There’s an old saying that resonates even now. ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ This rule doesn’t just apply to apples. Every fruit has a unique health benefit. While a few people are allergic to grains or nuts, fruits are non-allergic. You can consume it raw or in the form of Juice. Children may not always favor fruits. Hence, you can blend it with traditional sweets.

Banana sheera or simply sheera is one of the famous Indian dessert made with semolina or rava and ripe bananas. It is a lot similar to kesari sweet. In some places, it is also known as sooji halwa. It uses just two additional ingredients. Banana sheera is also one of the preferred dishes that is made during festivals.

Health Benefits

  • Bananas contain several essential nutrients and provide benefits for digestion, heart health, and weight loss.
  • The carbs in green, unripe bananas consist mostly of starch and resistant starch, but as the banana ripens, the starch turns into sugar (glucose, fructose, and sucrose).
