HOW TO MAKE A CRANBERRY APPLE SMOOTHIE

One reason I love smoothies is that they are quick to make. My magic bullet mixer makes the job so simple. I love that this smoothie recipe has no added sugars!

STEP ONE: CHOP APPLE

The first step is to chop up 1/2 of an apple. I like to leave the peel on the apple because of the nutrition that is found in the peel.

Add the chopped apple to the blender.

STEP TWO: ADD INGREDIENTS

Now it is time to add the frozen cranberries, date, almond butter, flax meal, hemp hearts and ice cubes to the blender.

Pour the coconut and almond milk over the top of the ingredients.

STEP THREE: BLEND

Now blend the smoothie ingredients on high until smooth. It really does help to have a powerful mixer in order to get the best and smoothest results.
