Don't go bananas


I have a confession. I like bananas. But I like them to be slightly green; no ripe bananas for me, and forget it if they're overripe. So what do I do with bananas that have been sitting on the counter a tad too long? Peel them, throw them into plastic bags and store them in the freezer. They make the perfect smoothie ---- put frozen bananas in the blender, add a little orange juice and you have a quick pick-me-up. It's especially delicious after a sweaty yoga class!

The same goes for berries that are about to go south. And check out smoothie recipes for inspiration.
