It’s cranberry season again and that makes me very happy because there are so many smoothie recipes I want to make with cranberries. I can’t seem to find them in the Northeast when they aren’t in season. This time, I’ve already started freezing them so I have them on-hand all the time. That way I can keep making smoothie recipes with cranberries all year long.
Have you ever tried freezing cranberries? They turn into little red marbles. Kind of fun. If you haven’t tried freezing fruits or veggies you can learn how to here.
I’ve also realized there aren’t many chocolate smoothie recipes on this site. Which is kind of funny considering I’m a chocoholic. Starting today with this chocolate cranberry smoothie, I promise to add more chocolate smoothie recipes.
This delicious smoothie combines the sweet richness of cacao (or chocolate) with the tartness of cranberries. A hint of cinnamon adds a little warmth to the flavor combination.
The goodness doesn’t stop there.
Did you know cacao powder has more antioxidants than wine or tea? It’s also packed with nutrients that help lower blood pressure and improve your mood.
Cranberries have tons of antioxidant properties. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that can help prevent inflammation around the gums, stomach, large intestine (colon) and cardiovascular system. Cranberries are also known to help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) by not allowing bacteria to stick to the lining of the bladder and ureters.
