This smoothie is packed with potassium, calcium, vitamin A and C and can be a great afternoon snack when you pair it with a serving of nuts or whole-grain crackers. Consider squeezing your own orange juice and substituting different fruits (especially for ones that are in season) to make this recipe your own. Try pears instead of bananas.
