Cranberry Juice Smoothie is healthy, low fat, low cal and delicious. Perfect if you are counting calories to lose weight and want a yogurt smoothie for breakfast or as an afternoon healthy snack idea.
Its also easy to turn this 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.
