How to: Preserve Bananas & Strawberries

Tip: When they’re about to go bad, cut up Bananas into even sized pieces and spread them out on a flat surface (we used a cutting board, but a plastic tray works well too). Put this in the freezer and when they are frozen or near frozen (about 1 to 2 hours depending on your freezer), put them all in a bag a ziplock freezer bag. Always freeze fruits individually and then put them together so they don’t freeze into one big chunk. These come in handy for healthy smoothies and baking. You can even do this with fresh Bananas!

Tip: When Banana’s turn dark because they are super ripe, throw the whole Banana (peel and all) into the freezer. The darker the Banana, the sweeter it is! These are perfect for baking sugar-free or low-sugar desserts because the sweetness of the Banana compensates for the lack of refined sugar in the recipe. We like this method for our delicious low-fat Banana bread.
