How To Make Wheatgrass Powder

Looking for a more convenient way to eat your wheatgrass than by juicing? Not everyone has a juicer. And for those who do have a juicer, it's often hard to find the time to go through the juicing and cleaning process on a busy morning. Look no further because wheatgrass powder is a much more convenient alternative than wheatgrass juice, and it's so easy to make. Read the full wheatgrass powder how-to below.

What You'll Need:
- HAMAMA Grow Kit
- Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt
- Scissors or bread knife
- Baking sheet
- Coffee grinder

Step One: Harvest

You've been growing your Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt in your HAMAMA Grow Kit for 10 days, and now...it's time to harvest! Use scissors or a bread knife to harvest your wheatgrass about 1/2" above the Seed Quilt.

Your Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt will look something like this at the 10-day mark, when it's ready to harvest!

Step Two: Bake In The Oven

Next you'll place your harvest on a baking sheet. The baking sheet and wheatgrass will go into the oven to bake at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. After two hours, the wheatgrass leaves will be dry and brittle.

Step Three: The Grind

Place the dried wheatgrass into a coffee grinder, pulse, and Voila ! You have wheatgrass powder ready to go. Store it in your pantry in an airtight jar or Ziploc bag. Each Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt will yield approximately 4 tablespoons of wheatgrass powder. Use half a tablespoon of your wheatgrass powder in your smoothies or mix into water to reconstitute as wheatgrass juice! Try sneaking your wheatgrass powder into other concoctions like soup, salad dressing, yogurt, and more. Enjoy!

Hey Karina!! I suspect that it would change some factors! Most of what I’ve read indicates that drying actually increases the nutritional density because there is less water! :)
