I have 8 very ripe bananas that need using up - too ripe for me to eat (I like them bright yellow!) - but apart from Banana Bread/Loaf I don't know what to do with them. I know the banana loaf will freeze well, but has anyone got any other ideas?

Smoothies? I think they would freeze too - at least into ice lollies. Just what you need right now!

Peel, cut into pieces and put in the freezer in a plastic bag. When frozen hard put some pieces into a straight-sided container and whizz with your Bamix (or other branded stick mixer) until completely processed. The resulting mixture has the texture of soft-serve icecream without the dairy or sugar. Really nice for the kids in this appalling heat-wave!!! I usually do this with my bananas as soon as they get all brown and have it on hand whenever I need it.
