We eat bananas regularly but sometimes one or two get overripe. I used to pitch them but now I stick them in the freezer. I have a recipe (no nut for the teen with allergies) for banana bread that calls for two bananas so when I get two in the freezer I pull them out on Saturday and make the teen banana bread.

My family will not eat ripe bananas, they prefer them a bit green. So I place the ripe bananas in the freezer peel and all. Then as I need them I grab what I need & place under running warm water to remove the peel. The bananas thaw very quickly & work great in banana bread, muffins, or even pancakes.
I use the frozen bananas in smoothies - the perfect way to sweeten it up. Recently I found that my family loves to eat sliced frozen bananas - another great treat for the summer. Hope you enjoy! 20
Need Mashed Banana? Just Squeeze it In the Peel, then Peel.
I was making batches of banana bread for the freezer and it was taking awhile to mash bananas that were medium ripe. Finally, I decided to squeeze the banana first before peeling. It needed little or no more mashing with a fork after that. It saved time and was far easier.
