Get Your Mellow Zing On With The “Live-Green” V-8 Smoothie… A Savory Smoothie/Blended Salad

Posted by: Angela Leeds In: *LGS Daily Recipe|*Live Green Smoothie RECIPES|Drinks



The challenge today: to create a V-8-esque Live Green Smoothie from simple, non-exotic ingredients available at any grocery story, and possibly already in someone’s fridge and cupboard.

Another day, I’ll put up a recipe using fresh horseradish root and a bit of Nama Shoyu unpasteurized soy sauce, and maybe some fresh chili. But for now, we’ve got a great base for a Savory Smoothie/Blended Salad anyone can make using fresh tomatoes, celery, red cabbage, and celery as a base.

This smoothie is a wee bit spicy… but not too much. It’s also a bit creamy, with a mellow, mild taste and a nice zingifyingly zesty finish. 

The fresh garlic in the smoothie is an immune system revitalizer, and hey… we all want a bit more of that these days. Perfect for if you’re feeling a little “wan” of late! And you can always take the zest factor up a few notches with the addition of cayenne, fresh chili, horseradish, and a splash of Nama Shoyu, if you have any of that around!

And of course, you could use this as a base for a nice “Bloody Mary” raw cocktail! :D
