This purple drink is on of my favorite smoothies. It’s nice to add bananas or yogurt or almond milk for a creamier drink, but sometimes I just want a more juicy smoothie. Like this one:
Blueberry Spinach Smoothie with Grapes – The Purple Heart
The name of the drink is pretty obvious – it’s as purple as can be and of course really good for your heart. You’ve perhaps heard of wine being good for your heart (in moderation..) – and here we have some wonderful grapes : ) . From what I have read – when blending or extracting the grapes you get even more benefits because of the seeds. When you extract/blend/crush the seeds you can absorb a lot of the nutrients you would otherwise miss.
If you want to read more in depth about the benefits of grapes, blueberries and spinach – I found some useful information on this site: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/271156.php
This is what you need for this purple health drink.
