I love smoothies for afternoon snacks and am always looking for new recipes to try. They are such fun snacks! I just made this Cranberry Cherry Mango Smoothie the other day using a new Ocean Spray Cran-Cherry juice. It was so tasty I just had to share!
I know I’ve talked about it before, but I absolutely LOVE Food for My Family’s suggestion for storing smoothies in your freezer. Each week I make 2 new smoothie flavors in a large quantity and save the extra in my favorite freezer storage containers.
When I need a quick snack or the kids need a sweet treat, we grab a couple of the containers of smoothies from the freezer. Just let them thaw on the counter for a little bit, or defrost in the microwave for 30-60 seconds and eat with a spoon. That definitely makes food more fun.
I was asked to share Ocean Spray®’s new line of Cherry Juice Drinks with my family and share our thoughts about the juice in a video for their Facebook page. Obviously, we were a fan of the Cran-Cherry Juice. It was tasty on it’s own and delicious in this smoothie recipe.
