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.
