Healing Cranberry Cleanser

Serves 2


Ingredients

  • 2 cups kale, fresh
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 2 bananas

Instructions

Blend kale and water until smooth. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again. * Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold. TIP: Keep as much of the orange pith (the white part) on to add nutritional benefits. Because of the cranberries, your smoothie may turn out more "purple-ish."

    I bought a bag of cranberries and found this smoothie and decided to try it today. I was worried it might be sour…. this was YUM! ;-)

    Question- So if I buy fresh fruit and freeze it and throw into my smoothies- does it negatively impact the nutrients if frozen?

      Hey Deanna.

      Not at all. Fresh and frozen are great options. :)

      Hey Jess.

      Thanks for the question. I would suggest using mangos or peaches in places of oranges. )

    Are dried cranberries ok to use?

      Hey Kristen.

      We usually use fresh or frozen, but if dried cranberries sounds good, go for it! :)

    Can you please tell me the calorie count in this shake? Thanks it looks good

      Hi Michele.

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data and the phone apps My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    My eyes are tired, but are there any nutritional information on these recipes? However, I’m looking forward to trying them.

    I am new to green smoothies – and LOVED this one. Such a bright flavor. We used baby kale because it tends to be a little milder – my husband and I loved this one, as did my 6 year old and 2 year old (who sadly tend to reject all things green). Your recipes are great. Thanks for helping to get our mornings off to a great start.

      Cheers to you and yours!
