What Makes This a Kidney Detox Smoothie

cranberry raspberry smoothie for kidney health

The smoothie is powered mainly by the cranberries. They are so good for your kidneys and urinary tract. 

If you have ever suffered from UTIs, you must have been told at least once to consume cranberries, since they can help.

These tiny, tart fruits contain phytonutrients called A-type proanthocyanidins, which prevent bacteria from sticking to the lining of the urinary tract and bladder, thus preventing infection.

Of course, the smoothie contains an array of other healthy ingredients which also contribute to overall health.

When To Drink Cranberry Smoothie For Kidney Cleanse

I have a long history of suffering from UTIs, and this smoothie has really helped me with battling the symptoms while waiting to get antibiotics.

I make and consume the smoothie as soon as I start getting the symptoms of UTIs.

If you do not have UTIs, but simply want to cleanse your kidneys and keep them healthy, then I recommend drinking this smoothie on an empty stomach.

Whether it’s in the morning or before bed.

How Many Cranberry Smoothies A Day?

Whenever I decide to boost the health of my kidneys, I always drink this smoothie twice a day, for at least 3 days.

On top of that, I also ensure I drink plenty of water, eat as healthily as I can, and exercise. 

I also recommend that you try my pineapple and cranberry juice drink recipe, which is also wonderful at cleansing your kidneys. 

Recipe Variations

I have been making this cranberry smoothie for a long time now. Each time I make it, I always change it up a little, because why not?

Some tasty variations that you can try that I also loved include:

#1. The Cranberries!

There are several different ways of adding the cranberry element to this smoothie.

You can use dried cranberries, cranberry juice, and whole fresh cranberries.

Here are the quantities per serving for each type:

  1. Cranberry Juice: The quantity is 1 cup of cranberry juice INSTEAD of the dairy-free milk in the original recipe listed here.
  2. Fresh Cranberries: Use 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen whole cranberries.
  3. Dried Cranberries: 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries.

#2. Add Protein!

Adding a bit of protein can make this smoothie more filling and satisfying.

Avoid adding too much protein to your smoothie, since excess protein can do the opposite of keeping your kidneys healthy.

I have been adding 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt to this smoothie for a while now and I have enjoyed it a lot.

#3. Add a Tropical Twist:

I swapped the raspberries for pineapple and mango several times now, and I love this tropical version.

Pineapple and mango work very well with cranberries.

#4. Refreshing Coconut Twist

The original recipe calls for dairy-free milk, however, I have also tested using coconut water instead, and the result is delicious.

Coconut water is so refreshing and makes the smoothie so aromatic too!

If you decide to test your variations of this smoothie, let me know in the comments what they were!
