While strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are go-to ingredients for smoothies, they’re not the only berries with benefits! Cranberries, despite being a fruit, are very low in sugar (hence their tartness!), and therefore don’t cause a spike in blood sugar and release steady, slow carbohydrate energy to the body.  They’re also packed with phytophenols – the antioxidants that help fight inflammation – and help fight bacteria that cause cavities. They make the perfect fruit to add to your smoothie to aid in recovery, while filling your body with nutrients and not with heaps of sugar.


  • 1/4 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup beetroot
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 tsp spirulina
  • 1/2 tsp Maca
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (RFR tip: we recommend Epic Protein Vanilla Lucuma)
  • 1 tsp matcha
  • 1 tsp greens powder


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with ingredients of your choice – I used banana, chia seeds, coconut and pumpkin seeds!
