Penzey's Secret Banana Smoothie

by Divine Domesticity on September 16, 2008

Bananas are standard fare for breakfast at our house. My daughter, Violet, and I share a banana each morning while I chug down a large coffee with hazelnut creamer. Have I ever mentioned that I like to let my coffee sit until it is cold, then I chug it like a crazy frat boy? I do.

Even I get sick of bananas after a while, so this is a welcome change. In case you were wondering, the secret is a tiny bit of almond extract.
