We love this recipe because it’s creamy and super easy to whip up for a quick snack or breakfast. The cranberries are tart and juicy and give it a unique spin on our morning smoothies.

Smoothies are best when they are served immediately after making them. If you need to store yours for later, be sure to freeze it instead of storing in the fridge. 

Freeze into ice cube trays or popsicle molds for a delicious treat!

FAQ (frequently asked questions)

Can this be made thicker for a smoothie bowl?

Definitely! If you want it thicker, I would suggest reducing the orange juice to ½ cup.

Can this be made with fresh cranberries?

Yes, you can, but it will not have that same frozen texture. I would suggest adding some ice cubes to the blender if you want to use fresh berries instead of frozen ones.

Is there a way to make this without orange juice?

A great substitution for orange juice is to use cranberry juice. You might want to add more honey to help with some of the extra tart flavors.
