Blue cranberry smoothie
BC Blueberry Council
You can sip this simple smoothie when you have a poor appetite and need hydration. It’s also a good option if you have a sore throat or find food hard to swallow. Try using an almond drink or soy beverage in this recipe instead of the water for extra calories and protein. Or replace the yogurt with any kind of milk or a soy or nut beverage for a thinner texture.
