- Remove a juice package from the freezer and leave it on the counter for 1 minute before proceeding.
- Follow the instructions on the back of the label which show you how to break apart the cubes by twisting the package. You can also use this alternative removal technique which is preferred by some when using smaller amounts of juice.
- Cut open the top of the bag with scissors.
- Add the desired number of cubes (0.5 fl. oz each) to a glass.
- Add at least 3 x more water than juice (room temperature, non-chlorinated water preferred)
- Stir to thaw and drink it as it thaws.
- To speed the melt, simply use more water.
Serving Size Suggestions
This is food and there is no limit to how much juice you can use, just suggestions. Trust your instincts and observations as you may find that you prefer more or less.
Note each cube of wheatgrass juice is 0.5 Fl. Oz. Thawing with 3 parts room temperature water will gently and rapidly melt the juice to ensure that even sensitive organics like enzymes remain vital.
The Most Efficient Way To Drink It
There are a few simple principles to getting the most from your wheatgrass juice.
- Use only room temperature water to speed the thaw
- Keep the water temperature below 108F (above this point, enzymes begin to be damaged)
How Much Do We Drink?
We have many family members that use the juice as part of a daily routine:
- The adults typically drink between 2.5 fl. oz. and 5 fl. oz. per day
- The children are presented with 1 fl. oz. per day and the infants with 0.5 fl. oz. per day. Serve yourself last as while we encourage consumption, the children initially drink only about 50% of the juice presented to them. As it becomes routine, they just drink it all!
