Wheatgrass Smoothie Recipe: "Grasshopper"

Glass full with layered wheatgrass and raspberry smoothie

As the name suggests, wheatgrass plays the key role in the wheatgrass smoothie. Easily home-grown from sprouted grains (e.g. from the health food store), the 10-15 cm long stalks can be harvested for the first time after one week. Indoors, wheatgrass can be grown all year round - outdoors only until the first frost. Hildegard von Bingen or raw food pioneer Dr. Ann Wigmore, have recognized the potential of wheatgrass long time ago. Most people know wheatgrass juice, but its stalks can also be used for smoothies. With a chlorophyll content of 70 %, it by far surpasses many vegetable colleagues in terms of nutrient density.

Wheatgrass contains:

  • "60 times more vitamin C than oranges
  • 50 times more vitamin E than spinach
  • 30 times more vitamin B1 than cow milk
  • 11 times more calcium than raw milk
  • 5 times more iron than spinach
  • 5 times more magnesium than bananas" *

Instruction

  1. To get two different colored smoothies, you need to prepare two separate blends:
  2. For the green blend, wash wheatgrass, spinach and apple.
  3. Cut avocado in half, remove core and spoon the flesh directly into container. Peel mango and add one half to the container. Add apples, wheatgrass, spinach, lemon juice and a little water.
  4. Do not add too much water otherwise you won't be able to layer the blends.
  5. Blend on maximum speed until you have a uniform green smoothie color and consistency. Pour green smoothie mixture into a bottle. Rinse container briefly.
  6. For the pink mixture: place raspberries and peeled bananas in the container, add a dash of water, and blend on maximum speed for about 1 minute.
  7. Now layer the smoothie in 300 ml glasses. Pour the pink raspberry banana smoothie first, then the wheatgrass smoothie and so on.
  8. You can repeat this as many times as you like!

Green smoothies have been my replacement for morning cerals since 2009. They are inspiring, delicious and speak for themselves. They fit into our lives with five kids and lots of joy in creative healthy cooking. I really love to prepare or create new smoothies. Inspired by the Green Smoothie, I combine two of my passions with my job: taking pictures and working with food.
