My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me when they came to visit Richmond and I love it. I had actually never tried adding grapes to a smoothie but the green grapes give this recipe just the right amount of sweetness!

How to Make a Creamy Green Smoothie

The first step is to blend the almond milk, protein powder, and spinach until completely smooth. This is the best way to ensure that your smoothie is super creamy and not gritty or grainy.

Once the spinach and protein powder is completely blended, add the avocado, grapes, yogurt, and ice. Blend until smooth.

If you want to make the texture of the smoothie thicker, freeze the grapes overnight and use just a small amount of almond milk. For more ways to create a spoonable smoothie, follow my tips for super thick smoothies!

Creamy Green Smoothie Ingredients

  • Almond milk
  • Spinach
  • Vanilla protein powder

Substitution Ideas

  • You can use any type of milk you like. I generally use almond milk but this recipe is also delicious with oat milk or dairy milk.
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt will make this recipe sweetener but you can use plain Greek yogurt for a lower sugar option.
  • The protein powder is optional so feel free to leave it out if you prefer!

The Best Protein Powder for Smoothies

I’ve tried a lot of different protein powders and it’s hard to pick a favorite! I think whey protein has the best creamy texture, but whey doesn’t always make my stomach feel great. I try to stick to plant-based protein when possible and I love the Tone It Up protein from Target! You can use any protein powder you like, but I recommend sticking to a vanilla flavor!

Can You Freeze Avocado?

Yes! If you have extra avocadoes that are on the verge of spoiling, slice in half and remove the pit. Use a large spoon to scoop out the flesh of the avocado. Freeze the halves in an airtight freezer bag. This is a great way to avoid wasting any avocado!
