Wheat Grass Juice - Nature's Green Super Food

Wheatgrass juice is amazing stuff. This potent green juice is one of the best sources of chlorophyll.

A shot of fresh wheatgrass juice is my favorite green superfood. Packed full of easily digestible vitamins and minerals, it is able to help heal and detoxify the body.

To maximize the health benefits of drinking wheatgrass drink it fresh, straight after juicing. This may mean a trip to your local juice bar - if your lucky enough to live near one - or juicing your own at home.

Juicing Wheatgrass

Juicing wheatgrass can be a little scary at first. It is seriously green, and powerfully medicinal.

To make your own wheatgrass juice you need a wheatgrass juicer and a good supply of wheat grass.

It's easy to grow wheatgrass for juicing. Visit my how to grow wheatgrass page to learn more, or you may prefer to leave the growing to someone else and buy your wheatgrass online.

Samson masticating 6 in 1 juicer

I enjoy growing wheatgrass - it looks beautiful on the windowsill when the light shines through it! I like to make a green drink using my trusty Samson Juicer.

To fill a 2oz (55ml) shot glass I use 3 small handfuls of cut grass. I've found the easiest way to juice the grass is to have it all pointing the same way, and feed it base first into the juicer.

How much wheatgrass juice should you drink?

Wheatgrass juice is very potent, and more isn't necessary better. A daily drink of 1oz (about 30ml) of wheatgrass is recommended to start with, increasing to 2oz (60ml) after a couple of weeks as long as it makes you feel good. It's a good idea to drink it on an empty stomach. A shot glasses holds 2oz of juice.

When I first started to drink wheatgrass I used to dilute it with the same amount of water, and drink it slowly. These days I tend to hold my nose (I just don't like the smell!) and drink it down in one.

Wheatgrass Juice Recipe

As an alternative to drinking in neat, you can also add it to freshly squeezed apple juice. I like the following recipe for apple, celery, lemon and wheatgrass juice.

  • 2 apples
  • 2 stems of celery
  • half a lemon
  • 3 bunches of wheatgrass - enough to make 2oz (60ml)of wheatgrass juice.
How to Make
  1. Wash the fruit and vegetables
  2. Core the apples, and peel the lemon. If the lemon is organic and you like a really strong lemon taste then leave the peel on.
  3. Chop apples, celery, and lemon to fit your juicer
  4. Juice the wheatgrass in your wheatgrass juicer.
  5. Juice the apples, lemon, and celery.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
