  • 3 large ripe bananas peeled (or as many as you have)


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • If you haven't already, peel the bananas. Either cut bananas in half or slice into 1/2-inch rounds and place on prepared baking sheet in a single layer so they aren't touching or overlapping.

  • Place baking sheet in freezer and freeze bananas until solid, at least 1-2 hours.
  • Transfer the frozen bananas to a freezer-safe storage bag labeled with the date. Seal the bag, removing as much air as possible. Return to the freezer for later use. They will stay fresh up to 3 months in the freezer.
