Meanwhile, whisk together flour, 5-spice blend, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup ginger ale and butter until paste forms. Slowly whisk in remaining 1/2 cup ginger ale until thick batter forms.

Peel bananas; break each into 5 equal pieces with your hands to make 20 pieces total. Working in small batches and letting oil return to 350°F (180°C) between each batch, dip bananas into batter; gently lower into hot oil using tongs or slotted spoon and fry, turning occasionally, until crispy and golden all over, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate to drain.
