Here is a Cranberry juice and Orange Smoothie that is tasty and satisfying anytime of year. Cranberries are around all year but we often don’t pay much attention until the holidays. That’s unfortunate because these little red fruits are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. According to Wikipedia, 95% of all cranberries are processed after harvesting and only 5% are sold fresh. That’s not too surprising since fresh cranberries are way to sour to be eaten raw. But in this smoothie recipe along with Oranges, they are great
Its also easy to turn this tasty smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
