Hello, December! My husband loves smoothies. I’m not so big on them; at least not in the form they’re usually promoted (surprise, surprise). Seeing as my husband has more than fifty different food allergies and most of those are to fresh fruits and vegetables, it can be a bit of a challenge to come up with new ideas. Add that to the fact that I never want to have a banana in a smoothie or more than five ingredients and you’ve got a complicated smoothie situation. Here’s one of my ultimate favourites: a red smoothie. It utilizes a few fresh cranberries, which is really my goal in life.
Take a break, put your feet up and take care of yourself with this easy smoothie because Leafy Cauldron is brewing up some fantastic holiday dishes for you in the next few weeks! Cookie season is upon us.
My Favourite Red Smoothie
1 cup cold, fresh water
1 tablespoon fresh, or frozen, cranberries
1 cup fresh, or frozen, raspberries
1 cup fresh, ripe pineapple
1 tablespoon flax meal or hemp hearts, blended in or on top
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Drink in your favourite cup, with your favourite straw.
