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!
