Get a jumpstart on the day with this nutritious Green Grape Smoothie! It has a unique combination of ingredients that tastes great and feels good.
After the past week of spending time with family and celebrating the life of my grandmother, I’m certainly in need of a cleaner meal plan. I sometimes struggle with portion control and a balance of comfort food vs. healthier food when I’m not at home. When you’re in an emotionally charged environment, or possibly hungover, over-indulgence is almost guaranteed to happen.
Soon, I will be back at home, in a kitchen that I fully know my way around, with all of the herbs and spices I’m familiar with. Back on the healthy train, and back to the gym! Here to help jump-start that is this delectable smoothie. This recipe is pretty high volume, so it is extra filling, but is still light, creamy and sweet. After cooking all day long the last thing you want to do is put a lot of effort into another meal.
I know it can be hard to find banana-free smoothies sometimes, but this one is exceptional! The grapes are SUPER sweet, so if that may throw you for a loop, try using more pear or pumpkin than written. Another welcome addition to this recipe would be some vanilla protein powder, or shelled hemp seeds.
- 2 cups Red Seedless Grapes
- 1 cup Packed Greens, I used lettuce but Kale and Spinach are even better
- 1 Medium Pear, Cored & Chopped
- 1/2 cup Frozen Pumpkin Pureé
- 2 tablespoons mashed avocado
- 3/4 cup Coconut Water
- Ice Cubes, optional
- Place all ingredients into a blender and pureé until smooth! (This is why I love smoothies, so easy)
