I have always loved V8 (the original blend) but having been put on a low sodium diet I can’t have it anymore (low sodium blend tastes bland) so I have invented my own.
2 cups water
3 medium tomatoes
1 celery stalk
1/2 c spinach
1 small carrot (peeled)
1/4 c. diced beets
1/4 c. parsley
1/8 c. minced or diced sweet onion
1/4 garlic clove
salt to taste
Wash all your veggies well.
Put water, garlic, onion, celery, and carrot into blender or food processor and spin until smooth.
Add tomatoes, spinach, beets, and parsley and spin again until smooth.
salt to taste
2 tomatoes (chopped then frozen)
1 small cup of tomato juice
juice of 1/2 lemon
3 basil leaves
Take the frozen chopped tomatoes and place in blender.
Pour in the tomato juice, lemon juice and basil leaves.
Mix until smooth, serve and enjoy!
1/2 a small cucumber
1/2 small cup of tomato juice
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
2 drops of Tabasco sauce
4 ice cubes
Roughly chop the cucumber then add it to your blender with the remaining ingredients.
Blend until all ice is crushed.
Not only great tasting, but exceptionally high in antioxidants!

1/2 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup (chopped) celery

Tabasco or hot sauce to taste
2 cups ice
Toss carrots, celery, and tomato juice into blender and whip on high until smooth.
Add tomatoes, and spin again until well mixed.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
(as an aside, for those hangover mornings, add a shot of vodka for a refreshing twist on the classic bloody mary)
