Given our great LOVE affair with WHEATGRASS, we’re wrapping up this 30 Days of Juice! feature with a delicious beverage we know our kindred spirits will enjoy…
The Wheatgrass Juice Martini!
Makes two glasses
- 6 Ounces Apple Juice
- 2 Ounces Lemon Juice
- ½ Ounce Ginger Juice
- 2 Ounces Wheatgrass Juice
- Sparkling Mineral Water
- You will juice your fruit separately using about 4 apples, 1 lemon, 3 inches of ginger and two cups of wheatgrass. If you do not have a juicer that’s appropriate for wheatgrass, you can blend it with a few ounces of purified water in a high-speed blender and strain the blended mixture through a seed and nut bag to remove the pulp.
- Mix juices together and add sparkling mineral water to taste.
- Pour into martini glasses and enjoy!
Health Tip: The best thing about wheatgrass juice is that it contains 70% chlorophyll – the pure sunlight energy plant enzyme, which helps oxygenate the body and is also proven to decrease activity of cancer-causing agents – there is a strong link between wheatgrass and cancer prevention. In fact, it’s so nutritious that an ounce of it is equal to 2 ½ pounds of vegetables.
