Use a high-powered blender to crush wheatgrass fiber. Add water so that while blending, the juice from the damaged fiber cells goes into the water. Then squeeze the blend into the glass using a fine-mesh strainer or a clean cotton towel.

Blender, a cup of water, and wheatgrass cut off in a steel bowl.
Just need a blender and fine-mess strainer with the bowl.

So, prepare and cut off your wheatgrass. I explained how to cut off wheatgrass correctly and whether it is necessary to wash grass in the article Step 5 Harvesting Wheatgrass.

Blender and blender glass full of chopped wheatgrass shoots.
Do not cut wheatgrass too finely.

Chop it up and put it in a blender glass. Don't cut in too small pieces; just halve it. So, if your blender is powerful enough, it will break up the wheatgrass as it should. And if not, it doesn't matter how you chopped the wheatgrass; the blender just won't do its job.

Note: For example, my Cosori blender has a powerful 1500W motor, and the rotation speed of its blades reaches 30,000 rpm. But there are more powerful blenders on the market now. Just google it.

Add clean drinking water. For such a portion of wheatgrass, I add 1.5-2 cups of water. And this is not a lot so as not to feel the wheatgrass at all. And not a little so that the mix is liquid enough to be easily poured.

It's time to turn on the blender.

Fine-mesh strainer into the bowl and the blender glass blended wheatgrass and water.
Do not blend mix more than half or one minute.

Please do not use your blender for more than one minute, especially if it is as powerful as mine. The high-powered blender can heat the liquid by reaching up to a speed of 30,000 rpm. Of course, it will not boil your blend and kill all(!) vitamins and enzymes, but the juice does not need extra heating either.

Fine-mesh strainer, spatula with the pulp, and squeezed wheatgrass juice in the bowl.
Use a spatula to squeeze juice from the blend.

Pour the blend into a fine-mesh strainer. And using a spatula, crumble the pulp until it becomes almost dry. Yes, a bit long process.

You can also use a clean natural cotton towel; the way is to put the towel on top of the bowl and then pour the blend into it. Then wring out with your hands. This way is much faster, but it is difficult to wash the towel from the grass; or every time, using a new towel is not cheap.

There are also unique small cotton bags instead of towels for these purposes, for example, these ones: nut milk bags.

About 1.5 cup of wheatgrass juice mixed with water in the measuring cup close to the strainer in the white plate.
The mix of wheatgrass juice and water.

Well, my juice is ready, or better to say, the mix of wheatgrass juice and water. Please consume it as soon as possible. Wheatgrass juice is additionally oxidized in a blender during spinning and mixing with water. The amount of enzymes decreases every minute. Unlike wheatgrass juicer, where the grass is smashing, there is no spinning and no intense oxidation in the air.

But that's not the only thing I don't like about making wheatgrass juice with a blender. Not everyone can drink easy a wheatgrass juice shot due to the high concentration of chlorophyll.

If a juicer only squeezes out one shot of wheatgrass, but here are 1.5 cup of wheatgrass with water. It is a big challenge for me to drink so much juice, even if it is not concentrated.

The full measuring cup with the green liquid is a mix of wheatgrass juice and water.
Are you ready to drink?

To make it easier for yourself to consume juice in this case:

  • you can add a little lemon juice, the taste will be much better;
  • you can make a smoothie with berries; it will be tasty and healthy;
  • or you can just add it to a green cocktail; additional chlorophyll will be helpful;

What can I do with wheatgrass pulp?

By the way, you probably thought when reading the article how fine the blender breaks down wheatgrass fiber. Do you want me to show how the wheatgrass pulp looks like in this way?

I specially washed pulp from the rest of the wheatgrass juice and dried it a little. Would you please pay attention to how the parts of the wheatgrass pulp are small?

Look how fine the blender breaks down wheatgrass fiber.

What can you do with the pulp now? Do you think you can put it in your salad?

Generally speaking, you will not be able to digest it. But we need fiber - a lot! Firstly, it cleans the small intestine and the colon like a sponge. Secondly, it is food for symbiotic bacteria which play a vital role in human digestion. That is why a human has to consume a lot of greens, unsweetened fruits, and vegetables.

But how you will use this(!) wheatgrass pulp, I have no idea.

There are also some ideas for using this pulp for cosmetic purposes. Again, google it if you feel like it. But in my opinion, it is better to use pulp from a wheatgrass juicer than one from a blender.

But I'm sure that the best way to use wheatgrass pulp is by reusing it in a composter to make perfect soil for planting wheatgrass seeds.

So now you know how to use your blender to squeeze out wheatgrass correctly. For me, this way squeezing wheatgrass juice:

  • too stretched over time;
  • too complicated, due to washing more things;
  • and too challenging to consume large amounts of juice;

Personally, it's much easier for me:

  • to spin a juicer handle for a minute;
  • to drink a shot of pure wheatgrass;
  • and then to rinse only four pieces of steel - parts of a juicer.

So let me give you a piece of advice, don't over complicate this process! Get a cold-pressed wheatgrass juicer as I did, and you won't regret it!

Remember that I always say: The more complicated process, the more reasons you will find not to do this!

Good luck!
