Banana is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins C & B6 among others, anti-oxidants, minerals especially potassium and soluble dietary fiber. Banana is a popular home remedy for constipation, while it can also relieve hyper acidity or 'heart burn'.
Both banana and papaya are easily available fruits. Papaya, though a low-calorie fruit, is not quite popular owing to its underlying musky taste. Banana on the other hand is a high-calorie fruit and has a sweeter taste. Combining papaya with a sweeter fruit like banana makes it more acceptable. ‘Banana-papaya twosome’ is a delicious dessert that can be served after a wholesome meal. Try this recipe.
