Guess you can just call me a "smoothie" junkie! I liked this, and am always looking for combos that add simplicity, and contrast in flavor. As usual, I tried this as posted first. However, to almost every shake/smoothie I make, I add organic canned beans, cottage cheese, and ground flax seeds. This recipe did not let me down. I must admit, the banana/grape combo are a bit of contrast to the usual. Having said that, I always "prepare" my taste buds mentally for the extrordinaire. No let down here! I look at nutrition first. Second, I look at how it can be enhanced. For the squimish on this base, I'd recommend simply adding about 2 Tbsp. peanut butter to the mix. Adds protein and fibre, and makes a real combo of the classic PB& banana as well as the PB & grape jelly sandwiches we all ate as kids. Good basic recipe!
