Plan B. I found some fresh cut wheatgrass at the grocery store. So despite all the warnings that vitamix couldn't handle the wheatgrass....I decided to try it anyway.
I don't have a wheatgrass juicer. So I found a blender method online and decided to try it.
I used wheatgrass, ice cold water, and some frozen wheatgrass from the first batch I made. (You can use a regular ice cube on the first try.)
The first batch went right into the vitamix and she whipped that wheatgrass right up with no problem. Bam! Bam!
1 cup ice cold filtered water
1/4 cup grass (This was an estimate. Who can measure grass in a cup? I mean really.....?)
Blend on high for one minute. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a measuring cup.
I poured two shots. Then poured the rest in a container to freeze. The frozen wheatgrass ice will work well for the next batch. This is a mild batch that will help you get used to the flavor of the grass.
Spoiler alert: It tastes like grass.
The next batch I used: (this is a stronger batch)
1 cup of wheatgrass
1 cup of water
2 ounces of frozen wheatgrass juice.
Blend on high for one minute. Same as above. Strain. Pour. Enjoy!
Do NOT TRY THIS IN A NORMAL HUMAN BLENDER. Vitamix is a space gadget that can handle the fibers. Your regular blender will die if you try this. You have been warned.
I can't say Bon Apetit. Cus wheatgrass is yucky. But so good for you! So DRINK UP!
