Tis the season to gather and freeze cranberries. I buy a bag every week before thanksgiving. After thanksgiving When they are sold cheap, I buy several bags each week to freeze until they are gone. Although, do like them fresh in my juicer and in my Brussel Sprouts and Cranberries recipe, I like them best in smoothies. My grandmother use to make this frozen cranberry salad for Thanksgiving that was incredible! I’m sure it was very sweet. It may of even had marshmallows. This smoothie is not sweet, but it reminds me of that cranberry salad. This smoothie is made with Coconut Kefir, which I teach you how to make on this blog. It’s like coconut yogurt. If you don’t want to make Coconut Kefir, you can use coconut milk or cream. I also use vital proteins collagen peptides. I take these every day to help my joints, hair, skin and nails. You may omit this ingredient if you don’t want to use them. They are pricey, but worth every penny.
1 cup Coconut Kefir or Coconut Milk
1 cup Frozen Pineapples
1/4 cup Frozen Cranberries
1/4 cup Frozen Blueberries
1 cup Filtered Water
1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, optional
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
