The combination of raspberries marionberries and blueberries for the frozen mixed berries plus the cranberries was a little too tart for me so I did add a light squeeze of honey. I couldn't taste the almond milk at all and although this was an OK smoothie I really missed the creaminess that yogurt brings. Next time I will add some vanilla Greek yogurt and I'm sure that will bring this up to a 5-star rating for my taste preference.
This was pretty and had a good base flavor. It was just a tad too tart for my taste with the cranberries. I found that with another cranberry smoothie too though. I did a mix of strawberry blueberry and raspberry. I blended them well with the almond milk first to break down any of the raspberry seeds. I also had to use all frozen fruit as that is what I have. That avoided the refrigeration afterwards anyway. I made a 1/2 recipe and tried it with the half of banana as suggested. I ended up adding the whole banana which helped with the tartness. This was very healthy. ty Mottsbella
This is a delicious smoothie that is a little less sweet than some which suits me fine. I wish I had a frozen banana instead of a room temperature one so it would be a little thicker but I'll plan better next time. I like that there is no added sweetener here if you get unsweetened almond milk and I like the cranberries which are good for you but not incorporated in many drinks in non-cranberry cocktail form. Thanks!
A great use for those leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving recipes. I used regular milk frozen banana and frozen blueberries (more than 1/2 cup) to make a great balance between sweet and tart. Using frozen fruit eliminates having to waiting for this drink. With these changes the rating would be a 5.
I made this recipe and it was good. But after I added 1/2 cup of vanilla low fat Greek yogurt it gave it another kick. The yogurt gives it a creamy taste and if you're like me trying to cut back on sweets it stratifies that ice cream craving. Only thing I don't like is the berry chunks even after blending other than that great recipe.
I think you have to really like cranberries for this. I didn't tell my daughter it was any different from other smoothies and she took one drink and said Yuck! I drank mine but I was ready for it to be gone. I even added a little oat to tame it down a little.
