Advantages of a cranberry smoothie
Not only does it combine all the goodness of cranberry juice but you also get berries, an apple and a banana so lots of vitamin c and nutrients in addition!
Why do Slimming World syn smoothies?
Just Average Jen is an independent blog and in no way connected with any weight loss plan and no contributors have been trained by them or worked for them. It is the reader’s responsibility to check Slimming World syn values, WW points and any other allowances themselves as those given are approximate.
If you follow Slimming World you will know that smoothies are synned on the plan. If I am honest this isn’t something I really agree with for a number of reasons.
Their reasoning behind this is that it is easier to drink all this fruit than it would be to eat it and as such it doesn’t keep you feeling full for as long. On the other hand, I think it wouldn’t be that unusual to eat an apple, a banana and a handful of berries for breakfast and the fruit would be mushed up in your mouth anyway so there is no difference.
The long and short of it is, if you follow Slimming World you should syn this drink, as you should also syn cranberry juice. Whether you do or not though is entirely up to you!

Other cranberry juice recipes
Cranberry juice can also be enjoyed as part of a cocktail in the evening. Have you considered it with gin? Sea Arch, an alcohol-free gin alternative, have a great recipe for a seaside sunrise cocktail using Sea Arch (which tastes very like gin but without the alcohol) and cranberry juice which is then topped up with clementine and cinnamon tonic.Print
Pour the cranberry juice into a blender and then add the berries, banana and apple.
Whizz on high power until all combined well and the smoothie becomes a perfect velvet-like texture.
