Wheatgrass is an excellent microgreen that makes it extremely nutritious for your health. Although high in nutrients and antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E, iron, magnesium, calcium and amino acids; on its own the telltale bitterness and earthy flavour understandably puts off many people. In this recipe we have created a delicious blend that is absolutely drinkable, with wheatgrass still the hero but with many sidekicks to support it :)
This recipe is vegetarian and gluten free.
