I add bananas to a lot of my smoothies, which means at our house we buy loads of bananas at a time. I get the occasional over ripe bananas which is okay because you can make a few things such as gluten free banana bread or you can prevent that by chopping up your bananas and freezing them.
This not only makes a delicious cold smoothie without having to dilute it with ice but it is so convenient!
Follow the instructions below to avoid yourself wasting bananas! I actually learnt the hard way and put a WHOLE banana in the freezer and when it was time to make a smoothie, I couldn’t peel it because it was just literally scrape off the peel in layers AND defrosting it defeated the purpose.
- make sure you get ripe bananas (you don’t want the green ones). I prefer to have some brown spots on the banana because its a bit sweeter
- peel your banana
- slice your banana into smaller pieces
- place your sliced bananas into a freezer bag
- use the bananas whenever you want
