This recipe makes 48-60 oz. of fruit smoothie.  If you desire less, cut the recipe in half.

In the container of a high-powered blender (such as a Vita-Mix) place rinsed cranberries, peeled oranges, washed and cored apples, peeled bananas, dates, and flaxseed (a good source of omega-3 fatty acids).

Add ice. With cover in place, run blender at high speed until all ingredients are combined.  If the fruit smoothie is thicker than desired, add some ice water and blend into the smoothie. 

Pour into individual glasses.

Serve with a straw and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
