Cranberry-Banana Antioxidant Smoothie–sugar-free, 3 ingredients

It’s incredible how I can overlook the obvious. Case in point, cranberries. I love cranberries. I love smoothies. Why I have never considered combining the two is beyond me.

Whole Carrot-Mango Smoothie (made with whole carrots, not carrot juice)
