Are you a #SummerCranFan? We here at the Cranberry Marketing Committee sure are. We know that summertime is a great time to incorporate dried cranberries into salads, frozen cranberries into smoothies, cranberry juice into refreshing cocktails and so much more! To commemorate the first official day of summer we’ve compiled some of our best BBQ-friendly, beat-the-heat-worthy, relax-and-enjoy-the-great-outdoors-ready recipes.

We also encourage you to share your own favorite summer cranberry recipes on social media with the hashtag #SummerCranFan. As an added bonus, tag or mention your favorite food pantry and we’ll give the top five mentions $1,000 each!

This contest has ended.

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend choosing a variety of nutrient-dense foods, including fruits like cranberries, which contain essential vitamins and minerals, dietary fiber and other naturally occurring compounds that may have potential health benefits.

Make the smart choice this summer by adding cranberries into your routine. Low-fat diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and as low as possible in trans fat, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Cranberries are cholesterol and fat free, and very low in sodium. Cranberry juice is a good source of vitamins A and K and an excellent source of vitamins C and E.
