Time for another yummy smoothie recipe!
I came up with this one while on the hunt for a smoothie that didn't need almond milk. I had ran out and needed something for breakfast. I had some grapes and orange juice in the fridge so I figured I could use those as my liquid base. I looked around (of course, on Pinterest!) and combined a couple recipes to come up with this tasty drink!
The Orange Grape Smoothie
1/2 c. grapes (about 75 g.) (I've used green, red and black grapes all at different times and all three of them taste yummy here.)
4 oz. orange juice
2 oz. coconut milk (If you don't have any on hand you can just use and additional 2oz. of OJ)
1/2 Tbs. chia seed (about 6g)
1/4 c. rolled oats (12g.) (gluten free if needed.)
1/2 c. frozen strawberries (70g)
1/2 frozen banana
1 frozen spinach cube
1/2 scoop protein powder (optional) (I've used Vanilla Spiced Chai as well as regular Vanilla, it is your choice for flavors.)
Place into a high speed blender, in order, and blend. Or, as I usually suggest, use fresh/partially thawed ingredients if you don't have a high speed blender.
This is a great smoothie to start your day. It has all sorts of good-for-you ingredients and it tastes delish! Let me know what you think!
