A little Bit of Everything Smoothie

image

Hey everyone!

So, I was going through what I had in my refrigerator to make a smoothie.  I used cranberries, carrots, kale, bananas, blackberries, and oatmeal.  I also used some grape juice as well.  I have a recipe book that suggested using oatmeal in smoothies.  The smoothie actually tasted pretty good, but consistency was like apple sauce.  I’m not sure why, but maybe next time I can blend it longer.

Smoothies with Cranberries

Hi everyone!

Smoothies are a go-to healthy option for meals, snacks, and desserts.  I started using fresh cranberries in my smoothies two Christmases ago.  We get cranberries around the holidays, so this time around, I stocked up on them.  Cranberries can last a year frozen.  So, I have been enjoying them since Thanksgiving.  Cranberries,  like other berries, have great health benefits (respiratory health, urinary tract health, antioxidants).  Here are the ingredients of one of my smoothies (100% apple juice not pictured.)
