We recently started growing wheat grass to juice for all of the numerous health benefits. I am also a huge fan of smoothies because they help me to consume larger quantities of fruits and veggies then I would normally consume. We decided to combine the wheat grass juice into the smoothie and deliciousness occurred!
Here is what was in my super green smoothie:
1 handful of organic cilantro ( this is my preferred system of measurement and when I say approximately its because I basically just eyeball it and dump it in.The only exact measurement is the wheat grass :)
1 handful of organic mixed salad greens
1 handful of organic kale
2 tablespoons of organic hulled hemp seeds
2 tablespoons of organic black chia seeds
1 handful of organic dark sweet cherries frozen
1 handful organic mango chunks frozen
approximately 3 oz of organic beet juice
approximately 3 oz of organic goats milk blueberry kefir
approximately 5 oz non sweetened organic almond milk
3 oz of freshly juiced wheat grass
approximately 1 oz organic pomegranate juice
3 slices of fresh organic ginger
4 slices of fresh organic lemon and peel
Blend it all together and drink! This made three 16 oz glasses.
All of these ingredients are so good for you! I could list them all or I could just be lazy ( or as I like to call it efficient ) and post these lovely well written links to the numerous health benefits of these ingredients.
Hope any of this information was of use and helps to motivate you to create some delicious super green smoothies of your own!
