Frozen banana? Yes, please!

Okay, so does everyone know about frozen bananas???? I just discovered them. Go right now. Buy some bananas. Let them ripen. Freeze them. Once they are frozen, don't assume that the ugly, brown peel is a sign of what you'll find inside - slice that unattractive thing open and you will find a cold, in tact, perfectly preserved banana. Talk about a tasty treat! So far we've used them in smoothies, popsicles, and psuedo-ice cream (did you know that if you throw frozen, sliced bananas in the blender with a splash of milk to get it going, the consistency totally mimics ice cream????)... I feel like there is a lot more that could be done. Ideas, anyone????
Strawberry Banana Popsicle

  • 1/2 C organic plain yogurt
  • 1 T local honey
    • Place all ingredients in blender
    • Follow Zoku popsicle maker-instructions, adding a few strawberry slices before filling


  1. There's money in the banana stand.

  2. Put the banana on a stick and dip it in chocolate!
