If you are trying to ‘go green’ and ‘eat clean’, this is the smoothie for you!

In a blender combine:

1/2 cup green grapes frozen (could add 2-3 cubes of ice if your grapes aren’t frozen) 

1/2 -1 apple (green apple is best for waist line)

1 celery stick

juice from 1/2 lime

BLEND:

      Oh good! Glad you like! Do you have an apple tree? Orchard? Or Just like apples!?

      This week I’ve been all about Granny Smiths (which supposedly have the lowest glycemic index of the apples) and almond butter!

        Our house sits in the middle of an old apple orchard, but the trees no longer produce anything worthwhile. However, we eat a LOT of apples at our house (An apple a day… well, you know the rest). I prefer Honeycrisp apples, while my wife prefers Red Delicious. Funny, my usual afternoon snack is a Honeycrsip apple and almond butter!

        Luck you to be amongst the apple trees!!

        I’m a honeycrisp fan myself!

    This is a good reminder to pop some grapes in the freezer! I’ve not done that! We keep frozen other fruit in the freezer–just not grapes!
