Refreshing, Mild Tomato-Cabbage Live Green Smoothie (Don’t stick your nose up at it until you give it a try!)
This very mild-tasting Live Green Smoothie (you would never know it has cabbage in it unless I told you…) has less fruit, more vedge & greens, but none of the ingredients I would normally include in a “Savory Smoothie” or “Blended Salad”, such as a bit of garlic, onion, apple cider vinegar and maybe some chile.
Instead, it has the light refreshing quality of a greens-and-fruit smoothie, but with cabbage, tomato, cilantro, and a few other mild goodies.
Because of a healthy mix of rich red and deep green ingredients, the outcome is a dark Coca-Cola brown…not to be frightened by because it’s simply the laws of the light spectrum doin’ their thing!
Because of the high-nutrient/low-sugar quotient of this smoothie, you will feel GREAT after drinking it! Superb for post workouts and an accompaniment to lunch or dinner!
