Fresh V8 Juice

If you have ever glanced at the nutrition label of V8 juice, I hope the sodium content jumped out! Long ago I thought V8 juice was great and even patted myself on the back for drinking so many vegetables... DUMB (I can blame it on age, 18 = naive). Well, I still like the taste of fresh vegetables plus a little spice. So, I went on a V8 recipe search and here are my two favorites so far.


Recipe One

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1-2 shots hot sauce

Recipe Two

  • 3 tomatoes
  • 6 carrots
  • 3 stalks celery
  • handful of spinach leaves
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 small beet
  • 1/4 head cabbage
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/4 to 1/2 garlic (very strong)
      If you want it to taste more like store bought V8, replace    
      the fresh tomatoes with canned tomato sauce.
