Healthy Eating Tip: Freeze Bananas

Warmer weather makes bunches of bananas turn brown quicker, so before you have to throw them away, freeze them to use for smoothies or banana bread. Just unpeel your nanner, wrap it in plastic wrap, and pop it in the freezer. You can add the frozen banana right to the blender for a fruit smoothie, and for banana bread or muffins, allow them to thaw first. It's a helpful time- and money-saver.

If I am using them in smoothies or ice cream (Vanonymous--it is AMAZING by the way) I usually peel and slice them first. It just makes it easier to blend them up!

That's a great tip, Fit. I've been doing that for the last 2 years or so, and it's awesome, not to mention it cools you down on a hot summer day :-)

frozen bananas are also great as a dessert by themselves. If I have an ice cream craving sometimes i'll freeze them with a chopstick inside, and when its frozen i'll drizzle just a little of that chocolate shell on them. The chocolate makes it less healthy but soooo good!
