CAN WHOLE WHEATGRASS BE USED IN SHAKES OR DO WE HAVE TO USE THE POWDERED VERSION?

Just saw the maker of the Nutribullet Mr. Wolf add wheat grass to his drink. He says the bullet blends the grass perfectly. He cut the grass right off a pot he was growing. Now I wanna grow wheatgrass.
Yes - You can use the grass as is! It is a great ingredient to add to any recipe!
I JUST DID IT, NOT GOOD, THE FIBERS FROM THE GRASS ARE TOO MUCH TO SWALLOW, IT EVEN CLOGGED MY DRAIN STOPPER WHEN I DUMPED IT OUT. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

How long did you blend it for? Did you put enough liquid in it?
If you are trying to avoid gluten, can you use fresh wheatgrass in a blast.

It has been known that the pure grass, not the seeds, of wheatgrass and barley grass are gluten free. And some insist that as long as the plant has not started to go to seed, the grass will be gluten free. If you’re growing your own, you're probably safe (if using just the grass, not the seed). But with a processed product containing wheat grass juice or powder, there’d be no way of knowing. Products which have been tested and certified as gluten-free should be safe. So unless you are certain, I'd be safe rather than sorry.
I tried cut wheatgrass from a container in a drink I just made and it pulverized it completely.

You can use whole wheat grass.
Put it through a strainer!!! I grow my own wheat grass on kitchen windowsill Even though the fiber is fine, I do not like the texture & strain it. To temper the strong taste, I use a green sun tea & add several mint leaves. Much more to my liking. I do cut it up w/ scissors.
Best grown in dirt. I have used a sprouter, sometimes it will get sour, especially in hot weather. Can be rinsed w/ ascorbic acid in water. 1 t./ 1 cup.
