What to do with all my wheat grass?

Morning everyone and happy Friday! This weekend is looking to be quite layed back for me. Yoga tonight, kettle bell training tomorrow and yoga followed by brunch on Sunday. Can’t complain.

Yesterday evening I was cutting all my wheat grass and juicing it because the grass was on its last days. This was after a delicious dinner (corn chowder.. see recipe below). As I was juicing I thought to myself ” I want some dessert”. Having recently become addicted to Banana soft serve, I decide to make some. Then the light bulb came on, ” WHEAT GRASS BANANA SOFT SERVE!” Sounds really random and not so tasty but it was DELICIOUS! And probably the most nutrient dense dessert you will ever come across! BONUS.

Keep an open mind and try this recipe out, you will be in love with this dessert.
