Green Power Smoothie

Servings: 1 to 2

This classic green smoothie balances the power of spinach and chia seeds with the sweetness of grapes and apples. If your grapes aren’t frozen when you add them, add three or four more ice cubes for a thicker texture.


  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and cubed (about 9 oz.)
  • 1 packed cup baby spinach (about 1-1/2 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup frozen seedless grapes, red or green (about 3 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, peeled and cubed (about 3 oz.)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. chia seeds
  • 3 medium ice cubes


Put the apple, spinach, grapes, cucumber, lemon juice, chia seeds, ice cubes, and 1/2 cup ice-cold water in a blender. Blend low speed, and slowly increase to high speed; blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Add more ice-cold water as needed to thin the smoothie to your desired consistency. Serve immediately.
