Whenever I walk past the frozen fruit and dessert section in the store I am rather baffled by those smoothie mixes. Freezing fruit seems too much of an easy task for me to ever even consider buying one of those premixed bags. Not to mention that I also rather choose myself what to put into my smoothies.
Freezing bananas is indeed one of the easiest tasks. I still found it important enough to blog about it though since there are two very reliable methods of doing so.
Freezing peeled banana
Simply peel them and place them into either bags or freezer friendly containers.
Freezing bananas in the peel
Yes it is possible to freeze the whole fruit with the peel on. You skip the plastic bags by doing so but you are faced with the slight problem of how to peel a frozen banana. It is far easier than you might think and my favourite method of doing so. The skin might turn black eventually but the banana itself doesn’t turn brown no matter how long it stays in the freezer.
To get a frozen banana out of its peel simply leave it on the counter for a few minutes. Then you cut along the banana. I do that three times while rotating it. Now all you got to do is cut the tip off and then lift the peel.
Voila! You got yourself a perfectly frozen banana ready to go into whatever dish you want to use it in. I hope this answered any questions you may have had about how to freeze bananas.
