Who knew sweet, sweet bananas could have such a spicy side? Well, try it out and see its a major success. Bonus: their recipe can be thrown together in 10 minutes or less!

This Spicy Banana Dip is a unique shareable that will be the new crowd pleaser and have everyone asking for the recipe. Instead of going to the basic route of chips and salsa, turn things around with this healthier alternative that is amazing with your cracker of choice (a much less salty option). This dip uses a variety of fresh ingredients like mint, ginger and green chile, but none of which overpower the natural banana taste. It's also vegan, vegetarian and gluten free, so it can be enjoyed by all who can handle the heat!
