There are so many reasons why I encourage you to start adding wheatgrass to your smoothies.

This smoothie is packed with nutrients, health benefits, and more.

Here’s an overview of the benefits of this wheatgrass smoothie:

  • Rich in Nutrients: The smoothie offers many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, supporting overall health and wellness.
  • High in Dietary Fiber: Enhances digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements and supporting a healthy gut microbiome. (Source)
  • Supports Immune Function: Wheatgrass and bananas are rich in vitamins A and C, which are crucial for immune system support. (Source)
  • Promotes Heart Health: Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce heart disease risk factors. (Source)
  • Aids in Hydration: Coconut water is an excellent hydration source, replenishing electrolytes lost through sweat and activity.
  • Supports Muscle and Nerve Function: Magnesium from chia seeds and coconut water contributes to proper muscle and nerve function. (Source)

If you enjoy this smoothie, I recommend that you also try my keto wheatgrass smoothie and my fat burning matcha smoothie recipe!

And I also recommend that you try my kombucha smoothie.

Recipe Variations And Smoothie Notes:

Customizing the recipe is really easy.

You can experiment with your own variations, or try some of my suggested ones below:

  1. No Banana: Swap the banana for mango or pineapple. You can even use berries.
  2. Protein Boost: Use a scoop of protein powder or 1/2 cup of yogurt if you are not avoiding dairy.
  3. No Oats: For an oat-free smoothie, use a tablespoon of nut butter instead.
  4. The Smoothie Base: Swap the coconut water for regular water, or dairy-free milk of choice.
  5. Increase The Sweetness: Add 1/2 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness. 

Recipe Equipment:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

The BlendJet 4000mAh was the only blender that struggled to blend this smoothie.

It is by no means off limits, it just didn’t do as good a job as the other higher-speed blenders I own.

This is why I recommend that you use a higher-speed blender for this recipe.
