Green Grape Smoothie


This green grape smoothie is the perfect recipe for boosting your immune system and hydrating your body to perfection.

Whether you’re interested in drinking smoothies for weight loss or healthy habits, you’ll reap these benefits and more from our recipes here at Simple Green Smoothies.

After completing your first green smoothie challenge, you’ll gain confidence with your blender and want to try new things. This recipe came from that experience in my own life— and grapes became a hug hit.

Green Smoothies vs Green Juice

When it comes to drinking your greens, there’s two general ways to do it. Juicing your greens gives you a concentrated small amount of liquid. The body can be easily absorbed into your blood stream and benefit your body. Juicing doesn’t contain fiber, which helps your digestive system work properly, burb blood sugar spikes and keeps you full longer.

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 the sugars and nutrients enter your body and helps you stay full longer.

I definitely lean towards Team Smoothie, yet I do think juicing has its benefits. For example, when your body is not able to perform well on it’s own (think chemotherapy, serious health condition, flu recovery, etc). I talk more about this on my podcast interview with Katie Wells from Wellness Mama.

Why add grapes to a smoothie

Grapes aren’t often blended in a smoothie…and it’s a shame! That’s why I’m sharing this recipe on the blog today— to raise awareness to the ‘raw’esomness of grapes. Grapes are 80% water, which makes them blend easily and add extra hydration to your smoothie.

Additionally, grapes contain resveratrol. It’s believed it could help with the prevention and/or treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.

How to make an affordable smoothie

This green grape smoothie recipe is a hit in our house. We love how it has only ingredients I can always find at my local grocery store at an affordable price. That’s the key to making this a healthy habit for life— use ingredients you can always find and always afford. Translation: it’s 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 (seedless work best so you don’t have any chunks)
  • pineapple (I use frozen pineapple to chill the smoothie and save me time chopping it up)
  • oranges (naval oranges are so flavorful and juicy!)

    I really enjoyed Day 2 because I prefer berries in my smoothie. Day 3 was just as good as I occasionally like a sweeter smoothie.

    I love the smoothies with water and grapes! The extra citrus and tropical flavor made this one perfect.

    Love this one! I’ve never really used grapes in smoothies before. You’d figure it would be one of the first things to use considering many commercial juices have grape as a base and they are bountiful but, nope. I think I’ll make it a regular in my smoothies.

    So refreshing! Perfect blend of greens and fruit. I used coconut water for liquid for extra hydration. Great smoothie to start the day or would be a welcome afternoon energy boost.

    Fantastic! I boosted it with a Vitamin C Smoothie Cube so I really got the orange taste Rawking strong in this one. One of my favorites. I froze everything but the orange so it is just at the right amount of chill for me and I did not have to add any additional liquids. If I like coconut water, I could see this turning into a Tropical Paradise.

    Tropical goodness.

    I threw in half an avocado because I love how creamy it makes smoothies.

    I subbed out water and used half coconut water and half Aloe Vera Juice.

    And added in some MCT oil.

    One of my very favorites! The citrusy oranges and fresh pineapple make me think of summer. I like to freeze the grapes so I get a slushy smoothie that reminds me of slushees in the summer as a kid mmmm. So good

    DEFINITELY my favorite! I’m starting over at day 1 and doing it again just for the HEATH of it!
