If you are looking for a simple, yet delicious Cranberry Smoothie, this recipe is the perfect recipe to blend up for a great drink anytime. My Cranberry Truffle Smoothie and Cranberry Orange Smoothie are also absolutely delicious. But this cranberry smoothie recipe is a staple in our home during the holiday season.
Cranberry smoothies are so healthy and delicious and pack a nutritional punch! Cranberries are so healthy for you and add a delicious tart flavor to this smoothie that will leave your tastebuds so happy.
For added sweetness to offset the cranberries, I added raspberries to this smoothie. Raspberries perfectly compliment cranberries by adding sweetness without being overpowering.
A banana gives this smoothie a bit of thickness and sweetness. But if you find you need a bit more sweetness, you can add a touch of honey to this smoothie.
Once again I am using yogurt powder in this recipe. It is one of my favorite new ingredients in smoothies and you can snag a huge container HERE for not too much money especially compared to buying yogurt at the grocery store.
How to make a Cranberry Smoothie

If you use frozen raspberries or a frozen banana you won’t need to add ice, but if you use all fresh ingredients, you may want to add ice for a smooth, thick, cold smoothie.

Can you eat too many cranberries?
You would need to eat a LOT of cranberries to eat too many. Cranberries are likely fine for most people with little to no side effects. However, if you do manage to eat too many, you may end up with a mild upset stomach.
What blender is best for smoothies and milkshakes?
There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE. It is my favorite and I know you will love it too!
