Are Bananas Good For You?
Bananas are a good source of healthy nutrients.
Bananas are high in potassium and contain good levels of protein and dietary fiber.
Can Bananas Be Frozen?
You can slice bananas and freeze to be used in smoothies or even to be eaten as a frozen snack.
You can also mash bananas and freeze in airtight containers or freezer bags to be used later in cakes, cookies or breads.
How Do You Keep Bananas From Ripening Too Quickly?
Once bananas have reached desired ripeness, you can place them in the refrigerator.
The peel will turn black, but the banana will maintain its perfect ripeness for a longer period of time.
You can also wrap the stems of bananas in plastic wrap to slow the ripening process.
