Green Grape smoothie recipe

Grape Smoothie Recipe

POSTED ON 1.10.2021

What could be better than pineapple and orange? Throw in some green grapes, and you’ve got a citrus + tart kick start to your day.

Grape smoothies are a staple at my house, whenever the grapes don’t get eaten right after bringing them home! This green grape smoothie recipe is brightly delicious, and loved by young and old smoothie drinkers alike. So read on, or skip ahead to start blending right away (no judgement!).

Green smoothies vs green juice

When it comes to drinking your greens, there are two general ways to do it. Let’s break it down, so to explain why I like blending leafy green smoothies like this grape smoothie, rather than juicing.

Juicing fruits + veggies

Juicing greens gives you a concentrated small amount of liquid. The nutrients can be easily absorbed into your blood stream and benefit your body. Juicing doesn’t contain fiber, which helps your digestive system work properly, curb blood sugar spikes and keeps you full longer.

I definitely lean towards #teamsmoothie, yet I do think juicing has its benefits. I talk more about this on my podcast interview with Katie Wells from Wellness Mama.

Blending green smoothies

Blending your greens creates a larger amount of liquid than juicing. It’s thicker due to the fiber retained in the greens. This slows down the speed at which the sugars and nutrients enter your body, as well as helps you stay full longer. Lots of fruit and veggies also have nutritional value in the skin, which can get lost in juicing (like the pith in the orange of this grape smoothie). Finally, juicing takes a LOT more produce than blending, which makes it more expensive.

How to make an affordable grape smoothie (or any smoothie)

This green grape smoothie recipe is a hit in our house. We love how easy it is to find the ingredients for this smoothie at the local grocery store. And they’re also affordable! That’s the key to making this a healthy habit for life— use ingredients you can always find and always afford. It’s definitely okay to skip all the fancy potions and powders that people recommend you add to your smoothie. For this amazing recipe, all you need is:

  • baby spinach (I prefer organic because it’s on the EWG’s dirty dozen list)
  • green grapes (be sure to check for seeds before blending)
  • pineapple (I use frozen pineapple to chill the smoothie and save me time chopping it up)
  • oranges (naval oranges are so flavorful and juicy!)

    This was one of my faves of the 10-Day challenge.

  2. Caroline Hileman says:

    not a fan of adding grapes but good taste

  3. Loren says:

    I enjoyed this one a lot! Added turmeric ginger smoothie cubes and pumpkin and hemp seeds. Great way to end the ten day smoothie challenge!

  4. Dory says:

    Perfect smoothie to finish the challenge. It was delicious!

  5. Laura Perkins says:

    Very tasty smoothie! My entire family loved it.

  6. Shelby Foreman says:

    I love pineapples in smoothies! The combination of sweet grapes and oranges is very refreshing!

  7. Elizabeth Reyes says:

    This is one of.my favorite smoothies! I meal prepped it so it was super easy to add water to Mason jar , throw the orange into blender and tada! Done! So delicious! Even my husband loved it.

  8. Cynthia says:

    Green grapes are not my fav in a smoothie because of the texture p. Otherwise yummy!

  9. Sloane Grey says:

    Yummy!! We replaced water with coconut water, and oranges with mangos, because we were out of oranges. We also added coconut milk smoothie cubes! It was be tasty!

  10. Alannah says:

    I loved the tart sweetness from the mix of citrus and grapes. Definitely a favorite in my book!

  11. Shari Guymon says:

    This smoothie was alright, but I like pineapple and oranges so much, that I would prefer to just eat the fruit separately and have a spinach salad. I know that smoothies are an easy way to get multiple nutrients all at once, but there are other combinations that I prefer to this one for my smoothies.

  12. Erin says:

    This was a 10/10. Loved the citrus from the orange, loved the sweetness + tartness from the grapes, loved that it didn’t have (or need) banana! I added collagen powder and chia seeds, and gulped it down.

  13. Susan Smith says:

    This one is sweet enough to use as an after-dinner treat!

  14. Ajcdav says:

    Good combo of ingredients that taste good together. I add protein powder to my smoothies, and found that any recipes that call for just water never taste great. I think I would either omit the powder or add some type of plant based milk to help hide the flavor.

  15. Lynne Miles says:

    This was on the sweeter side and super thick. I added a little water and this went down well.

  16. Amy B says:

    Good. I’d rather use a whole orange.

  17. Vashti Phillips says:

    Such a pleasure to participate in this challenge. Thanks so much. Enjoy being a Rawstar. Pineapple Orange was delightful Sunday treat.

  18. Jess Spitsbergen says:

    I enjoyed this one, but just not a fan of grapes in a smoothie.

  19. Ren says:

    Anything with orange is my favorite. I leave the peel on!

  20. Venetria Patton says:

    I made it with kale, but I think it would be a 5 with spinach. I also added flax seeds.

  21. Deborah says:

    Substitution Notice: I used one teeny tiny clementine and papaya in lieu of orange. Surprisingly. I liked this one a lot better than I thought I would. In the past, when I used grapes, I could not taste the grape, and while it was subtle it was there this time. Perhaps because I did not overpower it with orange (and usually when I use oranges I add some zest, which really makes the orange stand out). No one fruit stood out and I think that is why I liked it.

  22. Courtney says:

    Very sweet & refreshing – all my favorite ingredients here!

  23. Akasha Villalobos says:

    Had to sub cherries for grapes, but it was delicious. Just a bit on the sweet side. I liked it even more after I added an anti-inflammatory smoothie boost cube.

  24. Sarah Jasinski says:

    This is hands down my favorite one! I love the citrus and pineapple combination. Though, in my guide it’s called pineapple orange.

  25. Grace says:

    Citrus is so refreshing! I like someone’s comment calling this smoothie “sunshine in a glass.” I didn’t have grapes. Added cucumber, pumpkin cubes and chia seeds.

  26. Amy Wheeler says:

    Delicious!! I was out of orange and replaced it with mango. The tangy sweetness made this a favorite of mine.

  27. Mindy says:

    Didn’t have grapes, so used peaches instead. It’s ok, not my favorite, but I’ll make it again when I have grapes!

  28. Stephanie H says:

    This smoothie definitely needed something sweet to balance the sour taste. Other than that the flavor was good.

  29. Beatrix says:

    Very fresh

  30. Kathi says:

    Great taste! Refreshing.
