Here is another tasty way that I've found to use fresh or frozen cranberries in a smoothie. I took a little different spin on this High Protein Berry Smoothie recipe that I shared the other day. I gotta say, I'm really enjoying adding those shiny, ruby berries to my smoothies. I've been a bit lax lately in adding greens to my smoothies, so I decided to include some this time. The fresh baby spinach just disappears into this drink ~ can't see it, nor taste it ~ but you still get the benefit of its green goodness, just the same. Greek yogurt, flax seed/oil and strawberries/blueberries are just more of the superfood goodies in this smoothie ~ and it works for the Fat Flush Plan, too. Booyah!
