Freezing Leftover Bananas for Smoothies!

by Katie on September 17, 2014

Do you ever buy bananas and before you know it they are too brown to eat? It’s like they have 1-2 days of perfect eating – at least in my opinion. I don’t like any green and really don’t like any brown on them. Because of my pickiness I usually have some brown bananas on hand that didn’t get eaten.

Instead of letting them go to waste I just freeze them for recipes like Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies and Green Smoothies!

Occasionally I will make Cream Cheese Swirled Banana Bread or Banana Crumb Muffins, but I would be 1,000 pounds if I did that every time I had some over-ripe bananas. And that would just be bad, wouldn’t it?

Got over-ripe bananas?  Check out how to freeze them and use for smoothies!

All you have to do is peel the bananas and lay on a cookie sheet lined with freezer paper. I usually cut mine in half, but you could also slice them if you wish. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer until the bananas are firm and then transfer the frozen bananas to a freezer bag.

When you want a smoothie just grab out a banana half or two and throw them in the blender. It will help make a nice cold smoothie without having to add ice (or much ice)!

Don't toss over-ripe bananas!  Freeze bananas for smoothies!!
