How to Juice Wheatgrass

The key nutrient you get from wheatgrass is chlorophyll which to reap the full rewards you need to consume fresh and it must come from a living plant.  

Chlorophyll does so much for you - it will detoxify your body, neutralizes toxins and purifies your liver.

Now that we know the benefits, let's look at how to juice wheatgrass properly...

How to Juice Wheatgrass

1) Do not use a blender, always use a juicer when using wheatgrass. You won't get the full benefit of the chlorophyll by using a blender. 

2) Wash the leaves with cold tap water to clean off any unwanted dirt or bacteria.

3) Cut up the wheatgrass leaves up finely 

4) Start adding water as you are riding up the leaves

5) Strain leaves through a strainer or muslin. 

6) Squeeze the liquid from the pulp.

7) Repeat the process again with the same leaves. 

8) I like to then add other ingredients like carrots and apples to my juice to make the wheatgrass more palatable. 

How to Make Wheatgrass Juice

Making Wheatgrass Juice - Tips

  • Try using the fresh leaves, I find fresh leaves make for a tastier juice. Also, make sure to check your leaves before juicing as mould tends to spread quickly. 
  • Try using fresh leaves ideally, rather than using a powder form of wheatgrass. You can use the powdered form by all means but if you can use the fresh leaves to get the full benefits.
  • Ideally, drink your wheatgrass juice straight after juicing for maximum benefit or after 30 minutes of chilling in the refrigerator. I wouldn't store it for longer than 24 hours in the fridge as it can go bad relatively quickly.
  • A quarter cup of wheatgrass will intern make a shot or wheatgrass juice.

I hope you find these tips and techniques useful. Trust me, have a glass of wheatgrass juice daily and you will soon notice the difference and be glad you started.
