Give me some green!

A new joy of mine is green smoothies. They are so satisfying and refreshing…perfect for spring and summer days! I like to drink them in the morning for a energy boost, but they are great as pre or post workout snacks. The drink pictured above, my usual, contains:

1 TBSP of Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass powder
1 Banana (sometimes I put bananas in the freezer to make the drink thicker)
1 C Almond Milk
Dash of natural sweetener (optional)
4-5 Ice Cubes

Step 1: put all ingredients minus the ice cubes into a blender and blend away……..I would recommend putting the wheat grass in the blender first to avoid it shooting up all over the sides and top
Step 2: add the ice cubes, blend until smooth, ENJOY!

If you have trouble getting in your daily servings of vegetables or you just want an extra boost, I would recommend using wheat grass.

Benefits of Wheat Grass Include:
– Lowers blood pressure
– Cleanses blood, organs, and intestinal tract
– Stimulates the thyroid gland
– Neutralizes toxins
– Improves digestion
– Clears skin
– Increases energy
– Significant source of Vitamin C and Iron

  1. I love wheat grass but where do you find that powder you speak of? Natural food store? Hopefully not strictly online…

  2. I like to put spinach in my green smoothies, too, and sometimes cucumber.
    Thanks for the recipe!
