What can I do with one overripe banana?

Aside from freezing to make a banana ice cream sort of thing
, what can I make using a single ripe banana? I don't like eating bananas plain once they've started turning brown, I don't want to make banana bread, and I don't want to buy anything extra (probably) or do anything very elaborate or calorie intensive (Bananas Foster, for example).

We also happen to have two plums, lemons, a very small amount of walnuts, peanut butter, fruit preserves (strawberry or cherry, not sure), yogurt, milk and almond milk, eggs, and the usual flour, sugar, etc. staples.
It doesn't have to be a sweet thing. We also have zucchinis, tomatoes, onions, green and red peppers, cabbage, carrots, celery, garlic, frozen chicken legs quarters that will probably become a soup, beef for stewing, lentils, noodles, rice, and rice noodles, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, balsamic vinegar.
It seems a silly question, but I end up with one overripe banana often enough that it might be handy to have a few ideas!
