Smoothie Sunday: Grape Smoothie
I have a bit of a complicated relationship with grape. As a fruit I enjoy grapes. I can just sit and eat grapes as a snack or dessert and everything is a-ok. But yet I haaaate grape flavored things. To me a lot of grape flavored things don’t actually taste all that much like the grapes I eat as a snack. Or perhaps grape flavored things just bring about flashbacks to having to take grape flavored medicine as a kid. Either way, to this day I still generally avoid grape flavored things. But since grapes as a fruit are good, I figured a grape smoothie was worth a try.
- 1 cup seedless grapes
- 1 5.3 oz container vanilla yogurt
- 1 tbsp grape jelly
- 5-6 ice cubes
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- Pinch of salt
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the lemon juice and salt and pulse until well combined. Pour into a tall glass, drink, and enjoy!
Note: the amount of salt and lemon juice you need may vary based on how sweet the grape jelly you use is. As always, taste as you go and make adjustments as necessary.
