I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty bloated around the holidays. Although I love, love, love indulging in all the tasty delights, I know my body needs a break in between all the feasting.
To keep in the holiday spirit, I decided to include cranberries in this green smoothie. Cranberries have a ton of health benefits and outrank nearly every fruit and vegetable when it comes to antioxidants. Only blueberries beat out the almighty cranberry. I figure if I drink enough of this smoothie it’ll cancel out all the fat and calories I consume between November and December. Yes, I think so. Someone once told me if you believe it, then it’s true. But I think this someone was trying to explain why my failing students are surprised when they see their grades. Hah!
