This makes enough for 2 glasses of juice or one large glass (16 ounces)
1 beet (greens optional, but I left them out), cut in wedges
4 long carrots
1 bunch of spinach, equal to 2 cups
5 celery stalks
1 small bunch of parsley, about ¼ cup
Prepare the tomatoes and beet by cutting them in wedges. Cut the carrots and celery into 3-inch pieces. Juice the tomatoes, beet, spinach, celery, carrots and parsley, alternating. Mix to combine. Serve immediately.
Variations and enhancements on the V8 juice recipe
Like it salty-er? Add more celery.
Like it mostly tomato based? Add more tomatoes.
Want more greens? A handful of lettuce or watercress won’t change the taste too much.
Add black pepper for a kick.
Add a lime wedge to the recipe or to the glass.
Add a dash of cayenne pepper or hot sauce for heat and health benefits.
