When we have fruit or veggies that need to be used up I juice them or blend them into a smoothie. I had some green grapes that needed to be used up and some celery that wasn’t going to be crisp for long so I blended them up. It was a beautiful green color and I decided to throw in some red cranberries, as I know that they as well as celery are great for detoxing and I thought the red flecks would be pretty. I blended a little longer then planned for the speckled look but it was delicious!
Crisp Cranberry Juice Smoothie
Makes 1 serving
1 1/2 c green grapes
3 celery stalks, chopped in 3-4″ sections
1/2 c cranberries, fresh or frozen (used fresh ones I put in the freezer I was going to use for something else)
1/2 c water (if you want you can blend and then add sparkling water)
In a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, blend together grapes, celery and water. Once smooth add cranberries and blend until well chopped or if you like it smooth until smooth. Enjoy!
