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.
In the meantime, grab hit up a local cider mill, grab your blender and get busy whipping up this protein-packed Green Grape Apple Cider Smoothie. You’ll love the subtle kick from the fresh ginger that balances perfectly with the sweet grapes and tangy cider.
Your straw is waiting.

Apple season is my favorite time of the year! I love the cider in this smoothie! Pinned!
Thank you so much Lisa!
We are obsessed with apple cider around here. This smoothie looks like the perfect way to start our day.
I hope you try it Jamie!
What a gorgeous smoothie! Such a delicious combination of flavors. I have never used grapes in a smoothie, but that is going to change in about 10 minutes when I make this :)
My boys love grapes and smoothies are always my go-to for using up old ones!
I love the idea of putting apple cider in a smoothie! I am a late green smoothie convert, but I am totally addicted now, so this is going on my list to try!
I hope you love it Meghan!! PS Love your snaps!
Ahh, thank you so much :)
Love the recipe, color, eat the rainbow, all of it! So pretty!
Aww thank you! I love colorful foods!
Ooh yummy, this looks so good and healthy. In the UK cider is fizzy and alcoholic, but I’m guessing that’s not the kind of cider you mean ;)
hahah!! Now that would be a tasty smoothie!
I’ve never thought to add apple cider to a smoothie before Liz!! Why not? This looks amazing!
Right?? Why not!
I’m with you, I have a giant vat of apple cider in my fridge right this very second…it’s a staple this time of year. I typically just drink it hot as is or throw it into soups and stews, but I love the idea of putting it in my smoothies!
Seriously!! We never drink it all! BTW It was so great to finally meet you!!
A most interesting combination of flavors – one I’m sure I’d like, but my husband has gotten to where he won’t drink any smoothie with veggies in it, even if he can’t taste them. He just doesn’t like his smoothies ‘contaminated’ with green color, even if all he can taste is chocolate…
That is too funny!!
I need this after my weekend of gluttony in Tahoe!
I loved following along!!!
I love apple cider! I never thought to use it in a smoothie – this looks delicious and so refreshing for breakfast.
We always have it around this time of year so it just made sense!
