Vegetable smoothies are some of my favorite recipes to start the day with. They’re always refreshing, light, and as a bonus – they’re a great way to pack almost an entire day’s worth of veggies into one healthy drink!

You can make savory smoothies (with more veggies and spices), or make them sweet (with the addition of lots of fruit) – but they’re delicious no matter how you enjoy it.

🥘 Ingredients

This savory smoothie recipe requires just a handful of simple ingredients, easily found at your local grocery store! For detailed instructions and nutrition facts, see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Ingredients for easy tomato smoothie recipe on a white background.
  • Fresh Tomatoes: The key ingredient for this tomato shake! You can use any type of tomatoes you like. I used roma tomatoes, but you can use hot house, grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, or even heirloom.
  • Tomato Juice: I used 1 cup tomato juice for this recipe. Tomato juice adds liquid to the recipe without sacrificing any of the rich tomato flavor.
  • Baby Spinach Leaves: Spinach leaves add a punch of nutrition that you can’t even taste among the rest of the ingredients. You can use other leafy greens in this recipe, just be aware that others like kale will not be as mild and may change the flavor of the recipe.
  • Green Onions: Green onion offers a little bit of spice and peppery flavor to this tomato spinach smoothie.
  • Celery Stalk: Celery pieces have that fresh and clean taste that makes this healthy tomato smoothie so refreshing.
  • Lemon Juice, Salt And Pepper: Lemons are a flavor enhancer and provide a citrusy, acidic element to this recipe. And no savory recipe would be complete without salt and pepper. They are essential for flavor, don’t skip these!
  • Hot Sauce: Spice up your red tomato fruit smoothie with this totally optional ingredient. You can use Tabasco sauce, or if you don’t have hot sauce you can try cayenne pepper, black pepper, or even crushed red pepper.

💭 Expert Tips

  • Make your smoothie creamier by adding avocado. This high-fat fruit will barely be noticeable in the taste, but make a great creamy consistency in this v8 juice smoothie copycat.
  • Use fresh tomatoes that are perfectly ripe to make this smoothie fresh and delicious. Unripe tomatoes won’t be as rich in flavor and may be slightly bitter in this tomato juice smoothie.
  • For best results, use a high powered blender or specialized smoothie maker. That way you can easily blend up and pulverize all of the high fiber ingredients in this smoothie. If you aren’t using a high powered blender, you may need to blend for longer or you may not end up with a super smooth smoothie.
  • Make sure to adjust your seasonings before serving. Add more salt or hot sauce to taste.

📖 Variations

  • Tomato Cucumber Smoothie: Add an even more fresh and crisp flavor to this delicious recipe by adding cucumber.
  • Tomato Banana Smoothie: Adding banana will give your smoothie a subtle sweetness and a rich, creamy texture.
  • Add Other Fruits Or Veggies: For fruit smoothies – try mango, apples, pear, pineapples or even a mix of berries (strawberries & blueberries would taste great). For veggies, you can add other leafy greens for more of a green smoothie feel, a bell pepper, or even sweet potatoes.
  • Add More Flavor: You can add more heat with cayenne or other hot spices like chili powder, or try fresh garlic, fresh basil or lime juice for more flavor without the heat.
  • Tomato Carrot Smoothie: Toss some carrots in the mix for even more health benefits and a slightly sweet flavor.
  • V8 Smoothie Recipe: With the addition of carrots, beets, and Worcestershire sauce, you can make a smoothie that feels like homemade V8 juice! Feel free to add protein and healthy fats as well by adding in chia seeds, hemp seeds or flax seeds.

❓Recipe FAQs

WHAT ARE TOMATO SMOOTHIE BENEFITS?

Tomato smoothies are super healthy for you! They are packed with vitamins and minerals (rich in rich in Vitamins C, Folate, Vitamin K and Potassium), are a great source of antioxidants – specifically lycopene – and can help reduce inflammation.

In addition, they’re low in calories and high in fiber. One serving of this tomato smoothie recipe has under 60 calories but has 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein!

IS TOMATO SMOOTHIE GOOD FOR SKIN?

Yes! Because tomato juice is high in antioxidants and is also an astringent, it can be a great drink for promoting skin cell repair, for tightening the skin overall, and for reducing excess oil production on the skin.

IS IT HEALTHY TO DRINK TOMATO JUICE EVERY DAY?

Drinking tomato juice is an excellent way to increase healthy nutrients and antioxidants in your diet. But drinking tomato juice daily is not recommended because it can have a laxative effect. It’s best to drink tomato juice every other day, and keep your portion to be between 4-8 ounces.

WHY IS TOMATO SAUCE NOT A SMOOTHIE?

Tomato sauce is a cooked sauce of pureed tomatoes, while a smoothie is a fresh, raw blend of tomatoes and other vegetables. Tomato sauce is usually served warm, and mixed with other ingredients — like added to pasta sauces, curries, stews, etc. Smoothies, on the other hand, are served at room temperature or over ice cubes.

What are the best vegetables for smoothies?

Vegetables are some of the best ingredients to add to smoothies, because their flavors blend well with sweet fruits and you can sneak in so much nutrition into just one drink! Some of the best vegetables to add to smoothies are: any leafy green vegetable (kale, spinach, arugula, etc), cauliflower, squashes (zucchini, pumpkin, butternut squash), sweet potatoes, carrots, cucumber, and even broccoli!

How do you store a tomato smoothie?

Tomato smoothies are best served immediately, but they can be stored for 1-2 days in an airtight container in the fridge. Make sure to stir or re-blend before serving.
