Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie

I woke up this morning hoping to look out the window and see the 4-10 inches of promised snow in the DC metro area. Whomp, whomp.

Of course right now we just have slush. It might get bad still though so I am keeping my pregnant tush in my “work from home” spot. Folks in Syracuse are probably laughing at us.

On to this smoothie! Ocean Spray asked me to try out their new diet cranberry juice and I seriously love cranberry juice.

As a woman (without getting into the personal details, if you know what I mean) cranberry juice is really good for you, but we all know juice is a diet buster so this is pretty awesome:

1 cup of diet cranberry has only 5 calories and 2 carbs. (Regular cranberry has 132 calories per cup and 30 carbs).

The juice tastes really good too. It doesn’t have a fake sweet taste, it’s just a little lighter and in this smoothie it might as well be regular non-diet juice. Here is the recipe for the smoothie. If youre watching your calories or if you just love smoothies, try this one!

Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie  (Makes 1 large cup)
3/4 cup Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice Drink, any flavor
3/4 cup frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries)
1 6-ounce container low fat berry-flavored yogurt (I used Chobani Bite raspberry chocolate!)
1/2 banana, cut into slices

1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend for a few seconds on high speed or until ingredients are thoroughly combined. Pour into a large glass.


I have partnered with Ocean Spray through DailyBuzz to help promote their new Ocean Spray Diet product. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with this product, however my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

    This looks good. I’ve been collecting smoothie recipes, but it’s hard to find low-carb ones.
