One banana went into my smoothie. The other three were peeled, nestled side by side into a freezer bag, and dated.
This way, when I need banana, all I need to do is remove the bag and slice some off the clump, like this:
Return the unused portion quickly to the freezer.
Another hint is to buy organic baby spinach and freeze it right away. I buy a HUGE box of it at Cost-Co and stick it right into the freezer. The next day, I put the frozen leaves into a freezer bag and crush them down to condense the bulk. (I also use this spinach in my quiche and my easy crock pot lasagna.)
Now it is time to share my recipe. Each ingredient is referenced with a link to an article on it's health benefits.
