I have only found concord grapes at the farmers’ market, but they are fantastic, their flavor reminds me of grape jelly or grape soda that I haven’t had since I was a kid. These grapes also have seeds and a thick skin which makes them a little difficult to eat from the vine, so I blended them into a smoothie. I added spinach for nutrition and to balance the sweet flavor of the grapes.
I love adding spinach to smoothies, the flavor can’t be detected and it even adds a smooth texture:
- 1 pint concord grapes
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
- 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon flax meal
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves
- 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
- Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until smooth. Serve cold.
