Hold one hand close to the stem, while the other hand pulls back the stem until it breaks. The riper the banana, the easier it is to peel this way.

Monkeys are very clever when it comes to holding a banana. They give themselves the stem to hold the banana. Simply squeeze the end of the banana until it splits, then peel it from the bottom.
