Green Java Green Smoothie

Looking for a morning coffee alternative? Something that will still wake you up and give you a boost of energy?

This is perfect. Wheatgrass is pure pick-me-up; pure energy, and with all the vitamin C from the oranges, its everything you need to get up and going.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch wheatgrass
  • 2 oranges (peeled)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

The amount of grass I used is a 3×3 sprout box. If you have a masticating juicer you can juice 2-4oz. and throw it into the blender. Otherwise you can do what I did and use the whole grass.

Enjoy your perfect coffee alternative.

Fresh is always better but if you have no other choice, the powder will work. Whatever brand you have should provide serving sizes.

Local smoothie/juice bars/stores usually have some as well as Farmer’s Markets. You can also buy some seeds and grow your own from places like http://sproutpeople.org/
