Want to save money by juicing your own wheatgrass shots?
Wheatgrass shots are great for digestion and overall health. I usually double up on mine when I’ve indulged in less than stellar eating habits!
I make a pit stop daily for double shots chased with a wedge of an orange during my annual New York trip with my aunt and nephew to start the day off right.
I was excited when I found out about a local, family-owned company that delivers trays of wheatgrass to my area. If you don’t have a local company, you can try a Wheatgrass Growing Kit.
I usually buy frozen wheatgrass shots online but they are $15 for (5) oz. portions, so $3.00 a shot!
Isn’t it funny how we cringe at paying for something so nutrient rich that is nothing but good for us, yet slay down nearly $5 for a toxic filled latte?
Anyway, I digress.
When I heard about the trays I decided to give it a try and see if the money I saved was worth the time and effort.
IT WAS! It took 15 minutes and was worth the money saved.
The trays are $12 for a full plus a $3.00 delivery charge or no delivery fee if two or more are purchased. Each shot came out to a little less than $1.00.
If you’re not going to juice your own wheatgrass immediately, I suggest making sure you have space to store your tray in your refrigerator first.
Step 1: Cut the blades to just above the white part and start feeding it into your juicer. I have the Omega Vert Masticating model that juices wheatgrass. My mom helped with this and suggested we add a bit of carrot from time to time when we saw a decrease in the juice coming out. It also helps to use the basket with the tiniest holes.
Step 2: Pour your yummy green goodness into either trays, and place into a freezer bag, or individuals cups and freeze.
Step 3: Freeze until ready to consume. Thaw and drink. You can add orange slices if you like and enjoy!
