This Strawberry Blueberry smoothie includes Cranberry Juice for liquid instead of filtered water and the results are both tasty and very healthy.
Cranberry juice is not only tasty, but also very healthy with a mix of natural vitamins and minerals, dietary fiber and antioxidants that help fight bladder and kidney infections, and protect you against some cancers and heart disease. And blueberries, which have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruits, also help boost your immune system and fight off infections.
Its also easy to turn this strawberry blueberry 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 noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results. You can order Chia directly from Amazon by clicking the link in the recipe below.
