Tomato Juice

Fresh Tomato Juice

This blender tomato juice is spring in a glass. Filled with antioxidants from fresh tomatoes and a sweet peppery spice thanks to strawberries and red peppers, you’ll never look at tomato juice the same.

The Blender Girl developed this recipe for us as a refreshing, low-sodium and healthy comparison to overly sweet, heavily processed store-bought tomato juices. You might be thinking ‘tomatoes and strawberries?’ First, remember tomatoes are actually a fruit, and secondly, think about a gorgeous summer salad with lots of veggies and fruits. The flavors actually balance each other in a way that’s surprising and delicious!

Blender juices for health

There are so many reasons to put this tomato juice on your Spring beverage list. Starting with the heaviest hitters, tomato consumption — particularly because of the antioxidant lycopene it contains — has been shown in studies to reduce incidences of cancer, most notably prostate, lung and stomach cancers.

From there, tomatoes help maintain healthy blood pressure, and reduce blood glucose in people with diabetes thanks to their healthy doses of vitamin B and potassium. They also contain a considerable amount of calcium and Vitamin K that help maintain bone density, and are a good source of vitamin A, which works wonders to give you glossy hair and maintain eye health.
