Cranberry, Walnut & Apple Smoothie
This creamy Cranberry, Walnut & Apple Smoothie is perfect for the holidays and will really hit the spot with it’s warm & spicy fall flavours.

Cranberries are a fruit that tend to be very under-utilized and are often only eaten in cranberry sauce a couple of times a year at most which is a shame when they are so full of flavour and nutrients. They can help prevent urinary tract infections, reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease, slow the progression of tumours and aid dental health by preventing the binding of bacteria to the teeth.
They are great in both savoury and sweet dishes and as you will find when you try this recipe, are just perfect in a smoothie! If you have any cranberries leftover after Thanksgiving this is a great way to use them up. If you don’t have some, next time you are at the grocery store look out for them in the produce section. They keep easily for a couple of weeks in the fridge. Read more
