Can You Freeze a Banana? Yes, you can! Have you ever purchased too many bananas and not been able to eat them before they get too ripe or found bananas for a great price but didn’t have a use for them? Now you do! Freeze them! First of all frozen bananas taste great! You can freeze them and eat them by themselves for special frozen treat dip them in chocolate and roll them in nuts!

Can You Freeze a Banana?
So what’s the best method for freezing a banana? There are several different ways to do it but my preferred way is to peel the banana, cut it into slices, and put the slices in freezer bags/freezer safe containers. I normally use a frozen banana for a fruit smoothie, banana bread or banana pudding. So having them sliced is better for me.
For best results if you plan to eat your banana whole freeze before it is over ripe by peeling and wrapping with saran wrap. If you are going to use it for a smoothie or banana bread you can freeze it even after the banana is over ripe. It is a great way to stretch your dollar! I like to pick up bananas on managers special and bring them home to freeze.
