I am normally not a picky eater.
I’ll try most anything once and sometimes even twice.
But I have a super sensitive texture thing going on when it comes to bananas.
I buy them green and eat them right after they’ve turned yellow. I like them very firm and NOT mushy at all!!
Well that’s a problem if you buy 10 bananas at a time!!
I can’t eat all 10 they day they turn yellow or even in the first two days. And I never know who will be in a banana mood around here.
So what do I do with the 8 brown, spotted, mushy bananas?
I peel them.
Slice them in rounds.
Then I pop them in the freezer (2 bananas to a bag)!
And there they sit waiting to become smoothies, muffins or whatever else I have a hankering for.
I love that nothing gets wasted!!
I’ve most recently made a healthy shake for breakfast with my frozen doubloons.
2 frozen bananas, pre-sliced before freezing
1 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup milk (or almond milk)
1 Tbsp maple syrup or sugar/sweetener
1 heaping Tbsp peanut butter
Combine in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
This shake is super frothy, healthy and so delicious!!
Another favorite that everybody in the Sewell house loves is a smoothie with frozen mixed berries, a sprinkle of sugar and enough milk to pull it all together. Blend it up and it’s Happy Happy Happy!
