I love bananas. But I like them when they are at that stage where they still have green on the peel and are just turning yellow. Once they look like this I don't like eating them.
So the I have a few options. Let them go a couple more days and make banana bread or dehydrate or freeze them. I like banana bread and if I only had a couple of bananas left I would have made some. But I had most of the bunch left. I already have some dehydrated bananas so I decided to freeze them. It is pretty simple. Just peel and slice up your bananas. I lay them on a aluminum foil lined cookie sheet. Pop into the freezer and let freeze until thoroughly frozen.
Once they are completely frozen pop into a bag and put in the freezer. I use them in smoothies. Smoothies are healthier than juice. You have all the fiber still in your fruit. I blend the frozen fruit with a little juice, rice milk, and honey. The kids love these smoothies and they are healthier than eating banana bread!!
