    Groovy Smoothie

    Ingredients:
    1 lb red or purple seedless grapes
    1 package frozen blueberries
    1 8oz can frozen apple juice concentrate
    16 oz plain yogurt
    1/2 cup dark brown sugar
    8 oz water
    1 cup vanilla flavored almond milk

    Directions:
    let blue berries thaw
    put apple juice and water in large pitcher to thaw
    put grapes in blender and blend on high to liquify
    pour grape juice in pitcher
    put blue berries and almond milk in blender a few at a time and blend on high. don't try to blend all of them at once unless you're using fresh blueberries.
    pour into pitcher
    add yogurt and sugar and stir with large spoon

    tastes like grape bubblegum. Groovy!

    Mellow as a Cello Smoothie

    Ingredients:
    1 8oz can frozen apple juice concentrate
    4 navel oranges
    1 lb red or purple seedless grapes
    8 oz vanilla flavored almond milk
    16 oz plain yogurt

    Directions:

    put apple juice and almond milk in large pitcher to thaw
    blend grapes to liquid
    pour grape juice in pitcher
    separate oranges into sections and divide each section in half
    put in blender.
    pout orange juice in pitcher
    add yogurt and stir with large spoon

    taste like orange julius, Mello as a cello

    Note: I use frozen apple juice concentrate because there is more apple and less water so you get a thicker smoothie
    Enjoy

    Thanks for sharing!

    ...I'm all for a drink that tastes like an Orange Julius!

    ....But, that "grape bubblegum" endorsement leaves me kinda hesitant.

    It's "redeemed" somewhat cuz it's a natural drink. ...still worth trying.
