Whichever works best for you, this spinach smoothie recipe makes good use of spinach, Cranberry Juice, and mixed berries.
Did you know that just 5% of all cranberries harvested are sold fresh? The remaining 95% of the crop is processed into juice, sauce, and dried cranberry products. I didn’t know that the sauce and juice were that popular.
