The Blue Cranberry Smoothie Recipe


I love the name of this smoothie: The Blue Cranberry. It sounds like a fancy restaurant or jazz nightclub. But in reality it is a smoothie that will help prevent bladder infections and fight against painful urinary tract infections or UTI. How does this help?


Well, the wrote, “cranberry juice changes the thermodynamic properties of bacteria in the urinary tract, creating an energy barrier that prevents the microorganisms from getting close enough to latch onto cells and initiate an infection.

Huh? Let’s just say that cranberry juice targets the bacteria that causes bladder infections and zaps it. Plus, this smoothie tastes great. Your lips and your bladder will thank you. That actually sounds weird, but you get the point. Let’s hear feedback for the blueberry, cranberry smoothie. Good or Gross?

The Blue Cranberry Smoothie

Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen whole cranberries
  • 1/2 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juiced cocktail


  1. Place the cranberry juice in the blender first, yogurt second and frozen fruits last. Start on a slow speed until the blades are smoothly turning and then push to high for 30 seconds or so.

Of course, a cranberry smoothie is not your cure-all for bladder or urinary infections, so see a doctor if yours persists. But drinking cranberry juice can help prevent you from having an infection so enjoy knowing you are drinking a healing smoothie.

    So many of your great recipies have no ‘save to recipe box’ button. What’s up with that?

      We didn’t add that feature until recently. Which recipe would you like to have us add it too?
