Cranberry Smoothie brings a tartness to your brisk Fall morning. Greek yogurt lends a creaminess to the smoothie.

You guys.

Today I am saving your life.

WELL, really, I am just cutting back your time in the kitchen on Thanksgiving a weee bit.

But, let’s be honest, with the amount of time I know you’re already going to spend in there that is basically the same thing.

I don’t know about you, but I like to save ALL the room for my big dinner. This girl loves her Turkeymashed potatoes, stuffing AND pumpkin treats.

Go big or go home right? Right.

How-ev-er, I also don’t want to be so hardcore in the “SAVING ALL THE ROOM” department that I have to be all sorts of hungry throughout the day.

Because that kind of “hungry” really should read as “hangry.”  Don’t look at me like you don’t know what I am talking about.  I’m sure you’ve gotten a major case of the grumpies when your stomach has a case of the grumblies, a few times in your life.

That is where a smoothie that is CHOCK FULL of protein, to keep you’ belly feeling happy up until IT’S TIME, comes in.

I love smoothies to pre-game big meals for so many reasons.  Mostly because they keep the hangry away, without filling me up too much.  I fully believe that smoothies just kind of fill in the stomach-u-lar cracks until it’s ready for the “real food” to come out and play.

Don’t Wikipedia that though. I could have made it up.

PLUS, they also come together in about .00056 seconds. Which is where the whole “get out of the kitchen and relax before cray cray Uncle Joe comes over.”

You get it.

BUT WAIT, there’s MORE!  If you order this smoothie in the next 5 minutes…I’m kidding. BUT, there is more.

The flavours of this frosty, thick delight?  They scream Thanksgiving Dinner.  You know, in a drinkable form.

Not only is it gonna keep that tummy happy, it’s gonna get it PUMPED UP for what lies ahead. AND keep you out of the kitchen.

So, do I foresee a relaxing morning, sipping on a smoothie and not worrying about what to say to Uncle Joe on your Thanksgiving?

Methinks yes.
