Cosmopolitan Smoothie

Smoothie flavoured with cranberry, orange and lime

The lovely weather we had recently really brought out the smoothie in me! And before things turned sour and we had hail stones and sleet as we have in the past 24 hours, I decided to make a smoothie flavoured like a cocktail. Well, not exactly, there is no alcohol in this healthy drink!

Perfect for kids and the tee-total, or anyone in the daytime,  this Cosmopolitan Smoothie has all the flavour of a Cosmo, (but none of the vodka). Bursting with cranberry (juice), oranges and lime juice this drink is tart, fresh and flavourful.

I used my Optimum 9400 from Froothie, which meant I could drop my peeled oranges straight into the jug of the blender. Because it is so powerful, any pips get pulverised.

I used a low-sugar cranberry juice in the drink as I couldn’t find any cranberries in my supermarket, plus they would have been way too tart. As I said I added the oranges whole and squeezed lime juice straight into the blender. For a bit of smoothie creaminess, I added almond milk, instead of my usual banana. This made for a very palate-cleansing, fresh drink.

Now I’m in the mood of an actual Cosmo, hehe! Here’s how I made the smoothie.
