Sometimes I buy a big bunch of bananas, get about half way through them and lose interest in them all together. As a result I often have a fruit bowl on the table holding some dark figures that resemble bananas, only a little more sinister looking. Some people may toss these degrading fruits in the bin straight away while others might toss them in the deep freeze with the intentions of using them for a tasty loaf of banana bread, but we all know that rarely happens. Instead of tossing your black bananas and creating (even more) food waste, peel them, chop them into 1 inch pieces and freeze in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once they’re completely frozen you can transfer to a zip-top bag and use them in your morning smoothies to add a banana boost to your day.
