Carrot Wheat Grass Smoothie

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today I have a quick post of a Smoothie that I tried last week and just haven't gotten around to posting yet!  As you can see the color is pretty intense! 

Altho this wasn't my BEST attempt at a smoothie - I still wanted to post it because it has a lot of potential.  For me, since it was a smoothie and done in a blender I didn't really like all the pulp.  To be fair...I could have strained it...I just didn't think of that at the time, I guess.  The flavor itself wasn't bad tho! 

Another reason why I think this has potential is because I could have juiced it in my juicer and I'm sure the texture would have been much more up my alley!

All I did for this was...

4 Carrots
1 Scoop of Garden of Life's Perfect Food Wheat Grass Juice

An optional Add-In is some REAL Ginger or Ginger Powder, too!

What makes this Wheat Grass Product so special from Garden of Life?  Well, this was my favorite part...1 serving of their Wheat Grass equals 13 Wheat Grass Shots!  Isn't that CRAZY AWESOME!?  Another thing I appreciated was the flavor.  It's potent but pleasant!  If you have ever had Wheat Grass most of the time it can be a bit hard to handle especially your first time around or if your not expecting its powerful PUNCH!  This was a great alternative from sprouting and juicing your own Wheat Grass!

  1. Looks good and what a simple combo. I really don't mind the pulp, I adore thick smoothies especially blended with banana and lots of kale.

  2. I guess my question is how do they know it's more potent? What tests are used to determine that? Also how long does it retain that potency? Nutrients, within produce, starts to diminish after it's been harvested.
