Cranberry Smoothie recipe

Hey y’all!

We’ve been on a bit of rollercoaster of getting sick since Labor Day.  It got worse after the boy’s birthday when the entire family got hit with three bad illnesses in a row.   I’ve heard this just happens when you have kids, but as someone who seems to get sick a little easier than most folks, I’ve been getting everything they get.

To fight back I’m trying to get some extra vitamins during this busy and germy season!  Did you know that cranberries are not just pretty on the holiday table but also nutritional powerhouses… making them a perfect smoothie to boost your immune system!  This Healthy Cranberry Smoothie recipe not only tastes good, but is also really good for you.

So what makes cranberries so special?  They are a superfood fit to fight everything from colds to UTI’s!  They are filled with vitamin C which is a powerful and natural antioxidant that can even boost the immune system.

This smoothie also has some good old fashioned orange juice for even more vitamin C power.

    Adding raspberries into the blender is a great idea to balance the tartness from cranberries!
