I used to make muffins with my over-ripe bananas even if I didn't feel like it because I didn't want to waste them. But a friend recently enlightened me - bananas can be cut up and frozen. I tried it and it worked a treat, now I have frozen banana pieces ready to use for baking or smoothies.
yep. over ripe banana can be used to make muffins, or bread. but i usually make simple snacks we called 'cekodok'. mash those bananas up really good, mix with plain flour, some salt and you get a quite thick batter. shape into small pieces - usually spoonful - and deep fry them! :D
Apart from putting them in muffins or blending frozen banana for smoothies, you can mash them and make banana fritters with ice cream or make banana pancakes. Another way is you can dipped cut up frozen banana into melted chocolate for a treat!
Yep, I agree. I generally tend to freeze any bananas that are getting past the point I'd eat fresh. I use them for making banana cupcakes, but they're perfect for smoothies. I love that I can use a frozen banana and I don't have to worry about adding ice, frozen yoghurt or ice cream to get a nice thick consistency.
Yes, I stumbled onto freezing bananas a little while back, and it was amazing! Suddenly opportunities to make all these yummy banana smoothies opened up, to complement my usual banana bread, banana muffins, or banana pancakes.
I tend to buy heaps of bananas and occassionally the kids will decide that they don't want them. So sometimes I get the same problem- overripe bananas! Banana bread is always a favourite and I have a recipe that freezes really well so I always have some on hand to stock up the lunch boxes or for morning tea.
I also freeze bananas on their own- but be sure to slice them prior to freezing if you want to use them for smoothies or quickly in baked goods. A whole frozen banana is like a brick :).
