Spiced Cranberry Smoothie Recipe

One of my favorite holiday flavors is cranberry. Cranberry sauce, cranberry cake, cranberry tea, cranberry chutney… but I had never tried cranberries in one of my favorite breakfasts- a smoothie.

So one day, when I had some extra cranberry juice on hand I experimented blending my favorite tangy fruit into a creamy cool breakfast. The results? You’ll just have to try it and see!

The ingredients here may seem a bit of a funny combination. But trust me- they go together perfectly.
