For the thickest, coldest shakes and smoothies, freeze the fruit in chunks, including the bananas. Freeze fruit (whole, sliced or diced) in a single layer on a tray or baking sheet, so it doesn’t clump. Then transfer the fruit to zip-lock bags, to have it readily on hand in the freezer. You’ll need a powerful blender, and some liquid to get things moving. Beverage basics, pg. 386 in 12,167 Kitchen and Cooking Secrets.
