Did you know November 23rd is National Cranberry Day? Fun fact, five states are known for growing cranberries- Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington. Who knew!
If you caught my TV segment on WSPA, I talked about “Better Than Coffee Energy” Natural Energy Bars! These all-natural energy bars are available in four delicious flavors, one being Dark Chocolate & Cranberry (my personal favorite). Better Than Coffee’s utilizes guarana and maca—two plants from South America. Guarana, long used by natives for stamina and energy while hunting provides a quick boost of natural caffeine. Maca is scientifically proven to reduce the effects of stress while maintaining an illuminating mental and physical boost.

  • 1 tablespoon honey (also makes it non-vegan)
  • Handful of ice cubes (or make freeze cranberry juice inside an ice tray) 
  • Chia seeds for topping


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a high-powered blender in the order shown.
  2. Blend until smooth. Top with chia seeds if desired.
  3. ENJOY!
