Cranberry and Apple Hot Smoothie
A spicy and refreshing breakfast that warms you up from the inside
Author: Nicky | Kitchen Sanctuary
20 g (2.5 tbsp.) dried cranberries
1/4 tsp cinnamon
6 g (1cm) cubed piece of ginger peeled and chopped finely
350 ml just boiled water
1 sweet dessert apple I like to use Jazz apples, chopped
Place your dried cranberries, cinnamon and ginger into a cup and add 150ml of boiling water. Give it a stir and leave to steep for 7-8 minutes.
Place the cranberry mix and the chopped apple in your smoothie maker. Add in a splash of cold water if you think the liquid is too warm (see warning above about hot liquids and smoothie makers).
Blend on high for a minute or two until the cranberries and ginger have been incorporated.
Pour your smoothie into a cup and mix in the remaining 200ml just boiled water.
Drink as is, or you can put in the microwave for 30 seconds to heat a little more if required.
