Cranberry-Orange Smoothie

I usually have a few bags of frozen cranberries in my freezer this time of year. During the holidays, I buy a some extra bags of fresh cranberries and freeze them so I can use them later, for random recipes I come across.

The cranberry-orange flavors in this smoothie are so good together and I used honey to sweeten it instead of agave nectar, which was used in the original recipe. It has just the right amount of sweetness and if you like cranberries, I’m sure you will love this smoothie!

You do have to plan ahead a little before you make it though, because it works best if you brew the tea the night before and refrigerate it so it’s chilled in the morning.
