Can you remember those Refresher sweeties? They were sweet ‘fizzy’ tasting sweets and I loved them. This smoothie tastes like that. No joke.


Cranberry, Orange and Coconut Sherbet Smoothie (serves 1, vegan)

  • 200g of frozen cranberries (I used half a bag of frozen cranberries from Sainsburys)
  • 1 large orange, peeled
  • 1 cup of kara coconut milk (or 1/4 cup of full fat coconut milk and some water)
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used sun warrior) or you could probably try vanilla yoghurt instead

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Drink and feel like a kid again!

I just love how naturally sweet this is, cranberries themselves can be quite tart, but the addition of the orange counteracts that, and along with the vanilla creates that tangy sherbet flavour.

Cranberries themselves are packed with nutrition and of course they are good for helping urinary tract infections. This smoothie is a great way to include them in your diet.
