Wheatgrass Whirl of Wonder Smoothie
Wheatgrass is an ingredient often used in natural fruit juices but less commonly used in smoothies. Buck the trend and be unique in this regard! This wheatgrass smoothie recipe is worth giving a whirl.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 medium orange, peeled and halved
- 1 medium apple, quartered
- 4 strawberries, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 cup of wheatgrass
- 1-3 ice cubes
Start with a small portion of wheatgrass as this is new territory for you. Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend for a minute to a minute and a half.
Wonderful and Wacky Wheat Germ Smoothie
Wheat germ is good for you but often is sprinkled on yogurt or oatmeal but is not an ingredient included in a low fat smoothie. Break with tradition and give a wheat germ smoothie a try. You may fall in love with it instantly!

- 1 cup vanilla low-fat or non-fat yogurt
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Cut the banana into chunks first (if you decide to use a banana instead of peaches). Place all ingredients into the blender adding the cracked ice last. Blend until the smoothie is smooth in its consistency. You may wish to sprinkle a dash of cinnamon or a little more wheat germ on top of the drink to enjoy it to its fullest.
