Have you ever tried downing a shot of wheatgrass? I don’t think there’s a person on earth who would say it’s delicious. So then, why do so many people drink it? Trendy juice bars and fads aside – it’s actually an incredible way to detoxify your body. Wheatgrass is rich in chlorophyll, which draws toxins from the body like a magnet. When your body is cleansed in this way, everything flows smoothly, oxygen is easily transported throughout and you feel the benefits: increased energy, bright eyes and clear skin. And the best part, I’m going to show you how to easily make a wheatgrass shot that you’ll actually look forward to drinking!
This is my Omega 8000 Juicer. It makes life easy. If you don’t have one, you can blend up the wheatgrass with a little water and then strain out its dark green juice with a nut bag. This is how I did it for a good year before I bought this juicer. Once you have the wheatgrass shot ready, then you add the magic ingredient: coconut water.
Not only does the coconut water give it a refreshing, almost sweet-nutty flavour – but it’s also incredibly hydrating to the body. It’s rich in potassium, which is an electrolyte that floods muscles and tissue cells – giving you a charge of energy! It’s an amazing post-workout drink to replenish tired muscles, but it’s also a fantastic way to start the day. Try it!
And there you have it – a wheatgrass shot that actually tastes good! Enjoy!
