Here is another grape combo that I loved for a couple days. Grapes are so easy! Only blend up the good ones through. Notice I used a healthy slice of pineapple.
- 1 thick slice of ripe pineapple peeled and cored
- 1 branch seedless grapes (about 1 ½ cups washed and stemmed)
- Copule dates (I wanted this one really sweet)
- 1+ cup coconut milk
- 1 bowl lettuce
- 1 probiotic – Optional
Stack in blender:
And give it a 60-second whirl.
Notice the grape skins don’t break down all the way. It gives the smoothie a peppery look, but make no mistake about it, this one is a sweet dream!
One thing that I’ve noticed when drinking green smoothies is that you want to drink the entire quart in 15 to 20 minutes and you want to make sure you mix lots of saliva with it. The more you chew it, the more your saliva glands respond by releasing digestive enzymes. The more effort you put into mixing the enzymes with the green smoothie in your mouth, the better it digests. Same holds true with eating fruit plan. Don’t just bite off a mouthful and swallow.
