Spinach and grapes are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients— so this green smoothie is super healthy and yummy. No added sugar or water needed– this is a sweet take on a child's classic sandwich filled with fresh fruit and leafy greens. Grapes are a low glycemic index fruit, so it has a better blood sugar balance. Almond butter is a healthy protein source and the better alternative for a paleo diet because almonds are true nuts that grow on trees (peanuts are actually legumes and grow underground, so not paleo-friendly). Spinach is a powerhouse leafy green packed with vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, manganese for bone health; and plenty of vitamin B2 and B6 for a perfect energy booster!
