Potent cleansing cranberry smoothie

Cranberries make you think about the holidays. This cranberry smoothie will not only put you in the holiday spirit, but will cleanse and detox your body as well.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in this cleansing cranberry smoothie recipe.

Bananas:
They are an excellent source of natural sugars. Bananas have shown health benefits in the area of cancer prevention because of their high levels of antioxidants. They also help aid in digestion, promote healthy bones, lower blood pressure, and more.

Cranberries:
They are well known to cleanse the kidneys. They remove excess water from the organs, and break down fatty tissue. Drinking cranberry juice can help prevent urinary tract infections by getting rid of E. Coli bacteria.

Kale:
It is an excellent source of two powerful antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids. These antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful oxidative stress.  They also contain important flavonoids like kaempferol and quercitin, which it thought to kill certain types of cancer cells.

Oranges:
Vitamin C is one of the most essential vitamins for detoxification, because it neutralizes free radicals that cause cellular damage.

2 cups of cranberries
1 cup of kale, chopped
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
1 orange
1 banana
1 cup of filtered water
