Freezing bananas saves me money!

I used to throw out over-ripened bananas.  But now I slice them up and put them in a tupperware in the freezer.  I use the pieces to bulk up smoothies.

Or sometimes I take about one banana's worth out, put in a bowl, sprinkle with chocolate syrup and put a glob of frozen fat free whipped cream and some maraschino cherries, it's like a fat free, non lactose sundae!

Just don't let them thaw out, or they will be gross, lol.

Mmmm!

If you let them thaw you can also use them in banana muffins and bread!

You don't even need to peel them;for years I've had a gallon zip-loc "banana bag" in my freezer.The fruit gets over-ripe and into the bag I throw it,whole.Then I pull them out as needed for banana breads or muffins or for the famous frozen banana with chocolate sauce and whipped cream you mention.Been doing it for about 15 years,although you should know I'm not old.I think I was in pre-school when I started freezing bananas:) Anybody believe me?

I've had major problems peeling frozen bananas.  How do you do it?

I have thrown them in peeled once and I had to scrape off the peel and the texture seemed ruined but that is interesting.

Yeah, that's the same thing that happened to my bananas when I left the skin on too. I wonder how does she do it?
