Cranberry Clementine Grape Post-Holiday Cleansing #Smoothie #vitamix

It's the day after Christmas and it's time to get back to reality. After two days of real food—admittedly rich, calorie, carb-loaded, calorie-dense real food—my body is craving something cleaner. No time to get on that like RIGHT NOW. 

So, I just made a quick breakfast smoothie chock full of fruits. This refreshing drink not only helps to clean out my system, it also helped me clean out my fridge a bit: whole cranberries leftover from the holiday meal; clementines that Santa put in our stockings; and grapes from the cheese platters I served on Christmas Eve.

yields about two cups

  • 1 cup red grapes
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries (frozen would work, too)
  • 2 clementines, peeled
  • about a cup of ice

Blend until smooth. Then drink up!

I had a small handful of nuts alongside my smoothie, a little fat and protein to counterbalance the sugars of the smoothie. It was a good way to start the day. Now, to avoid digging into the leftover stuffing and gravy in my fridge... 

Hope you all enjoyed the holiday!

P.S. Just noticed this was my fourth cranberry post in a row. I tell you, I am hooked on these little nutrition bombs!
