the banana in half lengthways and peel using your hands.

10. 3 Section Pusher
Peel a banana as normal. Use your thumb to push downwards from the top of the banana. The banana should split into 3 natural segments. This is also perfect for making cinnamon rolls. See my recipe Cinnamon Rolls (ONLY FRUIT, NO BAKE).

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
