This is a wonderful drink for any time! The slight tartness from the Cranberry Juice do not take over, but it balances nicely with the Raspberries. Run out of Cranberry Juice? No problem! If you have leftover jelled cranberries, add a spoon or two to water to make your own.

    Note: This is a thinner drink and smaller than I normally make them. I tend to make mine thicker as I sip on them through the morning and want them to remain cold. For a more "breakfast" smoothie, you can add prepared quick oatmeal that has cooled (about 1/4th cup). This will also thicken the smoothie so you may need to add additional liquid.
