If I just bought a bunch of bananas today and will be good for tomorrow to add on my pwo shake, how long should I keep on the freezer the rest of the unconsumed bananas and still be good to use. Thanks!

Frozen bananas stay good for months.

theyll turn brown pretty fast, but theyll still be good for a long long time.

however you can leave them on the counter for a few days before you need to put them in the freezer

and on the contrary, if you want to ripen them fast, put em in a brown paper bag

where did you here this.
the optimum temperature for a banana to be kept to prevent ripening is 17degrees celsius. over or under this results in greater ripening of the banana. im not sure if this changes once the skin has been removed however

I peel mine, break them apart (cutting seems to release juice and makes the pieces stick together more), throw them in a ziplock bag and put them in the freezer. They stay nice and yellow for weeks that way.

Personal experience.

And I peel them first, put in ziploc bag and seal out most of the air. If you freeze them with skin on, the skin blackens though.

Yep, I buy like 30 bananas when I go to the store and people look at me funny.

When you defrost a frozen banana it'll turn mushy I think...

yeah i end up using the frozen ones in shakes or in banana bread/baked goods.

def remove the peel first as its a lot easier to remove before the banana is frozen

This is what I do too, one frozen banana is the perfect base for a shake.
