Stock up on bananas
Frozen bananas, without the peel on them, can be used for smoothies, banana bread, banana muffins, or banana pancakes. You can substitute bananas in just about any recipe for a baked item that calls for fruit. Freeze the overripe brown ones that nobody wants to eat. Peel them first, because they are really hard to peel when they are frozen (I know, I tried!). For baking, you should thaw before using. For smoothies, just toss into the blender still frozen. It makes the smoothie thicker. ―Adie
