We make a lot of smoothies around here. Most of the fruit that I use for them I buy frozen from Whole foods. All except the bananas. I get those at Costco since I can purchase a bunch of 6-7 bananas for $1.32.
That's a lot of bananas for us, since none of us just love to eat them. So I started freezing them. Here's what I do...
Mash them up, place them in one of my food saver bags and vaccuum seal them. I usually put three in each bag. By the way, I love my food saver. It was a birthday gift from my parents a few years ago. Saves so much space in my freezer.
Once they are frozen solid and I'm ready to make a smoothie, I take the whole block out and cut them up into bite size pieces.
Throw them in the magic bullet with the rest of the ingredients- this morning it was peaches, mangos, bananas and almond milk.
This little magic bullet is great. I bought it when my fourth blender died. I've had it for over a year now and use it all the time, more than any other blender I've owned and it's still going strong.
Quick and easy.
