So for todays quick tip: Frozen Bananas:
I don't know about you but I always order a ton of bananas from the grocery store and we rarely eat them all before they turn brown. So what do you do with all of those brown bananas??? You could make some bread but if you don't have time for that....You FREEZE them!
I peel them, cut them in 2-3 inch chunks and throw them in a freezer bag!! Here are some ideas for how to use them up!
- This one is probably a no-brainer but you add them to smoothies. I add a little frozen banana to all of my smoothies because it makes them thick and creamy. I make this shake daily and I always throw in a little frozen banana.
- Add them to Oatmeal!! Sounds weird but it works great! I make steel cut oatmeal almost every morning and while the oats are cooking....I throw in a couple chunks of frozen banana instead of using fresh. They melt into the oats and sweeten the oatmeal perfectly!
- Last but not least...I use frozen bananas to make ice cream! If it is the end of the day and you are craving a sweet treat...Frozen banana ice cream is WAY healthier for you than Ben and Jerry's! It is also super delicious! I like to top mine with dark chocolate chips! YUM!
So tell me....
