Brighten up your morning with this flavorful cranberry orange smoothie! A cranberry smoothie that’s thick, creamy and satisfying.
- 1 1/4 cups almond milk*
- 1 cup frozen cranberries
- 2 cups fresh orange slices (1–2 oranges)
- 1 large banana, frozen
- zest of 1/2 orange
- 1 cup ice cubes
- optional: 2 tsp maple syrup or honey**
- Add all of the smoothie ingredients to a blender, in the order listed. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy (use a tamper if necessary). If things aren’t blending up nicely, add a bit more milk. Enjoy!
If you want to make extra to freeze for later, pour the leftover smoothie into an ice cube tray, and freeze for 4-5 hours before emptying and saving in a Ziploc freezer bag. To blend up again, throw 5-6 cubes into a blender. You may need to add a bit of extra milk!
*If you don’t like almond milk, you can use regular dairy milk or coconut milk.
**If you like your smoothies a little sweeter, I would recommend 2 tsp of maple syrup or honey. Also, if you’re skipping the banana, add an extra 1/2 cup of oranges and 2 tsp of sweetener.
