How To Peel Frozen Bananas

Banana’s are one of my favourite foods!! They can be used in such a variety of recipes, from smoothies, to breads or just simply sautéed on their own. However, as we all know banana’s have a short shelf life and keeping a small supply in the freezer at all times is the best way to always have this fruit on hand.

I used to peel, cut and freeze bananas, since the idea of peeling a frozen solid banana seemed like a lot more work than this method. However, once I figured out how to work with bananas in a frozen state, I realized that it wasn’t difficult at all and in fact took far less time and effort than my original peel, cut, freeze method!

How To Peel Frozen Bananas

Step 1: Break apart your bunch of ripe bananas so that all bananas are separate. Freeze the individual bananas for at least 24 hours.

Step 2: Remove as many bananas as you need from the freezer. Cut each banana in half and leave on the counter for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Next, score each banana down the center on both sides, only cutting deep enough to cut through the peel but not the fruit.

Step 4: Then use this scored area as a place to get your knife in under the banana peel and simply just peel back the banana peel.

And voila! Perfect frozen bananas, peel-free in less than 7 minutes.
