If you have leftover cranberries in your fridge, then it’s time to use them up in an easy cranberry smoothie! This Tropical Cranberry Smoothie is light and slightly tart, thanks to the cranberries. It’s a healthy breakfast or snack that is incredibly easy to make!

I’m using banana, mango, dragon fruit, and strawberries in this Tropical Cranberry Smoothie. I add all ingredients into a blender, along with milk (or water), and I blend until smooth. You can use any kind of milk you like whether it’s cow’s milk, coconut milk, oat milk — or you can even use water.

I prefer to use frozen fruit for smoothies as it makes a thicker smoothie. I’ve made this one with both frozen cranberries and fresh cranberries, and either one will work! But I highly recommend using frozen fruit for the rest. If you’re using all fresh, then you may want to use less liquid for a thicker smoothie.

This easy cranberry smoothie makes the perfect snack or breakfast! I love making this Tropical Cranberry Smoothie for breakfast with a half of bagel with my Maple Cream Cheese Spread on top!

Why You'll Love This Recipe

Sweet & Tart: I love the combination of this easy cranberry smoothie because the cranberries bring a tartness while the other tropical fruits like banana, strawberry, mango and dragon fruit all bring sweetness. So it strikes a nice balance.

Healthy: This easy cranberry smoothie has many health benefits because of all the organic fruits! Read on for health benefits of each fruit included in this smoothie.

Easy: This Tropical Cranberry Smoothie is so easy! Dump all ingredients into a high powdered blender and blend until smooth, that's it!

Ingredients

Cranberries: You can use fresh or frozen organic cranberries.

Dragon Fruit: I use frozen organic dragon fruit as the frozen fruit helps make the smoothie thick.

Mango: I use frozen organic mango as this really helps thicken smoothies.

Strawberries: I use frozen organic strawberries as frozen is best for smoothies.

Banana: I always use fresh banana (not frozen) as I think this helps blend up the smoothies better! I talk more about this trick in my post 10 Tips for Making Thick Smoothies.

Milk: I use organic milk here, but if you want to use coconut milk or almond milk you can do that too. You could even use water if you want, but it doesn't make it as thick.

Health Benefits

Cranberries: Cranberries are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, helping to boost the immune system and prevent urinary tract infections.

Dragon Fruit: Dragon fruit is high in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, which can enhance immune function, support digestion, and reduce inflammation.

Mango: Mangoes are packed with vitamins A and C, promoting eye health, boosting the immune system, and aiding in healthy skin.

Banana: Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, and fiber, which help regulate blood pressure, support brain health, and promote digestive health.
