Cranberry Detox Water
This is a very simple recipe for a cranberry detox water that you can use as often as you’d like to help support the body, especially the urinary tract. It’s a way to get pure cranberry juice that isn’t sweetened and doesn’t have preservatives added to it. By placing crushed cranberries in water you are infusing the water with the juice, and allowing the nutrients to be absorbed quickly by the body. This is a much better recipe to use than buying store bought cranberry juice, and gives you control over what you’re putting in your body.
What You Need
1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries, crushed
8 ounces Purified Water
Crush the cranberries to release their juices, add them to a glass and fill with the water. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. You’ll be helping to hydrate your body each time you drink this, while also getting the nutrients from the cranberries. This is a detox water that you can drink daily for better health
CranKale Green Smoothie
This smoothie combines two superfoods, kale and cranberries, and makes it easy for you to get a chunk of your day’s requirement of vitamins and minerals all in one glass. Green smoothies have enjoyed popularity in recent years, and for a good reason. They’re loaded with vegetables but retain the flavor of fruit. With the strong flavor of cranberries the kale goes relatively unnoticed, a good thing if you’re not the biggest fan of the taste of kale.
What You Need
1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries
1/4 cup Fresh Blueberries
1/2 cup Baby Kale
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
There is much to be said about the benefits of kale, and when you consume cranberries with it you are getting a good complementary food which adds in some of the vitamins and minerals that kale doesn’t have. This is one green smoothie that will pack a tart punch, and will be a big help to your entire system.
