Are you bored of your usual green juice? Are your bullet blends coming out a little more unappetising sludge than delicious Insta-worthy drinks? Is your health buzz overpowering your taste buds? while that’s all well and good and you can in fact have both! Swapping your usual smoothie ingredients for those of a delicious but healthy milkshake will turn your healthy drink into a taste sensation. What you need are some store cupboard/freezer ingredients that you can reach to time and time again and combine with some fresh ingredients for a yummy concoction.

Make sure you always have:

Frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)

Frozen exotic fruit (mango and pineapple)

Frozen bananas (if you or your child eats only half a banana throw the other half in a bag or lunchbox in the freezer)

Almond or oat milk

Maple syrup

Peanut butter (all natural, no sugar or palm oil)

One Nutrition Wheatgrass Juice powder

Once you’ve got that list in stock you can make a whole heap of delicious milkshakes that are tasty and delicious.

Hold on though, there’s one ingredient there that you don’t recognise. Right? Wheatgrass Juice Powder is naturally alkaline and are rich in Vitamin B12, Iron, Calcium, Chlorophyll and Magnesium. It’s vegan, gluten free, soy free, dairy free and is certified organic. The organic powder by One Nutrition is made using pure field-grown wheatgrass leaves that are juiced first, then powdered. This means 50kg of young wheat shoots are used to create just 1kg of juice powder, resulting in a very concentrated product. The presence of Vitamin B12 and Iron makes this an ideal product for vegetarians and the elderly as these groups are often deficient.

The powder is the perfect ingredient to add to smoothies, juices and soups but if you don’t have time for a smoothie One Nutrition also make the Organic Wheatgrass Juice Powder in capsule form for any on the go!
