  • Make sure to use frozen cranberries, as they are easier to blend.

  • Agave syrup instead of maple syrup: Agave syrup is a plant-based sweetener that has a milder flavor than maple syrup and is lower in calories. This substitution would be beneficial for those looking for a healthier alternative to maple syrup.
  • Frozen blueberries instead of frozen cranberries: Frozen blueberries would provide a different flavor to the syrup and would be beneficial for those looking to switch up the taste of the dish.
