my secret for keeping our freezer stocked with frozen bananas is to buy the old, brown, sale-priced bananas whenever i see them at the store. not only does this save money, but the over-ripe bananas are sweeter, giving them a better flavor for frozen drinks. in the freezer they will last a long time, but they never stay around for that long because i use them in so many recipes!
|slicing the bananas before freezing them can make|
them easier to separate, but i usually don't have
time and skip this step!
