Freezing Bananas

17 Aug

I make smoothies almost every day. It’s a great way to end a workout session and they taste so good! Especially when you make them at home. I used to put bananas as they were, sitting on my kitchen counter all warm and soft. Not that there is anything wrong with it. But once I read somewhere that you could use frozen bananas, I gave it a try and I’ve been hooked every since. It’s not that hard to freeze bananas, but I just wanted to write a post about it because if you’re not used to doing it you might struggle about whether to peel the banana before you put in the freezer or after. Just like my bestie Callie 🙂 You don’t have to jeopardize your fingers, simply peel off the skin of the banana before you freeze them.

All you need is a few bananas and plastic wrap.

Simply peel off the bananas and put them on a piece of plastic wrap you ripped. Make sure the plastic wrap is big enough to cover the whole banana.

Wrap the bananas with the plastic wrap and stack them in the freezer. Whenever you’re making a smoothie, take a banana out, unwrap it (if there is some ice on it, don’t wash it off, let it stay on) cut it into small pieces and add it to your blender. It helps the smoothie get thicker and colder!
