A DELICIOUS CRANBERRY JUICE RECIPE & TREATMENT FOR UTI
With a dose of fresh cranberries and a banana, this is a great smoothie for helping women prevent and treat urinary tract infections.
Cranberries have been proven to lower the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs), and this recipe simply combines unadulterated cranberries with a banana, for sweetness, and water.
Simple green smoothies are great for digestion and elimination, but this juicy smoothie is specially formulated to benefit the urinary tract by rejecting unhealthy bacteria from the tract wall. This simple cranberry/banana combination makes the tart cranberries more palatable and turns a super healthy habit into a dessert-worthy smoothie.
If you struggle with urinary tract health or simply want to enjoy cranberries in their more natural state, this smoothie will be a pleaser. 🙂 A Blendtec or Vitamix will easily liquify whole cranberries, but you can make this with a “regular” blender as well.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Urinary tract infections are caused by germs, usually bacteria that enter the urethra and then the bladder.
This can lead to infection, most commonly in the bladder itself, which can spread to the kidneys. Most of the time, your body can get rid of these bacteria. However, certain conditions increase the risk of having UTIs.
Women tend to get them more often because their urethra is shorter and closer to the anus than in men. Because of this, women are more likely to get an infection after sexual activity or when using a diaphragm for birth control.
Menopause also increases the risk of a UTI. CRANBERRY JUICE IS THE BEST THING FOR NATURAL UTI PREVENTION. Drink lots of cranberry juice, make it fresh at home in your blender without all the added sugars.
Store bought cranberry juice has plenty of additives that you don’t need! BUY FRESH AND ORGANIC for maximal nutrition and optimal health.

I am going to try this adding apple. Thanks for sharing!!
Sounds like a great addition! Hope you enjoyed! 🙂 ~ Tarashaun
Can you use this method for other fruits, like black berries? What about adding other fruits along with it, making “cran-apple” juice?
Hi Rimmy! You can absolutely use different fruits with the cranberries such as apple or blackberries. You can either sub the banana or replace it. Whatever works best for you and your taste buds. Enjoy!
So someone gave me cranberries. I but them in my freezer. I decided i wanted to make cranberry orange kombucha. What a great idea . Thank you!!!
You are so welcome! Cranberry orange kombucha sounds delicious! 🙂 ~Tarashaun
This juice is fantastic! I used local honey for the sweetener and my family loves it. Not only does it taste wonderful, it’s very easy to make, and the house smells great too (BONUS!!). Thank you for posting this recipe.
You are so welcome Dianne! I’m so glad you all enjoyed my Cranberry Juice recipe. 🙂 Tarashaun
Thanks for sharing, this was delicious
I get use the Lady Soma Cranberry pills for my mother who suffers from lots of things including UTI’s. When she takes these, that problem is one less. If she stops, the problem returns. Great price & I don’t need to leave the house to get them. Speak for themselves really!
The video said to use 2 cups cranberries. The ingredient list ( recipe) shows 1 cup cranberries. Which is correct?
Thanks for pointing that out Audrey! It looks from the video like it’s only 1 cup – but we do say 2 cups in the video. I’ve made this before with one cup and it was really good. I’m sure you can’t go wrong either way, however you may need to add some dates or stevia to sweeten if you use 2 cups of cranberries. Keep me posted if you try it! HAPPY BLENDING!
