preparation

1.  If you are using a wheatgrass juicer that allows juicing vegetables and fruits along with leafy greens, then you can keep adding the ingredients one by one into the feeder of the juicer.

2.  Strain the juice to remove pulp and enjoy! Wheatgrass juicer yields better quality and quantity of juice. If you are a regular green juicer, prefer buying this juicer to enjoy more benefits.

3.  If you are using a blender, it is best to roughly chop the wheatgrass first to allow juicing without clogging or breaking the blade. Add a little water and all the other ingredients and blend. Now strain it for a smooth juice.

Cooks' note:
If you have just hopped on the wheatgrass wagon, go slowly. Start with an ounce of juice a day and slowly move up to 2 ounces a day. High wheatgrass juice dose has been reported to make some people nauseous and sick because of its potent qualities.

Wheatgrass juice is a cleanser and not a food for a daily long time consumption. Extended period of consumption can cause aversion and should be strictly avoided.

The best time to drink wheatgrass juice is in the morning, on an empty stomach. Consumption after a meal can also make you feel nauseous.
