For the Banana macaron shell, add yellow coloring so the macaron looks like a banana skin. People will know visually that the macaron you made has a banana flavor even if it’s just a photo and they haven’t tasted it. The use of bananas is only in ganache filling. No need to add bananas to the macaron shell.
