I've known about this recipe for several years and it is time to be shared with RecipeZaar. This recipe is from Melissa Ray Davis and taken from her blog. This smoothie is a treatment for the common cold and is best taken at the early onset of symptoms. It is strong and I usually take it over a period of an hour and probably best not taken on an empty stomach. Fresh ingredients are key! Also, get unsweetened 100% cranberry juice - not a juice cocktail.
