With the holidays quickly approaching, and my need to bake 24-7 in high gear- I must admit that sometimes I forget to eat. I'll ignore my hunger until it reaches a critical point when I need something RIGHT away.
Thank goodness for smoothies. In one minute flat and you have an instant glass of sustenance. Sugar is off bounds for me right now, making a smoothie without can take a little creativity. Today this recipe is possible thanks to the extremely low glycemic index of fresh cranberries. With only 2 grams of sugar per half cup, I know I'll be able to enjoy every sip without my blood sugar levels going haywire.
I LOVE adding vitamins to my smoothies. My favorite brand is Wellesse as they are a certified gluten free company! Their liquid multivitamin tastes fantastic in this recipe. (Plus, its sugar free too!)
