What to do with them. I dont care for them as they give me indigetion. I wanted to dehydrate and make leather but from what I have been reading it does not come out good by itself. Anyone here have a great recipe so i can use them up fast? I must have at least 8 of them.

Why not just put them in your green smoothies ~ Cathy
Put them in your freezer to make icecream out of them or for smoothies on another day. I froze 150 bananas at one time and I am now down to my last gallon size zip loc of them.

If you want to make leather with them, do so, then use them to make Alissa's strawberry crepes, eat as is or, as others have said, freeze and use for "ice cream".

I never thought of that. Banana ice cream sounds delicious. Do u freeze with peel on?

take the peel off and freeze in the storage unit of choice (ziploc bags, containers, etc.)
Also, don't necessarily take anyone's word on dehydrating them...I LOVE banana leather and dehydrated banana chips! No, they're not the crunchy kind in the stores because theirs are fried - but they are a nice and chewy treat - remind me of those banana Laffy Taffys that I used to eat but without that "artificial banana" flavor! :)
But yeah, make Alissa's strawberry crepes with the banana leather too!
And the frozen bananas can be used for ice cream, thrown into smoothies, or you can make shakes. My favorite shake is a frozen banana or two, a handful of cashews (optional, but makes it a little creamier), ice, about 1/4-1/2 tsp. of vanilla and a dash of sea salt (opt.) and I add a little water or nut milk to help it turn and just blend until it's smooth and thick and delicious - sometimes I add a little maca and it's like an old fashioned malt! You can make it chocolate by adding cacao powder or carob and give Wendy's Frosty a run for their money or make it any flavor you want!
