Cranberry Pear Orange Smoothie

Cranberry Pear Orange Smoothie is a tart, sweet, nutritious smoothie and a great way to use up leftover cranberries. This smoothie also packs a lot of health benefits: antioxidants, fiber and vitamin C. 

Cranberry Pear Orange Smoothie

Last week I shared a recipe for Cranberry Orange Bread.

After making that loaf of bread I had leftover fresh cranberries to use. I hate letting anything go to waste so I was trying to find a way to use them up and smoothie popped into my head. Smoothies are a great way to use up leftover fruit and vegetables because you don’t need a lot of them but can pair small amounts to create a nutritious start to your day or snack.

Cranberry Pear Orange Smoothie is a good way to start your day because it has fiber from the pear, vitamin C from the orange and antioxidants from the cranberries. I can’t help but love that bright, bold color that the cranberries give it.

When I first made this smoothie it was a bit tart for my liking because of the cranberries so I added 1 teaspoon of honey. I would use the honey to your taste and add more or less depending on how tart you like your smoothie.

Do you want to get creative?

Throw a few other nutritious things in this smoothie like:

  • A handful of fresh spinach
  • A frozen or fresh banana
  • A few frozen strawberries, blueberries, mango or pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
  • Agave nectar instead of the honey
