How to freeze bananas

Most of the time, I simply put overripe bananas straight into my freezer. When I want to make this ice cream, I hold them under hot running water for a few seconds then peel them with a paring knife.

Another option is to freeze them in chunks. This can be handy if you make a lot of banana ice cream and smoothies.

  • Cut the ripe bananas into 1-inch chunks then lay them in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze.
  • Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag. I love these reusable large Stasher freezer bags!

How long does banana peanut butter ice cream last

This is cream is made for those of us who don't plan ahead as it is best eaten as soon as you make it. I scoop it directly from the blender into bowls. It is pretty soft this way, but we love it.

You can freeze it, but I'd recommend eating it within 2 hours. While it can be frozen for longer periods, it will freeze solid and need to thaw before you can eat it. It's still good once it thaws, but never quite as good as when it's fresh.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe, frozen bananas, peeled
  • 1/4 cup all-natural salted peanut butter
  • Optional: chocolate chips, to serve

Notes

If you are using a high-powered blender, use the tamper to push the bananas into the blades.

If you're using a food processor, you may need to add a tablespoon or two of milk. Dairy-free milk works great.

To make a single serving, use 1 banana + 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.
