A Festive Orange Cranberry Green Smoothie

This festive detox smoothie is a great way to sneak your greens in while enjoying some of the season's best flavors. Cranberry and orange are a match made in heaven - it's one of my favorite combinations. I add a sprinkle of cinnamon to take it over the top!
