Purple grape smoothies are nutritious, as well as incredibly delicious. This fruity concoction is packed with some of the best ingredients nature has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a quick breakfast on the go or a refreshing midday snack, these incredible smoothie ingredients have got you covered for optimal health!
Red Grapes: Grapes are so great and an often overlooked fruit for smoothies. Frozen grapes are not only amazing for snacking on right out of the freezer (like mini popsicles!), but they truly add a texture and taste to a smoothie that you cannot find anywhere else. Grapes are also a good source of copper and vitamins B & K.
Bananas: The best foundation for all smoothies. They lend not only creaminess and fiber but also natural sweetness. (Check out this Banana Soft Serve if your belly is begging for more banana-based recipes!)
Blueberries: Blueberries add not only a deeper color, but also added antioxidants and fiber to this sensational smoothie. Save a few to garnish the top of the smoothie or, if you’re boldly brave, pour the smoothie over a bowlful of blueberries for even more berry health benefits!
Plant-Based Milk: Any dairy-free milk you choose will make this recipe even more creamy. But, if you opt for soy, cashew, or oat, your odds are even better! If you like a sweeter smoothie, choose a sweetened plant milk over an unsweetened one.
From simple swaps to creative combinations, elevate your grape smoothie experience to new heights. Whether you’re looking for a vibrant breakfast option or a revitalizing afternoon snack, these serving ideas will add a burst of color, taste, and texture to this grape-ful recipe.
Storing any remaining grape smoothie is a breeze! Although best enjoyed fresh from the blender, you can simply pour any leftovers into an insulated thermos and keep in the fridge or pour into an ice cube tray. Freeze and then blend up again (with a little bit of grape juice, dairy-free milk, or water) whenever you’re ready. This fruit-filled beverage will last one day in the fridge or up to 2 weeks in the freezer.
A single cup of red grapes has a little over 1 gram of protein and 100 calories.
Yes! 100% grape juice contains no fat, no cholesterol, is low in sodium and has a good amount of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. As well as high levels of antioxidants. As with most foods, eating fresh grapes is even better than drinking the juice for a higher fiber intake.
You’re in luck! This grape smoothie recipe has absolutely no yogurt. It gets its creaminess from blended, ripe bananas and plant-based milk. If you like a very thick smoothie, use soy or canned coconut milk. Or, you can simply decrease the amount of dairy-free milk you add when blending.
