It is the end of summer and I like to celebrate it with vegetable juice prepared from some local and seasonal produce.
My favorite is a homemade version of V-8 juice. The original V-8 recipe calls for eight vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, celery, beets, parsley, lettuce, spinach, and watercress.
However, I found that if I only have three ingredients, it still tastes pretty yummy.
For this Tomato Celery Cucumber Juice recipe, I like to juice tomato, celery, and cucumber, in any proportion, depending on what I have. The taste of this juice is sweet and salty and can satisfy the salty cravings in a very nutritious way.
To make an easy homemade version of V-8 juice, you will need these ingredients:
- Tomatoes, 8-10, average size
- Cucumber, 1 large, or 2 small
- Celery, 2 stalks
Wash and scrub the vegetables. Depending on your juicer, you may need to cut them in halves or quarters. Put the vegetables in the juicer. Enjoy immediately or store in a refrigerator for up to 12 hours to preserve the maximum nutrition.
Here is a quick video on how to make this juice.
To your health,
