Cranberry Cherry Mango Smoothie [Ocean Spray Giveaway]

Drinks, Giveaway | 50 comments

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.

    My favorite is the cran-raspberry 100% juice. When I was in my first trimester of pregnancy, it was the one things I could drink without gagging, so I drank A LOT of it!

    Ever since I would go for drives with my dad I remember him drinking CranGrape or regular Cranberry and I would always get to have my own because I would whine! Hahah, I was so spoiled when it came to my father watching me

    My favorite is regular cranberry, but since I LOVE cherry I’ll have to try the new kind! The smoothie looks amazing too. I’m not a huge mango fan though. I wonder how it would be with frozen peaches?

    My favorite is Cran-Apple! The apple mellows out the tartness that full blown cranberry juice can have. I have also used this juice when making summer smoothies.
