As you might be able to tell (from this and this), I love cranberries and oranges together. There is something about that sweet-tart flavor that’s incredible to me, and this particular smoothie also incorporates the wonder ingredient tahini. Tahini is a fantastic ingredient to add to your diet as much as possible: sesame seeds (what tahini is made of) are one of the best plant-based sources of calcium.
- 1 orange (frozen for a colder smoothie)
- 1 cup cranberries
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1 cup non-dairy milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2″ – 1″ fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon sweetener (I used maple syrup; you can also add more orange or orange juice to sweeten)
Blend all of the ingredients together and enjoy!
