    Frozen Bananas

    I get some good deals on ripe bananas sometimes. I know they can be frozen and used in banana muffins and bread. I recently got 5 extra large organic bananas for 75 cents. I froze all but one by cutting them in half and wrapping them in aluminum foil. I decided to try frozen bananas in my cereals. I took the half of a banana out of the freezer just before putting together my cereal. I then cut up the banana and put it in my cereal bowl. It worked out great! Now I can stock up the next time I see reduced bananas. Just thought I'd pass on that tip.

    Also, I love banana shakes. Just cut up a half of a frozen banana. Add 8 oz of milk and a Tbls. of sugar and mix in the blender. It is easy, filling and delicious!

     We use the frozen chunks in the food processor - if you process it just until smooth, it has the consistency (and sweetness!) of soft serve ice cream!  A drizzle of chocolate syrup, perhaps a cookie garnish...nothing better on a hot day!

    I found reduced bananas at the same store this week. I bought a bag of seven ripe bananas for $.82. That's fourteen half banana servings that I can put on top of my cereal. I already froze them. Quite a bargain!
