    I have been reading about frozen juiced wheatgrass shots for healthy living and I have read some very good reviews. I was wondering if anyone drinks the frozen juiced wheatgrass shots and have you felt a difference in your overall health? Would you recommend it to others? I have priced the frozen shots in my area and it's $13.99 for 8 frozen shots. Is that expensive?

    don't know about frozen, and I have the idea that "fresh" is part of the point with wheatgrass juice, although I can't say why exactly. I know if you go to the juice bars in SoCal where I was, it was about $2.50 for a 1 oz shot, and $3-4 for a double.

    I do think it's a nice pick-me-up but I've not done it daily. you can get a small wheatgrass juicer for $40 or 50, shop around. it costs almost nothing to sprout the grass yourself.

    I was going to suggest sproute your own too.A tray of wheat grows fast.A wheat juicer might be more expensive if you go that route. I found the sprouted wheat berries to be sweet,but the longer the grass grows the more *grassy* it tastes.Gotta mask that with some carrot and apple. I suppose some like the taste of it.

    At $14 for 8 shots I would be selling some on the side myself! That is some GOOD money for grinding up some grass.

    I have tried drinking wheat grass in the past, but I really couldn't stand the taste and the repeating of the taste for awhile afterwards. People who do use it swear by the benefits of it. It is very pricey.

    You could look at some of the information at Sprout People on growing and juicing your own, if you think you might want to do that. They have a lot of good, basic information on how to do it. They sell seed and supplies. They also sell juicers for grass in all different price ranges and one that you can use to do other, tastier juices to blend with it.

    The taste will grow on you. Some people have reactions to it though,so don't drink to much right away.

    I've never tried the shots, but I bought a 50 pound bag of seed from the Co-op for about $14 and planted it everywhere I had good soil. Wow- its like astroturf. I have eaten some- tastes just like lettuce. My birds love it, and even though its winter it grows back a bit every time we get a couple warm days. So- it doesn't have to be expensive- make your own!

    at first I didn't think I liked it... its just so... GREEN!
    but actually it tases alot like the smell of my horses grazing fresh pasture in the spring, and that's a smell I really like.
    following a shot with a wedge of an orange seems to help clear the aftertaste.
