Today’s smoothie combines both spinach and cranberry. While you might think of this partnership as being meant only for Thanksgiving, this smoothie is great any time of year.
Raw spinach gives us bone-healthy vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, and calcium; heart-healthy folate, potassium, and vitamin B6, all which impact our daily well being and fight against disease. Cranberry offers some of the highest amounts of antioxidants to fight cell damage — and many other healthy nutrients that fight cell damage.
-1/2 cup of cranberries (fresh or frozen)
-1 cup of fresh spinach
-1/2 cup of cold cranberry juice
-1 cup of plain low-fat yogurt
-1 tablespoon of Chia seed
