You've Been Peeling Bananas Wrong Your Whole Life

When you pick up a banana, what do you do? Break off the stem and start peeling, right? If so, you're like the rest of us mere mortals-mortals who are wasting precious seconds of our lives fumbling to crack open a banana when we could already be enjoying it.

Take a lesson from the animal kingdom, and try starting from the opposite end, away from the stem: Pinch the bottom and split the banana peel right open, as per the video.

WRONG. That's not how the monkeys do it, and the monkeys are pros because bananas are the pizza of the monkey world. What you want to do is pinch the tip and split it right open, as per the video.

Once you have a peeled banana, you could enjoy it as-is for a light snack, or take things one delish step further: Blend them into ice cream, mash them into some Reese's Amazeballs or try one of these over-the-top twists on banana bread

What a time to be alive.
