How Do I Make Wheat Grass Juice?

Wheatgrass juice is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. You can make your own wheatgrass juice using wheatgrass you purchase or grow yourself. You need a juicer and water. Fresh wheatgrass juice goes bad quickly, so drink it within 30 minutes of making it.

  1. Obtain wheatgrass

    Buy wheatgrass at a health food store, or grow your own. If you grow your own, harvest it when the sprouts are approximately 8 inches tall by cutting each sprout just above the soil line. Choose the freshest sprouts to make the best-tasting juice. Make sure that there is no mold growing on any of the sprouts before you juice them, and don't use yellow sprouts in your juice, as they have a negative affect on the flavor.

  2. Juice the wheatgrass

    For best results, juice wheatgrass with a juicer. Using a blender or food processor diminishes some of the juice's health benefits. You can also make the juice by hand with a mortar and pestle. Chop and grind the leaves, gradually adding water while grinding to make a paste.

  3. Strain the juice

    Strain the juice through cheesecloth or muslin until the leaves become white. Drink immediately as wheatgrass juice goes bad quickly.
