Secret Banana Smoothies

In Volume One - Issue Two of Penzeys One Magazine I ran across a simple yet intriguing recipe for Banana Smoothies. Unlike the Fruits & Greens Smoothies I made, this smoothie was very thin and only took a few ingredients. It is a perfect, refreshing drink and a great way to sneak in some calcium and fruits into your kiddies diets.

The secret to these Banana Smoothies is a small addition of almond extract.
