We're pleased to offer a new variety of plant pad - wheatgrass! Popular for its juice taken in shots or smoothies, wheatgrass is an extremely quick grower. The time from putting in a wheatgrass plant pad to harvest is about 7 days.
One tray made a few wheatgrass shots when juiced, and we put them into a tasty smoothie. Here's the mix (yields three one-pint servings)
- 3 wheatgrass shots
- 1 1/2 bananas, frozen
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup spinach, frozen
- 3/4 cup kale, frozen
- unsweetened soy milk - add to desired thickness
Turned out great! With all those greens in there you'd expect it to taste bitter, but thanks to the sweetness of fresh-harvested wheatgrass, this smoothie is perfectly balanced.
