Best healing recipe for cranberry smoothie with plant based milk, banana and raspberries.

Recently, I discovered these delightful bright-red-colored berries. And I fell in love with them. Seriously. For my entire life, I have known for a dried version of them until last autumn. My mom’s friend lives in a mountain region that abounds with wild cranberries. So she served us a baked pumpkin topped with these small extraordinary berries with a delicate sour taste. Since then, they became one of my favorite fruit I incorporate in my daily dose of vitamins and minerals.

Cranberries are known for being slightly tart but the banana and agave syrup balance them out. They add just the perfect amount of sweetness to help compensate their bitterness.

Cranberry smoothie benefits

Cranberries offer you a range of health benefits. These refreshing tart and tasty berries are a rich source of important nutrients, especially Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful, natural antioxidant that is essential for the maintenance of your skin, bones, and muscles. In addition, it improves your iron absorption and boosts your immune system. They also abound in manganese, copper, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, and fiber. They contain unique phytonutrients, A-type proanthocyanidins, that help you prevent Escherichia Coli and reduce the risk of any UTIs. Equally important to note is that these powerful berries may also reduce the risk of stomach cancer and ulcers. Not to mention their benefit for your heart health and regulating your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

    Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Use 3/4 cup frozen cranberries (you can use fresh too), 1/2 frozen raspberries, 1 banana, 1 cup of almond milk (use any plant-based milk of choice, maybe try this homemade cashew milk or oat milk), and 1/8 cup agave syrup. Blend until smooth and creamy.

What does cranberry cure?

The antioxidants in cranberries strengthen your immune system allowing your body to successfully fight infections. That is why they are considered a superfood due to their high antioxidant and nutrient content. Moreover, they support your digestive health, improve your heart health and your eyesight, help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and protect your liver. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that they may have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.

Are cranberries good for weight loss?

Because fresh and frozen cranberries are low in calories and sugar they can be included in any weight loss diet. They contain only 46 calories and 4 grams of sugar in one entire cup. Since these juicy berries are a rich source of beneficial fiber they can aid your digestion. Incorporating these amazing berries in your weight loss menu will help you achieve a flat belly faster than you think.
