Looking for a yummy Cranberry Smoothie recipe? This is it!
We've been on a bit of a 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.
Cranberry Smoothie recipe
So what makes cranberries so special? They are a superfood fit to fight everything from colds to UTIs. 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.
This holiday smoothie not only has all the perfect flavors of the season, but also the vitamins your body needs to fight back against all the colds this time of year. Food really can be medicine!

Fresh & Healthy Cranberry Smoothie recipe
- ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
- ½ frozen banana
- ¼ cup frozen raspberries
- ¼ cup greek yogurt, or vegan yogurt
- ¼ cup orange juice
- Put all the ingredients in the blender and mix until smooth. If needed, add more orange juice to get the desired consistency. If vegan feel free to sub a vegan yogurt, coconut milk or just omit.
Raspberries will be expensive so I think a tablespoon of honey would be good or any other sort of sweetener to taste. I plan to make the smoothie without the honey and then to add it in and do it to taste.
