A method of preparing a fruit smoothie with cranberries

Ingredients for making a fruit cocktail. You can replace lemon and mineral water with lemon or orange juice without sugar.

Peel and chop apples

Cut the core of the sweet apple, peel it, cut into small cubes. The peel from the apple can not be removed, but if it is thick, then this can ruin the smoothie.

Peeling grapefruit

Peel the grapefruit, divide into segments, cut off a thin white film from them. If you do not remove this film, the drink will be bitter.

Peel and chop the ginger

Peel a small piece of fresh ginger from the skin, cut into thin strips, add to the grapefruit and apple. Ginger for one portion of the drink needs very little - overdo it with the quantity, the cocktail will be sharp and may even be bitter, so two thin plates cut into pieces are enough.

Add washed cranberries, not thawed cranberries

We add cranberries to the fruit without defrosting - it will replace the ice in the drink.

Squeeze juice from fresh lemon

Squeeze juice from fresh lemon. To prevent lemon seeds from falling into the cocktail, filter the juice through a fine sieve.

Add honey

Add honey. This is a very tasty, but at the same time high-calorie sweetener for a cocktail, so remember that everything useful is good in moderation.

Add mineral water without gas

Add about 50 ml of mineral water without gas to the ingredients. Add water with a neutral taste, if there is none, then replace with ordinary chilled boiled water.

Grind the ingredients with a blender

Grind the ingredients with a blender until a smoothie is smooth for about 1 minute.
