Sweet Green Smoothie

Ingredients

[for TWO servings]

  • 2 cups of green grapes
  • 1 medium green apple
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup of pineapple chunks
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ cup of coconut water
  • 1 T flax seed

Directions

Optional – If you have a juicer, juice the grapes and green apple first. Combine the fresh juice with the remaining ingredients in the blender. Blend well. Chill before serving.

Observations

If you do end up using a juicer for the grapes and apple, I think you’ll find the consistency more like a juice than a smoothie. It was drinkable and light, but I was hoping for something a little more filling. In the future, I may skip juicing the apple, and instead, put it straight into the blender. I think it would help thicken it up.
