Veggie Juice.... Mmmm, mmm good...
Thursday, January 13, 2011
So this morning, I decided to throw whatever came to my mind into the Vitamix and see how it would turn out. I was looking for a veggie mix that would energize me, and so here's what I threw together:
1 teaspoon tabasco sauce
1/2 can of Rotel chunked tomatoes and jalapenos
1/3 of a lime's juice
1/2 yellow pepper
4 large leaves romaine lettuce
8 thin asparagus spears
1/2 cup onion
3 garlic cloves
1.5 cups filtered water
.25 cup ice
Now, I know that some of you may be thinking... YUK! But let me tell you, this combination has such a spicy kick to it! And let's not forget the tiny, silent thrill I have knowing that I've satisfied four of my freggie servings just with this juice blend alone.
And for the best part yet, only 128 calories and it gave me a bit of a pick-me-up, too!
Anyhow, I was wondering if any of you have any delicious combinations that you enjoy. I'm eager to get some new thoughts and ideas for healthful blending.
Have a great day, Sparkies, and happy healthy eating!
