Introduction: Cranberry Banana Pecan Smoothie

Picture of Cranberry Banana Pecan Smoothie

This recipe was inspired by the "Raw Food Contest." I must say it was challenging to make a recipe from all raw foods.  I decided to make my own raw pecan milk and this recipe was made from the milk.  It had a very smooth and fruity flavor.  My family enjoyed it.  
There are many health benefits from eating cranberries. They are another fruit that is high in vitamin C, which fight infections and has been known to help with bladder infections.
