One Shot of Wheatgrass Juice
One ounce contains 103 vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
One ounce of wheatgrass juice represents as much nutritional value as approximately 2.5 pounds of fresh green vegetables.
Wheatgrass juice is high in chlorophyll.
It is very high in vitamins A, B-Complex, C, E and K.
Wheatgrass juice is a natural source of laetrile (B-17).
It contains beta-carotene, which is found in red, green and yellow pigmented fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene acts as a scavenger against harmful molecules flowing naturally through the body or through toxins inhaled from cigarette smoke, air pollution and other damaging sources.
Wheatgrass cleanses, purifies and feeds the body by activating the white blood cells, which boost the body’s immune system.
Wheatgrass juice is also beneficial for people who need to lose weight or cleanse their bodies.

ORANGE CREAMSICLE SMOOTHIE
YIELDS: 2 large smoothies
Any type of oranges will work in this recipe, but if you can find minneola oranges (a.k.a. honeybell tangelo), use them! They are so sweet and juicy.
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 1 tsp orange zest (optional)1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup coconut milk (from carton or can)
2 frozen ripe bananas, peeled and cut into thirds
1 tsp pure vanilla extract1 Tbsp agave nectar (if using minneola oranges, you
may not need to add sweetener)
To intensify the orange color, try adding a carrot. For added nutrition, try adding a scoop of protein powder and/or kale/spinach (which will change the color to green, fyi).
Add all ingredients except agave nectar to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste, and adjust sweetener as needed. Enjoy!
To make popsicles, pour mixture into popsicle molds or Dixie cups and place in freezer. Insert popsicle sticks after 1 hour. Continue to freeze overnight for best results. Run warm water over molds to help popsicles release.
