Just got back from my favorite market and I scored two boxes of organic bananas for $2.00. If you’re a homemade blended formula mom/caregiver, like me, you know it can be costly. I’m always looking for ways to save. So, when my husband called me this morning and told me to get over to Sprout’s because they had two boxes of bananas waiting for me I couldn’t wait to get there. When he saw two boxes of ripe bananas looking like they were stacked to get rid of darling husband spoke to the produce manager to tell him what I do….. our produce manager then proceeded to tell him that he can’t sell bananas with spots because no one will buy them. Well SCORE for Karsten and I because that’s when they’re ripe and easy for him to digest.
I’m going to peel some and freeze them for smoothies for the rest of the family…
And use the rest for his formulas!
In case you don’t know, if you decide to use frozen bananas in your blended formula make sure that you bring your formula back to room temperature before giving it. Cold formula can cause painful stomach cramping because it is going straight into the stomach.
Try it out next time you’re in the store, talk to your grocery or produce manager, maybe you’ll save some money!
