When the kids are not around, the shelf life of fresh bananas seems to shorten very quickly. My favorite way to make them last longer is to preserve them for future yummy snacks! Preserved bananas last a long time and are still super yummy and nutritious!

Fresh bananas are super yummy! However, when I buy bananas in bulk and the kids are not here to help me eat them, they seem to go bad fast. I like to preserve bananas into future super yummy snacks!
When there is a really good sale on bulk bananas, I like to stock up. Our store occasionally has large produce bags filled with bananas that they think is going bad. These bags sell for 99 cents per bag! Can’t go wrong with all that potassium! However, when you buy so many that they are going bad faster than you can eat them, you need to find a way to preserve them.
To preserve bananas, I like to either dehydrate the bananas for quick, easy snacks, or freeze them for future use!
The first way I like to preserve bananas is to dehydrate them. For quick, easy snacks, I like to dehydrate bananas! They also make great additions to oatmeal, cereal, trail mixes, and more!
Another way to preserve bananas is to freeze them. Bananas that are closer to going bad than others get frozen in our house. That’s because they are sweeter in flavor and do very well in baked goods and smoothies!
