My body has officially hit a wall after being a bit too indulgent over these past few weeks. After a swath of rich holiday meals, my body is yearning for nutrients and health—and this cranberry & satsuma morning juice fits the bill. One of my worst habits is that I usually run out of the house without a lick of breakfast, only to find myself starving later and cramming a muffin in my mouth. This lifestyle choice obviously needs some modifying so I'm building an arsenal of easy morning drinks that will help me kick this bad habit.
The great thing about cranberries is that they're packed with tons of health benefits. I almost began to wonder why I hadn't made a juice with these tart little red gems before. They're not only a good source of vitamin C, vitamin E, and fiber, but they also have anti-inflammatory properties and more. I added some satsumas and fresh ginger for a splash of citrus and spice. The result is a refreshing, vibrant juice that can help me kick my no-breakfast habit.
This drink isn't sweet on its own, so a little drizzle of honey is warmly welcomed. Whether you're looking to aid a sluggish body like mine or just need to use the last of your cranberries, I hope you enjoy this morning juice!
