You can never have too much of a good thing, or so they say – and that is certainly true when it comes to Chiquita bananas!

Their fantastic creamy taste and the health benefits from eating them help to explain why they are the world’s favorite fruit. And there’s no need to worry about what to do with overripe bananas either, because they won’t go to waste – just freeze them to preserve them, and you have the makings of the best banana ice cream ever.

Bananas are packed full of yummy goodness – they’re high in important vitamins (C and B6) and the feel-good protein tryptophan, as well as key minerals (potassium and magnesium) and soluble fiber. To ensure you get your fair share and help to ensure zero food waste, just follow this simple guide and click on the great recipes below.

  1. Peel the banana, and break into chunks or coins
  2. Place the pieces on a tray in a single layer, not touching each other
  3. Pop the tray in the freezer to flash-freeze
  4. When frozen, gather the bits into a container for storage
