Instructions

Step 1: The first thing you need to do is to take the flat of wheatgrass and carefully cut an area of the grass off.

Step 2: Now take the wheatgrass and roll it into a mass. Roll it back and forth between your hands a few times. This softens up the grass and makes juicing it a little bit easier to manage.

Step 3: Place the roll of wheatgrass into the juicer and insert the plunger into the juicer to get all of the wheatgrass into the juicing appliance.

Step 4: Let the juicer go to work. If you endeavor to make approximately an ounce and a half of wheatgrass juice at a time this should be enough to fill your nutritional needs.

Step 5: Once you have finished juicing it then you can enjoy your natural wheatgrass drink!

Please note: For optimum benefit cut the wheatgrass as close to the bottom of the grass blades as you possibly can. Compost the fiber that is left in the juicer after you have made your drink.
