Plush Purple Grape Smoothie


black-grape-smoothieWhile looking through my nearly barren refrigerator for a snack I discovered that it was more barren than I suspected. I opened the fruit storage bin and found some dark purple (black) grapes and then turned to eye my blender. I wasn’t sure that I had any smoothie recipes for purple or black grapes so I went online and found this recipe. I don’t mind grape skin and to be honest my Vitamix blender liquefies most everything, but if your blender doesn’t, you may want to peel the grapes first. I don’t recommend it, it adds to the texture.

This recipe is very basic which I like, but a few recipe twists can help add flavor. I would use almond milk instead of milk and I would add some blueberries to round out the flavor. At the time I had these ingredients so I stuck with them and enjoyed my Purple Grape Smoothie.

  • 2 cups seedless black grapes
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp sugar (or to taste) I personally like Stevia but the recipe I found called for sugar.
  • ice-cubes or crushed ice (optional)

Serves 2.

    Great smoothie! But the sugar ruins it… take honey or one sweet apple instead.

    This is really good. I would recommend low fat or nonfat flavored yogurt and frozen berries of the same flavor (I used blackberries).
