Cranberry Smoothie

I was trying to decide if I wanted to call this a cranberry smoothie or a cranberry milkshake or simple frozen goodness of cranberries. I think technically milkshakes contain ice cream so I went with the smoothie. Fair warning it has a consistency of a milkshake though because of the Greek yogurt.

Did you purchase a couple extra bags of cranberries over the holidays because they were so cheap? I certainly did. Then I threw them in the freezer for an occasion such as this. When it was freezing cold outside (literally, ice is everywhere!) and I just needed a frozen drink. Wait. What? If you haven't figured out that I'm a little bit crazy yet then you haven't been reading my posts thoroughly enough. Anyway, this cranberry smoothie is super tart because of the Greek yogurt and the cranberries; you may want to add more honey than I did if you want something a little sweeter.

Cranberry Smoothie
6 oz carton non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup frozen cranberries
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 tbsp honey plus more to taste

Combine everything in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Taste to see if you need extra sweetener and add as desired.


  1. I still drink iced soy lattes in the middle of the Buffalo winter. You are not crazy Julie... or at least, you are not alone in your craziness. I also make blended nutritional/protein shakes daily; however, some nights after trekking home from the gym, I have to drink them with gloves still on or while standing in the shower.
