Green smoothies are vibrant, trendy, and good for you, too—but I've had my fair share of not-so-tasty blends. I'm all about throwing veggies into the mix, but they have to be balanced by the right mix of ingredients.

Enter green grapes. Not only do they add a gorgeous pop of color, but they also bring a juicy freshness to a spinach-based smoothie. In fact, the juice from the grapes will act as your liquid, helping blend everything together into a healthy one-bowl breakfast.

I topped this smoothie with yogurt chips and chia seeds, but fresh pineapple or coconut flakes would be delicious as well. Enjoy!

Combine the first four smoothie ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of almond milk until well combined. Pour into a bowl, and top with sliced banana, chia seeds, and yogurt chips.
