Spicy Tomato Juice Recipe

Similar to the classic eight-vegetable juice blend, this spicy tomato juice drink provides an easy way to drink your vegetables.  It’s made with fresh ingredients and you can tweak the flavor and spice anyway you like.

In addition to being fresh and all natural, this homemade  juice blend is full of things your body needs like vitamin C, pro-vitamin A, D, E and K, along with a variety of alkaline minerals like organic sodium, calcium, magnesium, silicon, sulfur and other trace elements.  Plus, important digestive enzymes and protective compounds like lutein and lycopene.

While this recipe will not taste like store-bought vegetable juices blends, the fresh, uncooked vegetables in this drink are all alkalizing, which can help restore and support your body’s PH balance.  You won’t get that from canned juices which are heavily processed and full of preservatives.
