Homemade V8

Updated on March 10, 2015
5 stars from 1 rating of Homemade V8

I love the extra veggies I get from a serving of V8 juice, but that stuff is crazy unhealthy. Yes it has vegetables, but it also has a days supply of sodium. So I came up with my own, but honestly I think I would rather just eat some vegetables. But if you are a fan of V8 this is pretty much the raw, organic version.

  • 4 Cups Tomatoes, Blanched and peeled
  • 1 Cup Celery
  • 1 Cup Lettuce
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice, Fresh Squeezed
  1. Make a cross in the bottom of the tomatoes ( this will make them easier to peel once cooled)
  2. Boil the tomatoes for about 10 minutes in a pot of boiling unsalted water.
  3. Once cool, simply peel the skin off the tomatoes. Add into a food processor or blender and puree with celery and lettuce until blended.
  4. Finish with a squeeze of lemon.

This is honestly not the best tasting thing to me. But I would much rather drink a cup of this then eat 3 salads a day.
