Grape Smoothie Recipe

PUBLISHED: 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.

 SHARE:

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!)

  1. Kim says:

    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.

  31. Judith Walter says:

    Great flavor and texture. Used kale and added chia seeds

  32. Melanie Skinner says:

    I’m so sorry mine is posting twice, but it keeps saying I already posted what I typed. When I retype it ..it posts both. ‍♀️

  33. Melanie Skinner says:

    I added vanilla bone broth protein shake and avocado to mine. This is my favorite.

  34. Melanie Skinner says:

    This one is my favorite. I added my vanilla bone broth protein powder and avocado. Yummy!

  35. Danna says:

    Very tasty with bright flavors – sunshine in a glass!

  36. Titilola Palmer says:

    Love the refreshing flavor of this combination of fruits. I was not sure if I would enjoy this one but I really did and This one is a new favorite and go to.

  37. Sabrina Schroeder says:

    Very fresh tasting. I made a double batch for tomorrow too.

  38. Kathy Overstreet says:

    What a bright & refreshing smoothie!! A perfect one to finish our 10-day challenge with!!!!!

  39. Eve says:

    I never would’ve thought of putting grapes with pineapple and orange and wow delicious!!

  40. Kimberly Wade says:

    Another delicious smoothie. This one is on the sweet side.

  41. Susan says:

    Tropical. Orange forward. Ginger would make a good addition.

  42. Susan says:

    Last smoothie of the 10 day smoothie challenge. This is my fav! Although I have a lot of favorites. I subbed mango fir the grapes n added a whole banana. It’s was sweet, invigorating n delightful❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  43. Laura says:

    Super tasty! Love it!

  44. Lauren Hensley says:

    This one was one of my favs. Loved the flavor combo!

  45. Anna says:

    Love the ingredients in this one!

  46. Kathleen says:

    Didn’t seem as flavorful as some of the others. Still good. I added dragon fruit and your Turmeric Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Cubes… YUM!

  47. Tina says:

    One of my favorites. Will be a new go to!

  48. Aurilia Hill says:

    I never would have thought to put grapes in a smoothie, I loved the taste of this one.

  49. Judith Wslter says:

    I liked this one. I used frozen grapes , kale and chia seeds. Yum

  50. Suzie says:

    No organic grapes still at the stores here so did organic blueberries in place of the grapes. I also added a coconut bomb to this today. The flavor that the coconut bomb adds I think takes a bit away from the smoothie – so may add more fruit to off set the dominance of the coconut bomb next time I make it. Good smoothie overall.

  51. Dora Suarez says:

    Very refreshing and all notes complimented each other well… I actually blended mine using Gingerade Kombucha so it added a little kick. I did a double batch so that I can have more of this tomorrow for a post-workout (long gravel ride) recovery drink. Can’t wait.

  52. Tara Pittman says:

    What a great way to use up grapes. My family hates sour grapes so I use them my smoothie

  53. Susan Smith says:

    Family favorite – delicious!

  54. Colleen says:

    I don’t have a fancy blender, but the consistency of this smoothie didn’t turn out great for me. Maybe I need to add more water than the recipe required. The taste is pretty good, sweet like grape juice!

  55. Evelyn says:

    Love this one…so good almost drank in on gulp!

  56. Dieta says:

    Another wonderful smoothie….very refreshing…still have not tried all your smoothies yet, but so far have not found one we did not like…thank you.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Yay, that’s awesome, Dieta! I love that you’re trying all the recipes. 🙂

  57. Gillian says:

    I started the challenge on 4th Jan. This is definitely one of my favourites! I blended it yesterday as I had some grapes that needed eating. Will keep on blending and going for the plant based meals. I am feeling much better and the smoothies are helping to keep the unhealthy snacks at bay! Thank you for all the recipes in the challenge. I will go back and try the ones I missed.

  58. Patti says:

    Great smoothie! Very refreshing! And made all 10 days!

  59. Lynda Gregory says:

    I didn’t start until Jan. 6. I am definitely feeling better. Make my smoothie in the morning for breakfast to start my day. I suffer from osteoarthritis. Is there a good smoothie to help with that?

  60. Cynthia says:

    Still not a fan of the grapes, but love the other flavors.

  61. Melissa Chiappone says:

    This was by far one of my favorites! So tangy! I love that in a smoothie! Adding citrus to my smoothies has always been so refreshing. One of my go to’s has an orange, lime and lemon in it! SOOOO GOOD!

  62. Joan says:

    I hate to rate this one at all because I had to change it up so much. I didn’t have grapes and I can’t eat pineapple. Instead, I tried mango and blueberries. I’m just glad I made something to complete the 10 days!!!

  63. Yolanda Moneyhun says:

    I switched the grapes for blueberries because we had eaten all of them from the last recipe. But we also didn’t like the other smoothie that included them. So, with blueberries this is delicious. Thanks for all the recipes that came with this challenge! I have enjoyed it and will continue to blend.

  64. Robin J says:

    By far my favorite smoothie in this challange

  65. Lmtorres says:

    Adding grapes was a new for me but it was still good. Not my fav hit of make it again.

  66. Atlanta says:

    I ended up liking grapes in smoothies. The 10
    Day challenge was fun!

  67. Melanie Skinner says:

    Enjoyed this one too. Thanks for the Challenge.

  68. Heather says:

    Loved this one! Added herbs for another bingo square, cilantro really does go with everything 🙂

  69. Margaret says:

    Day 10 – Citrus Crush

    What a delightful way to end the challenge. Delicious mix of flavors!

  70. Anna says:

    So yummy! Great bright green colour. One of my favs.

  71. Windy says:

    Not a fan of the grapes but it was still good

  72. Erik Preston says:

    The green grape smoothie tasted okay. It has a nice citrus flavor which was sweet but just taste like the fruits went together good.

  73. Tammy Verhulst says:

    Love this one.

  74. Sue says:

    I’m doing this kind of late, but I wanted to get all of the Bingo squares filled and all I had left was to add Kale. I’ve searched all week for kale and every store I went to was out. I drove almost 2 hours each way to get the kale for this smoothie today and it was worth it. I really like it. I can taste the difference, it adds a little zing to it. The orange, grapes, and pineapple seem to blend into a tropical flavor. I really like it.

  75. Shelley says:

    I really liked this smoothie, the last one of the 10 day challenge. I put in coconut water instead of water and very black grapes. Sort of had a tropical taste to it. A keeper for me

  76. Mary says:

    Honestly this one was not my favorite. I was a bit surprised. I really thought I would enjoy this on first sip. I love every ingredient in this smoothie but I was surprised by the taste. In the future, I may add something to this to get to something I like.

  77. Camille Maxfield says:

    This one is not my favorite, but we made an absolutely delicious one! Thank you challenge!

  78. Ame W says:

    Crushingly good!

  79. Leslie says:

    I found the smoothie quite thin so I added a banana coconut flakes and chia seeds. Also substituted cherries for grapes as grapes are very pricey right now and added cucumber for added hydration. I am a Rawkstar, made it to day 10!

  80. MIllie M says:

    Day 10 Citrus Crush Love Love Loved this smoothie. Great citrusy flavor.

  81. Sandra S says:

    This is a delicious dreamy smoothie. I liked the smoothie challenge so much I’m going to start over tomorrow.

  82. Christine says:

    I like this one the best so far. And it was so neat to go out in my front yard and get orange off our orange tree to put in it. This was a first for me, since I’m from New York! it was very good and my husband and I really liked it. thank you.

  83. Jeremy says:

    Great day 10. This was fun. Great new recipes to try. Will make several again as regulars.

  84. Jill Stowe says:

    Love green grapes in my smoothies. Will make it again!

  85. Nicole says:

    Here for Rawkstar Bingo to rate Day 10 smoothie on the blog! 5/5! Uplifting citrus treat!

  86. Joy says:

    Oh boy! The last smoothie of the challenge! It was delicious . I got quite stressed about an hour ago thinking what will I do tomorrow. I jumped up and started preparing the first 5 days again!
    Thank you for the challenge it’s made a great change to both myself and husband……

  87. Leasa says:

    I will make this one again! Yummy

  88. Tammy says:

    I swapped the orange for mango due to a sensitivity, plus added 1 cup water. However the swap worked well. I really enjoyed this and will make it again.

  89. Laura says:

    Super tasty!

  90. Jeanette says:

    Another great smoothie! Love the taste of this one.

  91. Efef Salem Wood says:

    Unfortunately my husband ate the last orange so I had to substitute with peaches and apple. I was so looking forward to it. But it was still good. Oh well I will be continuing so I will have a chance to have it again.

  92. Peggy shaw says:

    If there was a way a way to put 5+ I would.

  93. Christine Miller says:

    So delish and refreshing!

  94. Deanna Perlmutter says:

    Citrus crush was my favorite! The grapes orange & pineapple are perfect together! This was so delicious & I highly recommend!

  95. Jo says:

    What a nice drink to end the challenge on. It too was very well balanced with the citrus showing through. I enjoyed all ten, but my favorite was day-2 which for myself, I renamed tutti frutti (sorry) but it did make me smile. Thanks again . . .
