Antioxidant Vegan Cranberry Milk
Do you have some fresh cranberries left over from your last holiday celebration? If you don’t, this is a good time to pick some up as they’re probably on sale now that Thanksgiving is over. (The Sprouts here in AZ has 12-oz. bags for just .99!) I like to freeze a couple bags to have for smoothies, nice cream and eating by themselves as a tart, refined sugar-free treat.
Cranberries are a great source of antioxidants and are known to improve immune function, lower the risk of urinary tract and yeast infections, prevent certain types of cancer, and decrease blood pressure.
If you’re not into the super tartness of fresh cranberries but still want to experience its benefits, try this delicious, 3-ingredient cranberry-infused vegan milk recipe.
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 3 cups unsweetened, unflavored vegan milk (try my oat, almond or cashew milk recipes, you can use a vanilla milk if you want)
- 1-3 tablespoons of agave (optional, adjust to taste)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Combine cranberries and vegan milk in a blender.
- Process until smooth.
- Strain using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth. Discard, compost or save it for vegan crackers!
- Rinse blender out to remove any leftover cranberry purée.
- Add agave (and vanilla extract if you’re using it) to the cranberry milk and process again to combine.
Bonus Recipe: Combine all ingredients and don't strain; mix with one cup of traditional oats for delicious, antioxidant cranberry overnight oats.
