Christmas Cranberry Smoothie

Hi Everyone,

I figured after all the homemade cookies, boxed chocolates and Christmas parties, it would be time to enjoy a sweet, tangy holiday drink that is completely guilt-free.  I know after this past month, I am in need of something good for me!  So today I bring you, what I like to call my Christmas Smoothie.

As I am sitting here writing this, I am drinking my smoothie!  The best description I can give is that it is creamy, a little sweet and has a slight, very slight pucker from the cranberries.  I think it is absolutely a perfect cranberry smoothie!  If you like cranberries, then you will like this smoothie!

To make this smoothie I used Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice, which is only 5 calories for a cup!!  Crazy!!!  Plus I used 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, unsweetened coconut milk from the carton and I threw in a few fresh cranberries for a little specks of color!!  I debated on throwing a frozen banana in it, but I really wanted a light cranberry drink, nothing to crazy!!  Something I could have after dinner or work, knowing I am getting a healthy drink that will fill me up and that it will make me in the holiday spirit.

I also think if you don’t have unsweetened coconut milk, that almond milk, non-fat milk or even soy milk would taste great!  Get vanilla flavor, that would be fantastic in this drink.  Now I always get asked about the coconut milk.  I use Trader Joe’s brand, it’s in a carton, located in an aisle with the almond milks, ect… and is only 60 calories a cup.  Do not use canned coconut milk, that would be horrible!  You’ll just end up with a greasy smoothie!!!

You probably noticed from the picture that the sprinkles on the glass look funny.  You must forgive me, I am so horrible when it comes to decorating cups.  I do try, but those darn little candy balls fall off.  I poured them in the bowl and they bounced everywhere!  I know I”ll be cleaning up white balls for months to come!!  lol

I thought I was done with my Christmas shopping, come to find out I forgot one gift so I am off tonight to find something.

Have a great Thursday!

Happy Holidays!!
