Yes, I’m aware that Halloween was just last week, but I’m not alone in already thinking about my holiday gift list. You know the stores are already gearing up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so let’s face it, whether we’re decorating, planning menus, or gift shopping, the holiday season is upon us! So it’s time to start thinking about that gift list. It never hurts to start getting ideas or start shopping early.
With the holidays upon us, our homes will be overflowing with joy, love, and cranberries –well, with all kinds of delicious foods! Unfortunately, most of us throw out more of that food than we’d like to admit. Smoothies and juices are a great way to use a lot of the extra fruits and vegetables we find in our kitchens.
I came up with these smoothie combinations from different fruits and greens that I needed to use up before they went bad. I don’t buy fresh cranberries often, but I know I’ll have plenty of them in the house during the holiday season. They also stay fresh in the fridge for several weeks because of their acidity.
