View Full Version : blending wheatgrass in cheapo blender
05-20-2009, 12:26 PM
For those of you that have blended wheatgrass in a cheapo blender, then strained it, how much water did you use? Do you have to put in enough water to cover the blades, or no? I tried it this morning, and had to put in about 1/2-3/4c water to cover the blades, then cut the wheatgrass into about 1/2" pieces, and blended. it seemed so watery and yucky, and it's really tough to get out all the pulp from the bottom. But, I did it, and I'll keep at it until I can get a regular wheatgrass juicer or a vitamix. Just looking for tips! Thanks!

I've heard of people just chewing the grass to get the juice and spitting it out because the fiber in it is indigestable to humans. Seems a lot easier than going through all that!

I think you can only juice it because the fiber will burn your blender.
If you really want to do with the blender, i would cut the wheatgrass with cisors very thin, then maybe 3-4 part of water for one part of grass.
Best wishes, hope it works

I haven't tried my blender yet but my small food processor works not too bad. I cut the grass in half inch pieces and cover them with water then whiz, strain then squeeze the rest out. The amount of water I add definitely covers the blades. Not the best way but it works for me.
