A note on bananas

These are perfectly ripe bananas and just about ready for the freezer. I usually wait until they’re a bit more ripened before peeling and storing, that is when they are the sweetest. Using them in their sweetest state means the less added sweetener you will need. So let your bananas ripen well before storing. I freeze mine unpeeled and broken into pieces. Having these on hand you can add them to smoothies, shakes and ice creams. They will stay well in the freezer for about 6 to 9 months.
