Rated 5 out of 5 by Niki01319 from Delicious! Wonderful flavor! I doubled the recipe for my husband and myself and added a little extra onion and parsley. I also used a dash of kosher salt, celery salt and a couple sprinkles of cayenne pepper. I'm an avid juicer, so I'm still trying to get used to the blended texture. Other than that, I love this recipe. Will definitely make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenJ from Better than the store-bought vegetable juice! Great juice, and easily customizable. I added celery, cucumber, a bit of cayenne pepper, a spring of parsley and also cilantro. And because I was out of spinach, I used kale. I'm not sure if this is closer to a gazpacho or a juice, but it was very very tasty! And a great way to use up the little bits of leftover vegetable I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eLucy from If you are going for V8 this a great start.... Like the other reviewers, I think a little spice would make this taste a more like V8. My juice also turned out green even though I followed the recipe (next time I will use more tomatoes or less spinach because I want my V8 to be redish). Also if you blend according to the instructions you do get a good texture - take your time increasing the speed to 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MBurr from Delicious I added a garlic clove, some cayenne and juice from one lemon, and some water to thin it out and this was perfect. Green color but I didn’t mind. Great base recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kmcolli from Yum My juice turned out more brownish/green. However it's probably because I used more spinach. The taste is awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carrot from Delicious! Great afternoon pick-me-up! I add a splash of ACV or lime juice, a couple of dried stevia leaves, a grind of pepper, and about 3/4 cup of water and a few ice cubes. Very customizable to suit taste. The extra water helps reduce some of the texture for a more liquid drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teneka from Tastes Delicious It's refreshing and quick and I will definitely make it again. Mine turned out green too but I added a cucumber. I would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judy078 from Good with some adjustments This recipe was a little too bland without some extra spice. Based on another vegetable juice label, I added some beet powder, Romaine lettuce leaves, some zucchini, cucumber, and substituted a couple slices of leek for the onion. It turned out much better with the added ingredients.
