Recipe posted by Palouse Brand on March 22, 2016
We are excited to show you how to make the most amazing wheatgrass smoothies from sprouted wheat berries without leaving your kitchen . . . “because there’s a “little farmer” in all of us,” right? Growing wheatgrass is easy and fun. If you have children, why not bring out the “little farmer” in them too. This is a terrific way to get everyone interested in healthy smoothies and become part of the process. Why not freeze your smoothie in ice cube trays for interim daily poppers? With very little effort you can create superior tasting wheatgrass smoothies from start to finish. Our wheatgrass is ready to cut and use in just 5-6 days!
First, let us tell you about the benefits of wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is grown from the wheat seed (sometimes called wheat berries ). Did you know some research shows wheatgrass has been popularized as a health food as well as a medicinal supplement? This “superfood” is packed with vitamins, minerals and much more! In addition to using cut wheatgrass for your wheatgrass smoothies as we do in our delicious smoothie recipes, you can make wheatgrass juice or wheatgrass shots (usually 2-4 ounces) to use as well.
We share this healthy smoothie recipe in hopes it may become one of your favorite breakfast smoothie recipes that jump starts your morning, and adds quick energy to your day. Perfect for those hot days of summer and much healthier than soda!
Cooking Tip: This refreshing fruit smoothie is the consistency of a slushy. If you would like to “power drink” instead of sip, you may wish to reduce the amount of ice and increase the Coconut Water.
How to Grow Wheatgrass
You can also grow wheatgrass in festive containers and make great center pieces like we did in the picture above. You can also grown them in Easter baskets, eliminating the need for the traditional or plastic grass.
