The Wheatgrass Connection
If you’ve been following along with me all these years, you know that I love 100% Raw Cacao Banana Smoothies! I have them everyday for breakfast, and mixed with superfood powders, it’s just a great way to jumpstart your day.
I’ve been experimenting on my performance levels and how I feel with wheatgrass. The juice is popular at juice bars, but a little research tells me that the wheatgrass powder is highly concentrated in nutrients and protein. For more info on that, read my other post about wheatgrass powder.
Making a wheat grass smoothie or raw cacao wheatgrass smoothie would also be a good alternative to a green smoothie.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 large banana
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 1 heaping tablespoon cacao powder
- 1 heaping teaspoon wheatgrass powder
- 14 ice cubes
You can add optional items like superfoods to enhance your smoothie and make it even more super-packed full of nutrients!
- Marine Phytoplankton
- Himalayan Goji Berries
- Hemp Protein Powder
- Add a few blueberries
- Add a fresh strawberry or two
- MSM powder
- Simply put all the above ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth… and that’s it!
- Pour your wonderful smoothie into a Starbucks-type container with straw (like in the photo above), and you’re good to go!
Variations On A Theme
Yet another alternative, as I soon discovered by browsing at the Amazing Grass site is that they have a ready-made powder called Amazing Meal – Chocolate Infusion.
This stuff contains a LOT of healthy ingredients including: maca powder, Acai and Goji Berries, Wheat Grass, Alfalfa, Kale, Barley Grass, Carrots.
Somehow all essential amino acids are present here (about 10 grams per serving size). 6 Grams of fiber, some digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Also included are rose hips, blueberries and banana.
Anyway, the Chocolate Infusion would be a good alternative. You could mix it with a nut milk, purified water or into your smoothie for a quick drink.
