Boost your energy in the morning with this Super Energy Cranberry Apple Smoothie that combines the tartness of the cranberry with the sweetness of the apple, the flavor of the coconut milk and a pinch of cinnamon. This is a perfect way to start your day during wintertime!
I know that this time of the year we are all planning to boost our energy, eat healthier and make good choices regarding foods. So, for this reason I brought to you today a delicious and healthy Cranberry Apple Smoothie recipe. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and when we start the day right, we are more encouraged to continue eating healthy throughout the day.
I love smoothies because you simply can dump all the good and nutritious ingredients your have on your fridge in the blend for 1 minute and done! You will have a perfect breakfast on-the-go or maybe a mid-morning/afternoon snack. Also smoothies are great to naturally boost your energy, since they are packed with good-for-you nutrients.
Talking about good nutrients in your smoothie, this recipe with cranberries is what you need. These berries are known for being rich in vitamins and antioxidants, for supporting the immune system, for their anti-cancer properties and for having cleansing powers. Wow… All that? Yes, I’m telling you that these little red berries do wonders. After all that, I guess I just convinced you to make this smoothie, right?
This refreshingly healthy smoothie is the perfect combination of the sweetness from the apple with the tartness of the cranberry. However, if your apple is not so sweet you may need to add a teaspoon of maple syrup or honey to adjust the flavor. On top of that I added a pinch of cinnamon to give the hit taste we all need during wintertime. So, I am sure you will enjoy this Cranberry Apple Smoothie and it will help you to keep your 2017 resolutions of eating healthier.
