Red Grapes Smoothie

A bowl of Grapes, ideal for weight loss rather than munching fried high calorie snacks in the evening, isn't it ?In my refrigerator's fruit section I found many fruits and yesterday thought let it be a light low fat fruity dinner for me and family.
So planned to prepare Red grapes smoothie and honey glazed apple ring pancakes.Click here for the honey glazed apple ring pancakes recipe
Red grapes are rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C and B, copper, anthocyanins, manganese and potassium. It is also low in calories and high in dietary fiber.
Most nutritionists and health experts would recommend consuming more of red grapes. The reason for this would be the high content of antioxidant resveratrol in red grapes, as compared to green ones.
Red grapes contain anthocyanins, a polyphenol. It is the presence of anthocyanins, which gives red grapes its characteristic color. Anthocyanins are absent in green grapes.
Now are these features not enough for me to get motivated to prepare something out of Red Grapes.
Yes, definitely, so here comes the very recipe for another relishing smoothie, Red grape smoothie.
 
Ingredients:
Red grapes-1 1/2 cup
Yogurt-1 cup
Milk-1/2 cup
Honey- 3-4 tsp, but original recipe calls for sugar-2-3 tsp
Ice cubes-optional
 
Recipe:
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender except ice cubes
Serve with 1-2 ice cubes if preferred chilled.
The cold weather here didn't let me further chill it with ice cubes.
Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
