Who needs high calorie bread to get the flavor and fiber of a scrumptious peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Try this smoothie recipe for a twist on an old stand-by. The peanut butter and grapes taste like peanut butter and grape jelly while the wheat germ adds a nutty, almost whole grain bread flavor. Vanilla yogurt gives you extra protein and calcium for a healthy alternative to a sandwich. This smoothie recipe provides about 40 less calories and 20% more calcium, 30% more vitamin C, and 5% more iron than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread.

1 cup grapes
1/2 cup grape juice
1 tbsp wheat germ
