A slightly sweet, slightly tart refreshing seasonal smoothie.
12 ounce water
¼ cup fresh cranberries
1 orange, peeled
2 tablespoon walnuts
1 tablespoon honey, (or agave)
½ teaspoon vanilla, (or 1/2 vanilla bean)
7 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients in Vitamix, or high speed blender
Trying this purty quick here!
I forgot to ask.. Do you really need the walnuts?
I am so buying cranberries today. This looks awesome! I can honestly say I don't think I have ever eaten (drank) raw cranberries. I have always just only had the cranberry sauce. Now if I can only find them on sale...even better.
Oh and I forgot to say that I strained mine (I didn't have any ice) to remove the cranberry grit. I have a 1960's Vitamix so I'm curious if you guys get it smooth with a newer one. I could always add the ice after straining for a real julius! Lovely pink color by the way!
Yum-O!!!! It tastes like a cran-orange julius! I doubled up on the vanilla because have alcohol free and used less water. Thanks soooo much! This one definitely gets 5 stars
This is very tasty! Next time I will do a bit less water, perhaps just a cup, so it is a bit thicker. It is very refreshing!!!
I love cranberries!!! I wonder if frozen cranberries would be good instead of using ice(I got out of habit of using it and just not a fan of it in my smoothies anymore). Thinking a little nutmeg or cinnamon would be good with this as well.
Reminds me I need to buy more cranberries, I eat many this time of year :)
