30 Bananas a Day!

I have to take my smoothies to work but after ten minutes or so they turn a nasty shade of brown and are so unappetising. Is there any way round this?? Because after 6 hours, they look just AWFUL.

I even used to keep mine in a cooler bag, but gave up and just started eating them plain. They will not last long without browning, even waiting 30 minutes makes a big difference. Oxidation is always happening with food left out whether it is blended or not.

Adding lemon helps in green juices ... but, I'm not sure how that would work with banana smoothies.
I bought the cheapest blender last week but lugging it back and forth to work would be a pain because I have enough documents to take!! I might have to switch to paw paw instead.
Or perhaps just take datorade to work? What sort of ratio dates:water?
Yeh when I've been drinking them I've thought to myself these can't be good anymore... I suppose plain yellow bananas last a lot longer but these bad boys are ripe and prime for blending. I think I'll stick with the banana smoothies for when I'm at home, glug datorade at work (though my shifts can be up to 13 hours...) may be take some less ripe bananas with me, I could mash them up with some dates.
I would have to be a very very VERY hungry durianrider to drink a banana smoothie that had oxidised and turned brown! :) I drink em soon after I blend em. Datorade keeps a lot better.
at first I thought it the dates, ya know, turning it brown... what's the best date:water ratio for 2L of the 'ade?
This is what I do;
Blend bananas on a slower Vitamix setting till smooth (try to get no air bubbles),
pour in glass jar all the way to the very top (completely inline with the glass rim),
close tight with it's screw on lid,
keep it cool till you leave the house for work, if your work has a fridge, even better!

-This works well for me. It does not turn brown for a long time. Looks fresh for hours & hours... :)

Good luck! ;D) Xo!
Exactly what I do - and I get the same result!
