Super Veggie Smoothie: Cranberry Cleanser
I hope like me you had a wonderful Thanksgiving - filled with family, friends, and of course, lots of delicious food!
However, if you had a little too much gluten free stuffing and pumpkin pie yesterday you might want to start the day with something light, refreshing, nutrient packed and soothing to the digestive system.
Cranberries are not just the perfect accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner, they are a nutritional powerhouse, containing one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants in any fruit. They are also anti-inflammatory, low GI, and high in Vitamin C.
I've combined them with sweet, skin loving, fiber rich apples and mineral packed zucchini, and a touch of fresh grated ginger is great for soothing and cleansing the digestive system.
1 cup fresh cranberries
1 apple, roughly chopped
1/2 zucchini, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1.5 cups filtered water
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
