Interesting facts about the simple banana

Vanilla essence is not only used to flavour desserts, but it is also added to some hot beverages to add flavour like in tea, coffee or even milk.
Vanilla is also thought to help in relieving pain caused from burns.
Another good tip for bananas –
Peel soft bananas and place in the freezer in a sealed plastic bag.
Later use them to add to deserts. They taste just like banana ice cream!
