New Cranberry Super Green Smoothie

We've been gettin' our cranberry on with this new morning smoothie recipe.  Cranberries are powerful anti-oxidants and are anti-inflammatory to boot.  Since they are seasonal, and available fresh in the markets now, this is the moment for cranberry smoothies.

As always, we load our smoothies full of healthy super greens, veggies and a few fruits for good taste.

Here's our recipe...

Cranberry Super Green Smoothie

30 raw cranberries
1 apple cored and seeded
15 grapes
1 small lemon or 1/2 large lemon, much of the peel cut away, seeds removed
1 cup celery
1 great big handful of spinach and arugula
1 small head of romaine
3 1" chunks of cucumber
1 carrot cut into 4 piece
1/2 tangerine peel (optional, if you're healing eczema)
1 cup filtered water or more as needed


Place all the ingredients except the banana in a food processor and process until everything has been fully broken down.  Add more water if needed.

Divide the contents into three containers.  Cover two tightly and place them in the fridge for the next two mornings.  Place the contents of the third container into a blender or bullet with 1/2 banana and process until smooth.   Each morning add 1/2 banana to the second or third smoothie and blend fresh (again, adding water if needed).
