TruMoo Orange Scream is made with wholesome low-fat white milk and has  no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup! This is a great treat to get a little fruit in your little ghost or goblin.

This recipe is super easy to make and tastes great. It includes orange juice and banana plus a fun banana ghost to decorate the glass. You could whip this up in no time before trick or treating or as a fun after school snack!
