Sweet Cranberry Sauce Smoothie

Sweet Cranberry Smoothie

Don't ditch that leftover cranberry sauce on the trash, especially if you made it from scratch. Our homemade cranberry sauce was such a big hit this year that we hated to throw it out! Instead, I froze it until I could think of something to do with it. One Sunday morning I was rifling through my freezer to find ingredients for smoothies and there sat that frozen bag of cranberry sauce just begging to be tested in the blender. We tried a couple of concoctions, one was sweet and kid-friendly, which is this recipe and we also made one that is a bit more grown-up tasting because it is more tart. Both are delicious and made from the leftover Thanksgiving cranberry sauce.
