Let’s be honest here…wheatgrass juice tastes a lot like grass. You know when someone mows their lawn and you woman_optsmell that grass? That’s pretty much what it tastes like. Some people may not like it. We will drink it and tolerate the grassy flavor because of the tremendous benefit to our bodies. Well guess what? Some people like the taste of wheatgrass. Some people will develop a liking for it over time and some just do the shot quickly to get it over with. Not everyone will fall in love with the taste of wheatgrass but we can still be a little creative and make it taste better and make it more pleasurable to drink.

So you can have your cake and eat it too…or have your chlorophyll and enjoy it too…however you want to put it. Below are some of our favorite recipes. These are simple to make and can be used in your electric or manual juicer.

You also have the added benefit of adding nutritional value to your juice when you add other ingredients. Don’t be afraid to add more of what you like or experiment a little bit. If you’re like us you will find a combination that you love and will even crave. Notice that each of the juice combinations begins with a 2-oz shot of wheatgrass.

1. Wheatgrass Lemonade

  • 2-oz shot of wheatgrass
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 1 lemon

This one has a little zest to it. Peel the yellow part of the skin off the lemon making sure to leave the white part underneath. Also, make sure you juice your wheatgrass first. This way the fruit or vegetable will be able to wash any remaining wheatgrass juice from your juicer.

 

 2. Beet, Grass and Berries

  • 2-oz shot of wheatgrass
  • 8 strawberries
  • 1/2  a beet

Surprisingly, beets and strawberries taste pretty good together. If you are using a single auger juicer, like a manual juicer, cut the beet into a few slivers so that it’s easier for the auger to draw it in.

 

3. Grapes of Wheatgrass Wrath

  • 2-oz shot of wheatgrass
  • 10 grapes with seeds
  • 1 carrot

We prefer to buy the seeded grapes because of the nutrients found in the seeds. Once again, it’s a little easier if you cut your carrot into a couple of slivers and feed it into your single auger vertically.

 

4. WABC’s

  • 2-oz shot of wheatgrass
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1/2 beet
  • 1 carrot

Remember if you cut the round fruits into slivers they are easier to feed into the auger of the juicer.
