These delicious sour little gems are harvested towards the end of Autumn and are in plentiful supply during the winter seasons. In addition, December brings some delicious, sweet, juicy pineapples from the Caribbean that partner great with the cranberries! The shake today is packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, phytonutrients, iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, fiber, copper, healthy fats (omega-3s, omega-6s, MCTs), vitamins A, B(B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9), C, E, K… Great for preventing urinary tract infections and sure to be the best cranberry smoothie you’ll ever have!
