Pumpkins are a good source of vitamins A, C, E, and B, and dietary fiber, too. It offers key minerals and trace elements like iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, manganese, sodium, and zinc. In many cultures, we usually use this seasonal vegetable to make soups or to bake cakes. But it's in its raw form that pumpkin delivers its beneficial components in optimal, unprocessed form. This smoothie mixes all the power of pumpkin, carrot, and peaches. The banana adds creaminess and sweetness to this juice. The delicious result is almost a dessert!
