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)
1/2 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.
