Cranberry Apple Smoothie

Enlighten your tastebuds with a sweet and tart smoothie, filled with classic fall fruits.

Cranberry Apple Smoothie

There is a way to both enjoy smoothies and explore the world of cranberries, outside the canned cranberry jelly at the same time. This recipe is a nod to Thanksgiving, fall, and nutrition all in one.

Cranberries are a beauty booster food in many ways but my favorite qualities are their abundance of antioxidants, vitamin C levels, and of course, I can’t leave out the culinary glory of cranberries. In their true berry form, they are a bright and tart contrast to the heavy foods of fall. Try this out and see how well cranberries can stand on their own.

  1. I’ve never seen a cranberry smoothie recipe before. Thanks for posting this, because I’m sick of my usual banana/mango/spinach concoction. Looking forward to trying this tomorrow morning!
