Energizing Tomato Smoothie

tomato smoothie blog

 

I had a lot of tomatoes on hand and needed to figure out different ways to use them before they went bad. I used 3 summer yellow tomatoes in my smoothie this morning! Here is the full list of what I used:

3 med yellow tomatoes

6 mini carrots

1 kiwi

2 mini orange sweet peppers

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/4 cup cranberry nectar

4 ice cubes

tomato smoothie

I removed the watery seeds from the tomatoes, gave them a rough chop and then added all of the  ingredients into the blender and blended until smooth!

This one was definitely energizing! You can also make it spicy if you want by adding pepper, etc.

Enjoy!!
