It’s common to think that overripe bananas aren’t good for eating anymore, but you should absolutely not toss them before you try this amazing trick. Set aside a few minutes to save your dying bananas and freeze them using our tip. You can then use them to make smoothies, ice cream, and other desserts.

Gather the overripe bananas that you don’t want to eat anymore. Peel the skin and slice them into small chunks. One to two inches per slice is okay. Depending on what you will use them for, you can adapt the size of the pieces, but in general, smaller pieces are better for blending later.

Layer the banana chunks on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. You want to carefully arrange them so they aren’t all over the place. Doing that will allow each chunk to freeze separately, and for example, if you just toss them into a freezer bag you will end up with a big frozen banana brick you can’t really use.

Once the bananas have frozen on the baking sheet, you can transfer them to plastic bags for easier storage. Then simply use as much as you need at a time without a single worry!
