In summer, we sweat a lot. With the sweat, much of Potassium is loosing from our body. To stay balanced, Banana which is full of Potassium is a perfect fruit in summer. 10% of Potassium in our body exists in our skin, when our body lacks Potassium, our skin looks dull. 

Top crepes with warm, sweet, buttery bananas and a drizzle of dark chocolate, and you have an elegant dessert.
