Hard to believe that it looks like this after only 5 days!
And remember the basket that looked like this 5 days ago?
Well....it grew 3 more inches too and started to flop over....
Time to MOW!
Seriously....me mowing the grass!
Mr. S....don't get any ideas!!!
I only MOW with scissors!!!
So I cut off about 4 inches of wheat grass...mmm....the smell was like a summer day!
Now what to do with the grass clippings?
Remember the VitaMix?
I decided to try making a Green Smoothie!
In typical Sweetwater Style, I didn't use a recipe....I just did it!
Grass in the VitaMix with some orange juice, some green grapes and a little honey.
That blender has some serious power....I can not imagine that a regular blender would be able to pulverize the grass.
This stuff actually tasted pretty good!
And as GREEN as it is-- it has to be good for you!
Don't worry....I haven't gone all health food crazy....but I figure drinking a little of this can counteract some of the LESS than healthy things I drink :)
Have a very Green Weekend! It is gonna be 75 degrees in Minnesota....YIPPEE!
