How To Make Wheatgrass Powder

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!

Hello Asenath!

Thank you so much for your comment! Placing in the sun could take a longer time to dry out as well as other elements like wind and dust could cause some issues! If you find a way that works for you outdoors, please let us know! We would love to hear about your experience! :)

Hi everyone. Wheatgrass is great for health. It contains many nutrients but the most beneficial component is vitamin c. This vitamin is heat sensitive. Both heat in oven and in grinder kills vitamin c. So the best way to consume wheatgrass is harvest, wash, put into vitamix along with some ice and water. Blend. Drain green water and it is ready for drink in itโ€™s most beneficial form.
