Iced Virgin Mary Breakfast Juice
This clean-eating tomato juice is a brilliant way to start the day. You can purchase tomato juice that is not made from concentrate from most UK supermarkets, including Sainsburys and ASDA. In this recipe, the tomato juice is mixed with spices and then served over ice for a refreshing and healthy start to the day.
Most commercial tomato juices have been cooked gently before being blended. This cooking process reduces the vitamin C content but enhances its lycopene content. Lycopene has been demonstrated to have significant anticancer activity, this activity is further bolstered by the turmeric and black pepper in this drink.
- Add the tomato juice, lemon juice, turmeric and black pepper to a jug and mix well.
- Add the tabasco sauce to taste. If you’re not familiar with tabasco, add 1 or 2 drops to start with and try it before adding more.
- Pour the juice into a glass containing your ice cubes and the stick of celery. You can stir the drink with the celery stick to keep the spices from settling in the drink.
