Recently while rifling through my freezer for smoothie ingredients, my hand brushed the giant Ziploc bag where my wheatgrass pulp resides, and that’s when it came to me: wheatgrass smoothies!
I have been dying to use all the wheatgrass pulp I have accumulated over the summer, so I jumped at the chance to use it in yet another unique way.
Wheatgrass smoothies, yes!
I love smoothies and I love wheatgrass, so it’s shocking to think that I am just now making wheatgrass smoothies. Heck, I’ll put anything in a smoothie – fruits, vegetables, everything but the kitchen sink.
But up until now I hadn’t even thought of using my mass amounts of frozen wheatgrass pulp in one of my daily smoothies.
Why they’re the perfect combination
The beauty of a smoothie is that you can pack in as many fruits or vegetables as the blender will allow, making them one of the easiest ways to meet daily nutrient requirements.
And it’s perfect for those who find vegetables hard to swallow. I know a few vegetable haters myself, and I have managed to sneak some into their lives thanks to smoothies. The beauty of wheatgrass is that it is one of the most nutrient rich foods that Mother Nature has blessed us with, and using it in a smoothie takes it to a whole new level. Wheatgrass completes it!
A quick note on why wheatgrass rocks
I will never grow tired of professing my love for this grass’ ability to blend so well with other ingredients. It’s very rapidly becoming my number one favorite anything-ingredient, and I am having a blast exploring it!
But, I’ve been so focused on using up all my wheatgrass pulp that I haven’t been juicing it all that much. That’s resulted in a wheatgrass pulp shortage around here, which is why I’ve decided to upgrade my sprouting system.
Up until now I had been growing a very small supply. But with my newfound love for wheatgrass pulp, my setup can no longer feed my needs.
On 877myjuicer.com, there are so many options for people looking to sprout their own wheatgrass, from small setups that fit easily on the countertop, like The FreshLife Automatic Sprouter, to something more suitable to my demands such as the Sproutman Wheatgrass Grower. The Sproutman grows three racks of wheatgrass in one shot, which makes this girl very excited!
I think it’s fairly safe to say that I am in love with wheatgrass. But even if your love doesn’t run as deep as mine, I promise that you will love it in a smoothie!
