Secret Banana Smoothie

by Laura

I am always looking for ways to use up overripe bananas.  I found this Banana Smoothie recipe over at Mom Spark.  The secret ingredient in this is almond extract.  I loved the flavor but there was too much almond extract in my opinion.  Next time I’d reduce it to at least 1/2 tsp.  I also think it would be good to reduce the milk a little and throw in some banana pie yogurt.  It’s a quick, easy, and delicious breakfast or snack.  I also have a yummy bananarita smoothie recipe that I LOVE if you want to check it out too.

Secret Banana Smoothie
1 cup milk  (I used skim)
1 cup ice (I used more to make it thicker)
1 banana
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp. sugar (you may need a little more if the banana isn’t sweet enough)
Combine ingredient in blender and blend until smooth.

Agreed, I used almond milk and just a few drops of vanilla. Very yummy and easy way to add a serving of fruit!

This actually sounds REALLY good today. There’s just nothing quite as good as making your own smoothies at home.
