Low levels of potassium are known to increase risk of muscle cramps, and bananas are a good source of potassium.

Freezing bananas: Peel the bananas and with a butter knife cut into small slices for smoothie machines and bigger sizes for baking. Place them in Ziploc freezer bags in a horizontal position and lay the bags flat in the freezer.
