6 Ways To Use Frozen Bananas

When bananas start to get overripe, usually the first thought is to toss them out! However, overripe bananas make a great ingredient when frozen! You can make almost any kind of DIY frozen treat with them and you’ll still be getting a big serving of fruit in whatever you choose to create! Check out the list below for 6 ways to use frozen bananas:

  1. Banana Pops: If you want to make an easy portable treat, try making banana pops! Slice the bananas to your preferred size and place on a skewer. You can dip the banana in chocolate or any other coating you prefer and lay them out on a lined tray to freeze! Once frozen, they will be ready to enjoy!
  2. DIY Ice Cream: Ice cream couldn’t be easier to make when it comes to frozen bananas. Simply, throw your bananas in a food processor for 30-60 seconds. Once the bananas start to break down, add in items such as chocolate, peanut butter or even nuts! Run the processor for another 45 seconds or until mix is creamy and smooth.
  3. Milkshake: Frozen bananas are one of the best ingredients for a healthier milkshake! It will give your shake a creamy texture, the bananas will replace the need for ice and your smoothie will be guilt free by leaving out the sugary ice cream add in!
  4. Banana Bites: For an easy, fast dessert try making a batch of banana bites. Cut your bananas into slices and lay them out on parchment paper. Once laid out, cover them in chocolate and freeze for a few hours. Once frozen, you will have a yummy handheld dessert that your guests will love!
  5. Baking Bananas: If you can’t use your overripe bananas right away, freeze them for later use! Frozen bananas don’t take long to defrost and are perfect for baking as they have a great texture after being frozen. If you need to defrost them quickly, pop them in the microwave for a few seconds at a time and they will be ready to use in no time.
  6. Smoothies: If you find yourself strapped for time in the morning, a smoothie can be a great idea for a fast breakfast! Pop some chopped bananas, strawberries and any other fruit you prefer in a small Ziploc bag and freeze. When you are ready to blend your smoothie, all you have to do is pour in your frozen bag of fruit and a liquid of your choice into the blender.
