Blueberry Banana and Oatmeal Smoothie in glass

Are you picky about how ripe you like a banana to be before you eat it?

Sometimes I have to buy them a little green so they won’t get too ripe before I have a chance to eat them.

There’s a particular point where a banana gets a little to ripe for my taste buds.  But I hate to let them go to waste.

So I’ll convince myself that I’ll just let them get really ripe and then I’ll make banana bread.

Here are more recipes with bananas you may like “Double Banana Pancakes“, “Browned Butter Banana Dessert” and “Bourbon Glazed Bananas and Streusel Dessert“.

Then 9 times out of 10 I’ll run out of time to make banana bread, see a couple gnats hanging around the super ripe bananas, and out to the trash they go.

When bananas start getting ripe faster than they can be eaten, an option is to store them in the freezer for use in smoothies.

Just peel the banana and squeeze lime or lemon juice all over them, put each one in a separate snack size plastic zipper bag, and then store them in the freezer.

They hold their color really well when using the citrus juice.

So here’s a smoothie recipe for using up those bananas if you have too many, or even if you don’t have too many, it’s a great breakfast on-the-go.

It tastes best when the smoothie is really cold so I like to use frozen blueberries and a frozen banana if I have one.

Here are more recipes with blueberries you may like “Blueberry Limeade“, “Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake with Lemon Glaze” and “Mango, Blueberry and Ginger Galette“.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
