What a delicious combination of ingredients for a really tasty smoothie. I do like smoothies that are less sweet and the tangy flavour of this sounds perfect.
Then you’ll love this one!

I love the pink hue that the cranberry juice adds to this lively smoothie. I can imagine that the pineapple would add a lot of natural sweetness to the tart cranberry. Delightful!
The pineapple is a great addition for sure!
What a nice flavor combo. I’ve never tried pineapple and cranberry together. Sounds great!
It’s a great combo for sure!
love that delicious photo and that this is only 4 ingredients. I sure cant wait to try this pretty drink!

LOVING the combo of flavors! Sounds SO GOOD!
They really are fabulous!
I love RW Knudsen! Big fan of their cherry juice. Love this recipe too. I always have frozen pineapple on hand.
Me too! I love using frozen pineapple in smoothies!
I never think to use cranberry juice, and I love it so much. Adding to my next smoothie!
It definitely adds a refreshing flavor!
Have you tried this recipe using unsweetened cranberries versus cranberry juice and/or cranberry juice and pineapple juice?
I haven’t but I bet that would be good!

Since my blender is still packed in a box, I wonder if the cuisanart will work? I can’t wait to try this this smoothie ! Love anything tart!
I’m not sure but it’s worth a try!
Any suggestions on a replacement for Greek yogurt to make this dairy free? Thank you!
