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