Grape Smoothie Recipe (with Step by Step Photos)
Ingredients in a Grape Smoothie
Frozen Grapes. Because of a grape’s juice and water content, we do not recommend adding any additional ice to this smoothie recipe. Therefore, you will want your grapes to be completely frozen for the best results. Allow your grapes at least 2 hours to freeze, or allow them to freeze overnight for the best smoothies. You may use any kind of grapes that you prefer.
Apple Juice. Apple juice is our recommended form of liquid to use in this smoothie. It will help to add a mild flavor that does not overpower your grapes. You may also use grape juice as a substitute if you prefer. For this recipe, we do not recommend using milk or orange juice.
Yogurt. Adding a little bit of vanilla or plain yogurt will help to add a slight bit of substance to your smoothie, without overpowering your grapes.
How to make an affordable grape smoothie (or any smoothie)
Before you begin making your smoothie, it is best to buy fresh grapes, remove them from their stem, and thoroughly rinse them in cold water. After they dry, transfer the grapes to a plastic freezer bag and freeze.
When your grapes are frozen solid, add them to your blender along with yogurt and juice. Blend until smooth.
Pour your smoothie from the blender into your serving glass. If desired top with whipped cream, then serve right away. Enjoy!
Any variety of grapes may be used for this recipe as long as they are seedless and have been completely frozen.
You may also choose to add a type of flavoring to this recipe if you wish. ½ tsp of vanilla or ¼ tsp of lemon juice often add a nice little bit of additional flavor.
