Chocolate Cranberry Smoothie Recipe

This chocolate cranberry smoothie is the perfect smoothie for winter!

Every year, I stock up on fresh cranberries. I keep them in my freezer and enjoy them for as long as possible into the new year. This is a habit I try very hard to remember for many seasonal foods. But cranberries are special. They have an amazing nutrient content, and so does this smoothie!

Recipe Tips

  • This is tart and sweet at the same time. In fact, if you don’t add any sweeteners, your first sip may take you by surprise. But then you realize it’s actually quite sweet enough.
  • If you don’t use the mango, I strongly suggest the sweetener.
  • If you do use the mango, try the smoothie first before adding anything else. I think most of you will find it to be sweet enough without any added sugar.

Cranberry Nutrition

  • Cranberries are high in vitamins C, E, K and copper.
  • They are high in antioxidants.
  • Help prevent UTI’s.

  1. Do you get the juice from the pomagrant seeds or just put them in whole? Recipe sounds delish!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Yes, from the arils (seeds). But only the seeds. Not the white membrane or skin.

  2. Thanks to the yummy new use for pomegranates!

  3. Yum that looks great. Don’t have pomegranates so will have to substitute. Also you could add a date for natural (yummy) sweetness

  4. How would this do to freeze?
    4 servings is too much at one time.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      I would just cut the recipe in half. You can freeze it, but it would be best to then just eat it as popsicles. Thawing it would not work well.

  5. Can I leave out the mango or what can I substitute. I don’t like mango or papaya.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Try banana instead.

  6. Definitely trying this tonight and maybe for breakfast for tomorrow as well. Smoothies are one of my favorite things and this looks so good!

  7. This looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it.

  8. I am allergic to bananas. I have a really hard time finding green smoothie recipes without banana in them…Any ideas for a substitution?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mango is supposed to be the go-to substitute for bananas in many recipes.
