Cranberry-Orange Smoothie

Cranberries.  Orange.  If you're like me, these words conjure up notions of delicious holiday fare from luscious cranberry sauce and hand pies to one of my favorite combinations of these classic flavors, cranberry-orange scones.  And now I've discovered yet another delicious (and healthier) combo of these flavors that's also a nice balance to the decadent fare that's the norm during the holiday season: Cranberry-Orange Smoothies.

Frozen cranberries and bananas (I like the frothy effect of frozen fruit), combined with orange juice, low-fat milk and honey, makes for one refreshingly good (and good for you) drink.

Happy Sipping!

Cranberry-Orange Smoothie
Recipe adapted from The Daily Meal
