You can freeze bananas but you should peel the bananas first before freezing them.

To freeze your bananas peel the bananas and then placed the bananas onto a tray and into the freezer, and freeze the bananas until solid.

Then transfer the frozen bananas into a labelled resealable freezer bag, ensuring you remove any excess air before sealing.

Frozen bananas are best used within six months.

Whats the best way to freeze bananas?

Freeze the bananas in a single layer: Place the bananas in a single layer on a large parchment or wax paper-lined baking sheet or plate, and place in the freezer until frozen solid.

This step will prevent the banana chunks from freezing together into a big lump.

Store in an airtight container.

Can you freeze whole unpeeled bananas?

You can freeze them whole with the peel on or off. The outer peel will turn dark in the freezer, but won't affect the banana flesh.

When freezing bananas whole in the peel, all you need to do is put them in a freezer-quality plastic bag and freeze.

Squeeze the air out, seal the bag, label and date.
