Banana Pumpkin Smoothie
Very Good 4.7/5
(13 ratings)

The frozen fruit helps give the smoothie a thick texture; chilling the pumpkin ensures the smoothie stays cold when you blend it. The combination of banana, pumpkin, yogurt, and orange juice give this breakfast beverage 740mg of potassium per serving.
