Cool Down This Summer with Welch's Grape-Banana Smoothies

I love Welch's 100% Grape Juice because it is a refreshing drink especially when served very cold. I've read that this product is made from 100% Concord Grapes found only in the US and that they are pressed into juice within 8 hours of harvest. That's good to know because it means consumers get the best quality and freshness we deserve! 

Welch's 100% Grape Juice
Welch's 100% Grape Juice (which has been around since 1869!) is packed with anti-oxidants called polyphenols  and Vitamin C that may help promote a healthy immune system. This all-natural juice does not contain any preservatives, no added sugar, no coloring , no flavoring and no cholesterol.  Each 8 oz serving contains about 40 pieces of  Concord grapes.

I was sent a recipe for Grape-Banana Smoothies using Welch's 100% Grape Juice and can't wait to try it at home. Here's sharing it with you, too:

1 small banana, peeled and sliced
1 cup seedless red grapes
1 cup Yogurt
1 cup Welch’s®  100% Grape Juice made with Concord grapes
Small pinch ground cinnamon

Grape Banana Smoothie
1. Place banana and grapes in freezer until firmly frozen (in plastic bag if not using soon).

2. Combine frozen fruits, yogurt, grape juice and cinnamon in blender and blend until combined and smooth. Divide between 2 large glasses. 

Makes 2 servings
