Cranberry Nutmeg Smoothie

I don’t know if you remember this, but Smoothie King used to have a cranberry smoothie called Cranberry Supreme that rocked. I discovered it during my stent as smoothie maker in high school, and I was forever changed toward smoothies. Cranberry smoothies are the bomb. Unfortunately, Smoothie King did away with Cranberry Supreme because the only people who ever ordered it were old people. Like there is something wrong with being old and eating a lot of cranberries.

Cranberries are quite the powerful little berry. Did you know they are considered a superfood? They’ve got a plethora of vitamins and antioxidants, and they can help prevent cardiovascular disease and urinary tract infections. If they’re that good for you, I’ll risk looking like an old geyser for drinking a cranberry smoothie any day.

This particular cranberry smoothie of mine is made with dried cranberries, which do contain a bit of sugar, so you’ve got to be careful about eating too many of them. I also added some spices because this time of year requires things like cinnamon and nutmeg. It sort of captures the season.
