Making Smoothies with Cranberries

Cranberries are small berries that range in color from white to red, that grow on low-lying vines in marshes and bogs. Unlike most other berries, cranberries do not get sweeter as they ripen, and have a tart, sour flavor. Cranberries are crisp in texture and contain four small air pockets that make them buoyant and easy to harvest.
