Sweet and tart with a subtle kick of ginger, this Apple Cider Grape Smoothie is packed with nutrients and protein to give you energy all day long!
Earlier this month I pledged to #EatTheRainbow in celebration of Pink Ribbon Produce’s 10th Anniversary campaign in conjunction with Price Chopper and other national retailers but today I’m suggesting we #DrinkTheRainbow instead.
Apple cider season is in full swing here in Michigan which means we almost always have a jug or two sitting in the fridge. Ideal for adding natural sweetness and tartness to smoothies, I couldn’t wait to incorporate fresh cider to this creamy smoothie made with green grapes, banana and Greek yogurt.
Drinking a smoothie packed with fruit and veggies, along with staying active, is the best defense you have in the fight against breast cancer. In fact, Pink Ribbon Produce has raised over $500,000 for breast cancer awareness and prevention.
