The Magic of Frozen Bananas

The Magic of Frozen Bananas

With the hearty appetites in our busy vegan household, the freezers must always be chock-full of frozen bananas. We’re extremely grateful that we’re able to buy bananas by the box-load that are organic and locally-grown… Though we’re looking forward to the days when we have enough of our own veganic trees to keep our freezers stocked.

A naturally healthy and sustaining food, bananas give an instant energy boost that is long lasting, yet light on the digestion. They’re fantastic for smoothies, snacks and even raw vegan desserts. (See Marble “Nice Dream” Pie on page 7)

When you take the extra step of freezing them, bananas undergo a remarkable transformation that creates a whole other texture and flavor, and can be used in some fantastic ways that everybody ought to know about.

Following are some of our favorite ways to use frozen bananas, as well as some simple guidelines to make sure your banana freezing goes smoothly!
