You wanna know what’s really good? Frozen grapes. For some reason I love eating frozen grapes way more than fresh grapes. I guess because they are mainly water, when they freeze they have an awesome texture I just can’t get enough of.
I’m gonna give you a quick recipe for frozen grapes today. I wanted to whip up something intricate and awesome for the blog this weekend, but I have been out of commission all week with a sinus infection (thank you, China’s disgusting air quality), and I’m pretty sure the only food I actually have in the house is frozen grapes a few Greek yogurts.This smoothie is really yummy. The flavor is really mild, a perfect base for tons of add-ins. I went the purist route, making it with just green grapes, bananas, Greek yogurt, almond milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can add oats or flax seeds for a bit more substance, or even peanut butter for an awesome PB&J smoothie.
I really love smoothies. I try not to eat them every day, because even though they are healthy, I know they are loaded with sugar (even too much natural sugar can be bad for you). They are basically nature’s milkshake.
This smoothie is a good choice for breakfast or a quick snack because both grapes and bananas are relatively low on the glycemic index, meaning they won’t cause a huge spike in blood sugar when eaten in moderation.Ingredients:
- Approximately 15 frozen green grapes
- 1 small banana (frozen)
- 2 large spoonfuls of Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you like your smoothie)
- a sprinkle of cinnamon
- Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse to desired consistency
- Taste and adjust for flavoring (for example add honey if not sweet enough for your taste, mine was perfect)
- Pig out
I repurposed this cute glass jar from one of Lizzie’s smoothies that I ordered from Kate and Kimi. It’s a convenient size for a quick snack in the middle of a busy Saturday afternoon of cleaning and laundry (woohoo, adulthood).
