Cranberry Smoothie
With the holidays still in swing, I want to be able to enjoy all of the different holiday flavors while still eating healthy for the most part, with some room for indulgence. I love making lots of different smoothie combinations and just created this delicious cranberry smoothie which comes together in just a couple of minutes and has that awesome tart cranberry flavor.

To make this cranberry smoothie, I used Ocean Spray® Pure Cranberry Juice. It is made with 100% cranberry juice and no sugar added which I love. Along with being tasty on its own and in this smoothie, it is also great whisked into a dressing for a fall or holiday salad recipe. For a little mocktail, you can also mix it with sparkling water which I love to do because sometimes, you want a little something special to drink.

Each bottle of this Ocean Spray® Pure Cranberry Juice is made from the juice of over 850 cranberries. It has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives added and has just 60 calories per serving. I love using fresh cranberries, dried cranberries and cranberry juice in my cooking for lots of delicious cranberry flavor.

I remember my parents buying Ocean Spray® juice when I was growing up and it is a brand that we trust. I always liked the tart flavors of cranberry juice and preferred juices like the cranberry cocktail instead of a much sweeter variety like cranberry raspberry. You can buy the Ocean Spray® Pure Cranberry Juice at Target, Kroger or Walmart.

For the cranberry smoothie, I wanted to balance the tart flavor with a little bit of sweetness but still not add any sugar. I used frozen berries to go along with the cranberry juice along with collagen peptides for protein and to make the smoothie more filling. Such an easy recipe that tastes delicious and is perfect for the holidays or any time of year really. With the juice having no added sugar and being rich in antioxidants, I would add this to my smoothies year-round.
