Freezing Bananas

Before bananas go bad, pop them into the freezer to use later.

I simply put the entire banana in a Ziploc freezer bag. The outside peel will turn brown and black, but they are just fine for baking (I use them in my Chunky Monkey Banana Muffins), adding to a pudding or even throwing into a smoothie.


  1. Great tip. I do this all the time - except I peel them before freezing. It saves trying to do it after they thaw out (yuck).

  2. Great idea, and thanks for the peeling first comment. I have tried to freeze bananas before and didnt like the peeling process.

  3. I had never even thought of peeling before freezing - I'll have to give it a try!
