1/2 cup frozen cranberries, plus one thinly sliced cranberry for garnish
3/4 cup ice cubes
1/3 cup lowfat vanilla yoghurt
1/4 cup orange juice
1 to 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ
Put the frozen cranberries, ice cubes, yogurt, orange juice and maple syrup into a blender. Blend on high until smooth, turning off the blender and pushing down on the ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon as needed to help the blending process. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of cold water if needed to adjust consistency. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with the wheat germ. Garnish with the sliced cranberry. Stir well before serving.
