How to freeze and use overripe bananas
Bananas are very versatile and always on my shopping list. They are loaded with Vitamin A, C, B6 potassium, fibre, antioxidants - it's all there. Sometimes, no matter how fast you try to eat them, there are always those last few lefts that became spotty and mushy. Now, those are the ones we want, the riper banana the sweeter.
Once frozen, bananas won't ripen any further. This is a good way to preserve their sweetness and get most out of them.
Peel your bananas and cut in the desired length. I cut every banana in four pieces, so when the time is to use them, I will know that four pieces make one banana, for measurement.
You can also label your containers, but I use up mine pretty fast.
I do this once a week, as it depends on my weekly lunch ideas and plans. Luckily, you can always use them for smoothies or ice creams, so they definitely won't go to waste.
Bananas can be left frozen for up to 5 months, and freezing time is about 2 hours. Next time, for smoothies, you can skip ice cubes and use frozen banana pieces!
