Organic Cranberry Smoothie

IMG_1884

Since it is cranberry season, I thought it would be very appropriate to make a cranberry smoothie. Cranberries are second to blueberries in their antioxidant benefits and are only 45 calories per cup. I used European style yogurt, because that is what I had available, but I prefer the protein rich Greek yogurt.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 organic Gala or Fuji apple
  • 1/2 frozen organic banana
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1/2 organic European style plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 organic nonfat milk
  • 2 to 3 packets of Stevia

Directions:

Mix in a blender, cranberries, apple, banana and ice cubes. Then add yogurt, milk, and Stevia.
