Ideas for a Health-Promoting Smoothie

Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and anthocyanins (the phytonutrients that give cranberries, blueberries and cherries their deep colours). They also contain a sugar called “mannose”, which, when combined with cranberry juice’s natural phytonutrients, helps to heal and prevent urinary tract infections. Adding cranberry juice to your morning smoothie is a good idea.

I also like to add a few stalks of celery, a vegetable that lowers blood-pressure.

Ginger helps ward-off  the common cold and influenza, especially the fresh variety.
