Frozen bananas make the best smoothies, ice cream, and chocolate dipped snacks! If you ever have some over ripe-bananas sitting on the counter, freeze them instead of throwing them away. Follow these simple steps and you will have frozen bananas within a few hours.
How to Freeze Bananas in 5 easy steps…
- Peel the bananas.
- Cut them into 1 inch slices.
- Place them on a piece of thick tin foil.**
- Place in freeze for several hours.
- Once they are mostly frozen transfer to a plastic bag for storage up to 3 months.
**By placing the bananas on foil, it makes them really easy to remove and transfer to a zip-loc bag because the foil is so flexible. I rip off a large piece of foil, fold it over 3-4 times to make it thicker and then create 4 side walls. The foil can be stored in the freezer or wash it and store in the cupboard for future use.
