A unique nongmo hybrid grape that mimicks the taste of cotton candy.  When you freeze these and use them later it just adds such a unique flavor.  Only available seasonal and may not be available every where.  This is an excellent substitute for candy.

5 frozen muscadines – the Beauty of smoothies is that you get the added benefits of the whole part of the fruit, including the seeds.  In this recipe whole muscadines are added and by using a Nutribullet you are able to have it pulverized so that the taste of the seeds is blended in with everything else.  Causing you to be able to take advantage of all the Muscadine has to offer and it is much that it has to offer.  Rich in soluble and insoluble fat consuming the entire food gives you access to all it’s rich nutrients.
