post thanksgiving cran-apple cleanser

Still feeling full from yesterday?  Add this smoothie into your day to get you back on track!

Think of it as scrubbing bubbles for your gut!

Cranberries are indigenous to North America where Native Americans used them medicinally for hundreds of years.  They are a great source of vitamin C, fiber and the antioxidant called anthocyanidins.  However, they are most famous for their ability to ward off urinary tract infections and kidney stones.

This smoothie takes the anti-bacterial powers of cranberries and blends them with the cleansing effects of lemon and celery creating the perfect post-thanksgiving drink!
