A Real V8 Juice Recipe

This makes enough for 2 glasses of juice or one large glass (16 ounces)


5 tomatoes

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.
