The Power of Purple: Smoothie Time!

Our family has found itself in a bit of a rut lately when it comes to healthy mealtime habits. We tend to have the same things over and over again, which gets very boring after a while. Plus, we have a couple of pretty selective eaters on our hands, including a 2 yo who will only eat foods that start with c and end with arb. Hahaha.

I’ve been trying to make simple changes to benefit us all and our overall health goals, so in honor of this being American Heart Month we’ve been amping up our intake of purple!

Yes, you read that right!! Purple produce has been connected to heart health, and we’ve been getting our fill thanks to Welch’s 100% Grape Juice! This juice is made with the amazing Concord grape that is packed with natural plant nutrients known as polyphenols. 

Years of research have shown that these polyphenols are linked to supporting a healthy heart, and Concord grapes may also promote healthy  circulation while keeping your blood pumping and energy flowing.

Welch’s 100% Grape Juice makes it so easy to get your fill!

As delicious and nutritious as the juice is by itself, we’ve discovered that it’s also great for making smoothies!

  1. I love smoothies! And I am the picky eater in my house… so if I think they look yummy then I can definitely get my husband and three-year-old on board! Thanks for sharing! I would never have thought to use grape juice in my smoothie.

    1. I’m the one who’s more selective when it comes to smoothies too, but this one was really delicious!

      Blessings to you!
