How to Freeze Bananas for Protein Shakes

Peel and slice bananas, then spread the banana slices out in a single layer on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Make sure the banana slices are not touching each other so they don't stick together when they freeze. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the banana slices are frozen. Transfer the frozen banana slices to an airtight, freezer-safe container or bag. Label and date the bag before placing it in the freezer. For the best quality, plan to use frozen banana slices within two months of freezing.

Can I Swap in a Different Nut Butter?

Yes, you can! Make sure you use a nut butter labeled "natural" and confirm that the ingredients are just nuts and salt (or no salt).

Can I Double This Recipe?

This recipe easily doubles to make two servings. Make the doubled recipe at once and serve immediately. To make it in advance, pour into Mason jars with tight-fitting lids. Store in the freezer. The night before serving, transfer the jars to the fridge to thaw.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
