Based on a recipe from Jennifer Cornbleet's book, Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People. She says in its introduction, "Freeze your extra bananas so you will always have some on hand for quick shakes." Unfortunately for me, I froze my bananas before reading her recipe! I will update after I discover how truly difficult it is to peel a frozen banana! UPDATE: it's truly difficult! :( I will definitely go with this recipe the next time! :)


  1. Place bananas so they are not touching on a plate and freeze for one hour. (This will prevent the bananas from sticking together.).
  2. Transfer to a resealable freezer bag, pressing out as much air as possible before sealing the bag, and return bananas to freezer.
  3. Frozen bananas will keep for up to one month.

Funny...I never thought to do it any other way. Another helpful hint. I like to freeze mine in the qty that I need them in a recipe. I have a banana bread recipe that takes 4 medium bananas so I freeze either 2 per or 4 per bag.

I LOVE this trick! It IS hard to peel a frozen banana, but I hate for them to go to waste, and I LOVE having nice, frosty smoothies without diluting them with too much ice. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*an Swap, September 2010

What a great idea! Very handy indeed. Great in summer when it's very hot,instead of an ice cream.Thanks for sharing.
