Cranberry-Blueberry Smoothie

You can prepare the cranberry mixture for this smoothie ahead of time. Let it cool to room temperature, then chill until ready to use. To make one smoothie at a time, use 1/2 cup of the cranberry mixture, 2/3 cup yogurt, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries, 2 ice cubes and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. This smoothie is on the tart side, so add more honey if you like things sweet.
