Cranberry Blueberry Smoothie
This Cranberry Blueberry Smoothie has none of those in there! BUT...this is what it DOES have in it...
1 C Organic Cranberry Juice
1/2 C Frozen Blueberries
1/2 Frozen Banana
1/2 Scoop of Garden Of Life's Raw Perfect Food Apple Flavor
I truly believe that foods are healing and also preventative! I'm sure you know that Cranberries are an amazing food! They help treat urinary tract infections, they help fight cancer and heart disease, help with kidney and bladder problems, help prevent dental problems, they promote weight loss, they have anti-aging properties, they improve mental health, strengthen immune systems, and relieve skin conditions.
We had some in the house because of the issues my husband has been going thru and I decided to incorporate some into my smoothie this morning. This smoothie tastes WONDERFUL by the way!
As for the Blueberries...they pack a powerful punch, too! Blueberries are high in anti-oxidants, they help preserve your vision, help banish belly fat, they are good for bone health, Blueberries help relieve constipation, they are known as a good "brain food", they are Heart Healthy, they are a Cancer Fighter, they help lower blood sugar, and they help with Bladder issues.
Cranberries and Blueberries! My little fighters for the day! Paired with a spec of Banana and GoL Apple Flavored Perfect Food...YAY!
