Smoothie Saturday #5 - Cranberry Walnut
A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet". Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.
Today is the fifth "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.
In this recipe one of the main ingredients is Cranberry & Cranberry juice.
Cranberry - a wonderful antioxidant that helps prevent heart disease &cancer, cranberries have anti-bacterial properties and help prevent urinary tract infections, gum disease & stomach ulcers, cranberries also help prevent strokes. (again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimers post" at the bottom of this post).
1/2 pear (washed, cored & peeled - you can leave the skin on if you prefer)
1/2 apple (washed & cored - I leave the skin on)
1/3 banana (peeled)
a handful (about 10 to 15) of fresh cranberries (washed)
2 tablespoons walnuts
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup kefir (or yogurt)
1/4 cup cranberry juice (you may substitute orange juice)
Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the walnuts & flax seeds. Now place the remaining ingredients (including the processed seeds & nuts from the first step) into the larger "NutriBullet" container and use the "smoothie" blade. Blend for about 30 seconds.
IMPORTANT: All of my smoothie recipes on this blog are measured for the "NutriBullet" and are a single serving - if you have a different kind of blender that has a larger capacity then you may increase the amount of ingredients according to your desired smoothie needs. The ingredients in this recipe measure close to the max line of the NutriBullet.
