Or are you one that prefers to skip Dairy yet you keep coming across Smoothie Recipes that include milk?
You are not alone. Williams-Sonoma has an initiative seeking a similar “not so typical smoothie”.
AND I HAVE THE ANSWER…
I present to you a delicious Cranberry & Citrus Green Smoothie for the first day of winter!
You might remember my favorite holiday side dish that I shared in November. This colorful smoothie was inspired by my Aunt’s Cranberry Relish Recipe.
Using a few of the same fresh ingredients from her recipe that are so sweet in season this time of year, along with fresh Spinach, I created a smoothie free of dairy with hidden greens that screams “winter”.
– 1 1/2 Cup of Frozen Cranberries
– 2 Apples with Peel (I used Gala)
– 2 Cups Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
– 2 Handfuls of Spinach
Optional: 2 Teaspoons of Splenda Sugar for a Sweeter Smoothie
Add ingredients to blender in order listed above; blend well. Serves two.
The official taste tester at my house approves this recipe. In the words of my twenty year old son, “This tastes just like a smooth Cranberry Relish. It’s so good and you can’t even tell there’s Spinach in it.”
Is there a specific fruit that reminds you of your favorite season?
Happy Winter to YOU!
