The great thing about smoothies is that they are so easy to make. As long as you have quality ingredients and a great blender, the possibilities are endless. There are certain ingredients that are popular when it comes to smoothie making like bananas, pineapple and strawberries. Even vegetables are making more of an appearance like beets and green lettuces. However, grape smoothies aren’t something I run into very often. So when I saw a Green Grape Smoothie recipe created by Jackie, the blogger for Vegan Yack Attack, I knew I had to share it. What I also like is that you get added health benefits from the packaged greens and the healthy fat coming from the avocado. Click here to see the original recipe post.
If you’re looking for vegan (both savory and sweet) as well as raw recipes, the Vegan Yack Attack might be a great resource for you. Some of the dishes I thought looked delicious included the Pumpkin Chili Empanadas, Spicy Mushroom Eggplant Tacos and Carrot Cake Latkes. I bet you’ll find some tasty options on your own as well. Until then, enjoy this Green Grape Smoothie in good health.
