  • 1 bunch very ripe bananas or more or less according to what you have


  • Peel the bananas.
  • Break in half. Add to a freezer bag.
  • Or, slice into rounds and add to a freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible.
  • Press flat and seal. You want the bananas to be in a single layer to prevent them from freezing together.
  • Place flat into the freezer and freeze at for at least 4 hours or up to 6 months. (You can store the bag upright after they have been in the freezer for at least 4 hours and they won't freeze together.)
