Veggie Blast Fresh Pressed Juice
Move over, V8. This blend of fresh garden vegetables is unexpectedly tangy and has an extra-special boost of flavor from the addition of fresh garlic, cilantro, and sea salt.
NotesJuice may be pressed, refrigerated in glass, and enjoyed within 24 hours, but for maximum nutrient potency, sip immediately. For a refreshing and nutrient-rich virgin Bloody Mary, salt the rim of your glass and add a garnish of one celery stalk, a wedge of lemon, and two green olives. You can spice the cocktail by passing a jalapeno or red chile pepper through the juicer and then stirring in fresh grated horseradish and black pepper.
Did you Know?
The reason this veggie juice is not opaque red and does not have the same thick texture of V8 is because the store-bought variation is made from a concentrate of tomato paste and water. The Veggie Blast Fresh Pressed Juice may not look as appetizing as V8, but it’s fresh and superior in taste.
