What says festive like a cranberry smoothie? We used fresh cranberries in this recipe, but you could also try it with the canned variety. Fresh cranberries are lower in calories and have more of the antioxidant power retained, but they may not be easily found all year round. The wheat germ adds a strong satisfying wheat flavor. If this is not your thing, optionally you can leave out the wheat germ. You can also try it with another additive such as chia seeds or flax oil, which will not add a lot of extra flavor. The stevia sweetens up the tart berries for a tasty holiday treat that will impress!

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup cranberries
1 tbsp wheat germ
1/2 apple
1/2 cup apple juice
1 packet stevia
1/2 cup ice cubes
Instructions: 
  1. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.

To significantly reduce preparation and blending time try using one of our recommended high end best blenders for smoothies.
