    I was really excited to try this, as I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, and love my veggies. I have loved all of your other recipes! This one though, not my fave. This one tasted like a hearty Virgin Bloody Mary, but left me with crazy upset stomach and heartburn (which I don’t generally get, and I eat spicy foods) for half the day. Just a heads up for others who may get heartburn easily.

    Add some avocado to cream it up and it may denature some of the acidity for those of us who get acid reflux or acidic stomach issues.

    Oo! When I saw this one, my mouth watered :P. I froze it along with my other smoothies for the week. I put cayenne pepper instead of red pepper since I had it on hand. I think I’ll put more next time and add another lime. I was worried it would be overpowered the shallots but it actually tasted pretty good! This is going to stay in my rotation for sure!

    Have you guys ever thought about adding a way to rate the recipes? like stars or something? I think it’d be great!

    I was wonderimg if this was your version of V8 juice? I like the juice, NOT all the additives. Thanks so much and I eagerly look forward to trying your recipies !!

    Hi Nancy,

    Yes, they’re similar. Just like a V8 this recipe is packed with veggie goodness to fuel your body!

    Can you use cayenne pepper instead of red pepper in the veggie coctail?

  10. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Esmeralda,

    Of course! Cayenne pepper is a great option when blending our Veggie Cocktail!

    Cheers 🙂

    This sounds good heated up. Like a soup. Has anyone tried that before?

    That sounds like a yummy idea! Have you seen our other warm smoothies?

    Its a healthy combination of veges. Greens mixed with Tomatoes like veges make it best!

    I found this really really thick, had to add four ice cubes and 1/4 cup of water. Still pretty thick. Flavor was OK though. Any suggestions?

  16. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Theresa,

    Thanks for reaching out! The liquid in this recipe comes from the tomatoes. With tomatoes currently out of season throughout the majority of the United States, they may not be providing as much liquid as they would during their peak season. For that reason add additional liquid base, just like you did!! And water is the perfect option!

    Hi, how long can we store that recipe in the fridge? I like just a small glass at lunch. Thanks!

    Hi Nadia,

    Thanks for reaching out! Feel free to store your smoothie in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two days. I personally like to add a little lemon juice to preserve flavor, as well :).

    My husband and I had this for lunch today. It was REALLY good! The grocery store forgot to put my scallions in my bag, so I subbed a pinch of onion salt for the salt, and it worked perfectly. I think this would be really good heated up as a soup, too. Thanks for the savory smoothie recipe!

    Is this similar to tomatoes or vegtable juice like a V8?

  22. SGS Rawkstar

    August 29th, 2016 at 12:03 pm

    Hi Brittany,

    Yes, this recipe is similar to a V8 or tomato based vegetable juice. The red pepper does give it a great little kick of heat!

    How many calories?

  24. SGS Rawkstar

    March 20th, 2017 at 4:41 am

    Hi Carolyn,

    We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    How it will taste..

  26. SGS Rawkstar

    April 10th, 2017 at 4:23 am

    Hi Iqra,

    This tastes like a spiced tomato cocktail. Similar to a Bloody Mary without the vodka, of course!
