The day after a big (holiday) meal, I like to have a light breakfast to ease back into the swing of things. It takes me a bit to get my appetite back, but I’m pretty sure that has something to do with the late night pie snacking that accompanies the holidays. This smoothie is the perfect thing for recovery, because it’s loaded with vitamin C and probiotics from the kombucha. To top it all off, it’s good enough to have for dessert as well!

Somehow I’ve overlooked the goodness of cranberries, and they’ve been relegated to the Thanksgiving table long enough. These tangy magenta orbs are the perfect way to add a flavor punch to so many things. Once their inherent acidity is tamed by complimentary (sweet) ingredients, they’re a totally awesome way to work in another anti-oxident rich berry into your life. This smoothie gives you the full healthy benefits because it’s completely raw, which means that all the vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidents are intact.

Peel the oranges, and break them in half. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, break them up into individual sections.

I like to use frozen cranberries in this recipe because it makes it a little frosty. My favorite kombucha to use in smoothies is the ginger flavor because the spice is great with the orange, but the cranberry flavor is good as well. If you don’t have access to kombucha, you can use apple juice which works as a good sweetener in this smoothie. Hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving day!

P.S. Is it too soon to start making candy?

  1. Have you tried this smoothie with either coconut or almond milk, instead of the kombucha? Just curious what that would do to the flavor…

    1. I haven’t tried this smoothie with coconut or almond milk. The kombucha gives it a bright flavor with just a touch of effervescence, and I would guess that almond or coconut milk would make the smoothie creamier, but I don’t know if the flavors would be a good match. If you do end up trying it, be sure to let me know how it goes!

  2. I know this says it makes 2 to 4 servings, but I drank it all in one go and would drink more! Just the right balance of sweet and tart. It is making my heart sing, it’s that good!

  3. This Recipe For The Smoothie looks Delicious! Please Change on Your Site Ziplist Is Not Doing this Anymore. if you want to save try!

    1. Thanks for writing about the Ziplist button in the recipe, it must have escaped my attention when I went through and deleted their stuff! We’ve been looking into other possible saving options (like epicurious) but I’m not sure if we’ll add anyone’s save buttons into the site at this point. I hope you enjoy the recipe, it’s one of my all-time favorite smoothies! 🙂

  4. I used a cranberry ginger kombucha and thought it was delicious! My family thought it needed a banana or two to cut the citrus bite ! Delicious both ways!

    1. I’ll add a note to the recipe about additional sweetening if your citrus has a bite, sometimes it’s really sweet but other times it can be rather sour! Glad you enjoyed it!
