ORANGE WHEATGRASS SMOOTHIE RECIPE
High in vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, and manganese, this orange wheatgrass smoothie recipe is a creamy, sweet, and refreshing introduction to wheatgrass!
You will love the way it feels when wheatgrass is coursing through your veins!
Get the benefits of wheatgrass with the sweetness of bananas and oranges, which knock out the strong “green” flavor.
We used almond/coconut milk as our milk substitute for this low-fat, tropical-tasting smoothie.
Though it doesn’t have any pineapple, the flavor is reminiscent of a pina colada when made with coconut milk.
Warning: you will crave this wheatgrass smoothie for days!
If you find that’s the case, be sure to freeze part of this large serving for later in the week.
We always get asked if a Vitamix or Blendtec can blend wheatgrass.
The answer is YES!
They will easily pulverize and break down the cell walls of fresh wheatgrass in your green smoothies without a problem!
However if you don’t have a high power blender, not to worry!
Use these tips if making this wheatgrass smoothie recipe in a “regular” blender OR try using wheatgrass powder.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHEATGRASS
Where should we begin? Wheatgrass is intensely good for you in so many ways since it has antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder.
The nutrients in wheatgrass may also help the body remove stored toxins. For example, the chlorophyll aids in detoxing the body and helps support healthy liver function.
So what more reason do you need to try this wheatgrass smoothie recipe? Our recipe testers loved it! 🙂

Loved how the tangerines and banana truly mask the wheatgrass taste. Unfortunately, I couldn’t share with my daughter since there are warnings on pregnant women eating wheatgrass, which was the whole reason why I made it in the first place. Still!, her partner and I really enjoyed!
So glad you loved it Monique! And congratulations on being a healthy and awesome grandmother! 🙂 Happy Blending ~Tarashaun
Mmm! Tasted like a pro made it! I thought the orange would be overpowering, but you get a hint of orange which I loved.
Thanks Jay! So glad you enjoyed it and thanks for sharing your feedback! 🙂 Happy Blending! ~ Tarashaun
Started growing my own wheat grass recently and came across this recipe a few days ago. Love love love it! I have a Blendtec and it works wonderfully and breaking down the wheat grass. I’m not a fan of bananas so I played with substituting frozen mango chunks for the banana and it came out really good.
Love it Eileen! Thank you so much for sharing! Yes I always recommend subbing mango for those that don’t like bananas. I also have a post of smoothie recipes without bananas if that helps. 🙂 Happy Blending! ~Tarashaun
Going home to make my 1st wheatgrass smoothie.
Awesome! Let me know what you think!
when you say orange… do you meal peel and seeds and all? thanks
Hey Sheila! No for all recipes you would remove the peel but you can blend up the seeds. Also, when you remove the peel, try to leave as much of the white pyth as possible, that’s where a ton of the nutrition is. HAPPY BLENDING! ~Tarashaun
I just made this, and it was delicious! Of course I made a little change because of what I had on hand. Even still it was soooo good! The combo of citrus and “milk” really bring together the sweet and creamy taste that wheatgrass really wants to be. Sorry no pics as I am terrible at taking photos. Sadly enough, food porn just isnt a talent of mine.
Haha no worries!! So glad you made it and enjoyed it! What tweaks did you make?
I used 2 sweet limes (first time using them and wow!) , 1kiwi, 1 medjool date and hemp milk (also made w blendtec). I tried some of the sweet lime to make sure it would work. They were so yummy, I ate a quite a bit. So I added the kiwi to fill in the rest.
I can’t really say that I like wheatgrass, but as long as the flavor is improved upon (or sweetened with other flavors like orange), then I’m happy to at least try it.
It’s definitely an easier way to drink wheatgrass if you’re not a huge fan Kate! 🙂 Let us know if you try it! HAPPY BLENDING!
I like it very much just because of it’s health benefits and not because of it’s taste. I don’t know any recipe that can be made with this that makes it taste better. All that I know is make dry wheat grass into powder a, mix it with little water and drink early in the morning. It is said this cleanses the system.
I’ve never tried wheatgrass. Sounds interesting.
Love the taste of wheatgrass juice and I love how clean it makes me feel.
I don’t like the taste of wheatgrass, but the health benefits are worth it.
We’ve only met a few people who LOVE the taste of wheatgrass! You’re not alone Crystal! 😉
My roommate used to have a whole setup for Wheatgrass juicing. It was so great. I miss it.
What a great roommate Jodi! We would miss that too! 🙂
