How-To: Cut & Freeze Bananas

I have been seeing so many pins on Pinterest for smoothie recipes with bananas! Being a banana smoothie lover myself, I’ve pinned several recipes & have been making them almost every morning :-) After trying several options for chilling my smoothies, I have figured out that using pre-frozen bananas is the best bet. The smoothies end up creamy, not too thick, and not watered-down.

Make the perfect creamy smoothies by making your own frozen bananas using these helpful tips!

    I never thought of cutting up bananas that way. When you read what put it seems to just make sense. I have used other kinds of frozen fruit to make smoothies too. I have also frozen juice in ice cube trays to use for smoothies.

    Awesome tips, thanks!!
    I’ve been freezing my bananas whole, in the peeling, and it’s super annoying trying to cut the skin off once it’s frozen.

    This will be super helpful for making banana “ice cream”, if you’re not familiar with it, you HAVE to try it.
    Just blend the frozen bananas (with a touch of milk, to make the blending easier) then you can either eat it as banana flavoured soft serve, or you can refreeze the soft serve and get hard ice cream.
    I like to add peanut butter, coco, or berries for added flavour options.

    My favourite smoothie has a little bit of kale (about 2 or 3 leaves) a whole lot of spinach (3/4 full), one banana, frozen mangos (about 8-9 chunks), frozen strawberry (10-12 chunks) a little bit of milk (I use flax milk) and a little bit of water. I like my smoothy texture thick, so I just add enough liquid to blend.

      Thanks for the tips! I’ve never had banana ice cream, but I’ve heard of it and am DYING to try it! I’ve never thought of adding peanut butter or chocolate! :-)
