  • Yield: 1 Smoothie 1x


A tasty and refreshing smoothie with the antioxidant power of cranberries and the anti-inflammatory power of ginger. Makes the perfect on the go breakfast or midday pick me up.


  • 1 c unsweetened coconut or almond milk
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 12 c frozen zucchini or cauliflower, organic when possible
  • 1/4 c frozen cranberries, organic when possible
  • 1/41/2 inch (depending on preference) peeled ginger root, organic when possible
  • 1 serving plant-based protein powder (I like vanilla)
  • Optional: handful of organic spinach, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!


  • I have only ever made this smoothie with vanilla protein powder. I highly recommend you do the same – it may be more tart without it.
  • If the smoothie is too thick, add a little bit of filtered water until you reach the desired consistency.
