When making a smoothie like this, I use recipes as a guide to proportions. You don't have to be super precise. If you add a few more grapes, don't worry about it. In the end it's all going to be juice! Don't be afraid to adjust the flavors adding more or less of what you like best. Drink up and stay healthy!

Cook's Note

If you do not have a high powered blender, be sure to add greens on the bottom and pulse to combine before running the blender continuously.
