Wheatgrass Juice Recipe with Omega Vert

I made this amazing wheatgrass juice recipe with the Omega Vert Juicer after my friend Novalee brought me over a huge flat of wheatgrass. We were having some fun in the kitchen and made this short video of how to make a wheatgrass cooler. Both of us were surprised how good the juice tasted, because (truth be told) I’m not a fan of straight wheatgrass juice.  If you’re like me, and don’t like to chug wheatgrass straight up, you’ve got to try this winning  recipe!

Wheatgrass Cooler

1 large cucumber or 2 medium cucumbers (Any variety will do but we used Armenian Cucumbers in the video)
1 peeled orange
1 apple
small handful fresh basil leaves
1 inch knob ginger
3 fistfuls of wheatgrass or desired amount

Juice all ingredients through the Omega Vert Juicer or another single auger style juicer. Enjoy!

*Best to drink juice on an empty stomach
