Cleansing Cranberry Smoothie

Cleansing Cranberry Smoothie

Cranberries are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and are best known from their cleansing powers.
They clear toxins and plaque buildup from the body by cleansing the organs utilized in elimination and the lymphatic system.

Cranberries also offer protection against urinary tract infections, support the immune system and benefit the cardiovascular system.

Add a little lemon into the mix and you have a one-two cleansing punch.
