Immune System Booster: Cranberry Apple Smoothie

Hello dear smoothie lovers! ☺️

Today I’d like to share with you a simple immunity-boosting smoothie recipe that will get you through the cold season.

It is super simple and only takes a couple of minutes to prep so it’s perfect for busy mornings or for a quick afternoon snack.

This smoothie has a pleasant taste of berry with a hint of cinnamon. It is also good for kids: it tastes like melted ice-cream and contains no additives 👌🏻.

If you want the smoothie to be chilled you can use frozen cranberries. The frozen berries are a perfect substitute for ice and give the smoothie a pleasant creamy texture.

Why my Cranberry Apple Smoothie is good for you:

  • Cranberry is known for its very sour taste. It is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Many of these phytonutrients offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer health benefits. Cranberries are also a very good source of vitamin C, B5, E, K, as well as manganese, copper and dietary fiber.
  • Apples contain important nutritional elements such as vitamin C, K, B6, and B2, as well as minerals like potassium, copper, manganese, and magnesium. Apples are a very good sources of dietary fiber, and a single serving provides 12% of the daily fiber requirement.
  • Yogurt contains a good amount of protein, as well as several other nutrients like calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, potassium, and magnesium.
  • Cinnamon has high anti-inflammatory properties and contains antioxidants.
