You Should Have This Smoothie

Really. You should have this smoothie. Coincidentally, that happens to be the name I gave it. It’s just that good. Sometimes, you want something a little spicy. Something that will make a sweat bead on your forehead. Not something that will give you the hiccups. No, not that spicy. Unless, you like it that way, then, break out the habaneros. I’ll just stick to this. It has enough of a kick from the spicy tomato juice and the horseradish for me.

Let’s get started –

Smoothie ingredients

You’ll need one cup of prepared spicy tomato juice. I used this kind. I use the already made stuff, because it has it’s flavors concentrated and you won’t dilute it by adding in the other goodies. You’ll also need one green onion, two stalks of celery, two tablespoons of prepared horseradish, one tablespoon of lemon juice (excuse the plastic kind, I was out of the real kind) and one cup of ice.

chopped veggies

Go ahead and give the veggies a rough chop. They just fit into the blender better. Measure out the lemon juice and horseradish.

Load the blender

Start with the ice and then add all the rest of the ingredients to the blender. Secure the lid and start blending.


A swirly.

Blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with a stalk of celery and a sprinkle of pepper. If you have a little vodka, splash some of it in there, too. If you are so inclined. This makes an excellent adult beverage.
