Juicer Bloody Marys

The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Pro has been one of our favorite gifts. We experimented with it and came up with some healthy, potent juices like apple-carrot-spinach and clementine-ginger. It wasn't long before I was looking for a more sinister use for the juice, and that is when I came up with an idea for a juicer bloody mary. It was the perfect companion to the black-eyed peas, greens, and cornbread at a New Year's Day party. Because everything is fresh, my version of this venerable brunch beverage tastes light and clean when you compare it to the thick, preservative-heavy mixes you find at the store. Try this recipe for yourself with or without the vodka.

Juicer Bloody Marys (makes 8 servings)

8-10 large roma or medium slicer tomatoes
1 stalk of celery (use small ribs and leaves as garnish)
1 large cucumber
1 green bell pepper
1 jalapeno (pull out the seeds and ribs if you like it mild)
2 medium carrots
1 clove of garlic
2 limes
2 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
cracked pepper to taste

vodka (optional)
10 pieces of pickled okra or pickled beans
small inner celery ribs with tops

Rinse the vegetables and the limes. (No need to peel if you have a powerful juicer.) Juice them up and pour into a pitcher. Add the sauce, paste, salt, and pepper and stir. Serve over ice. Add vodka if you like and garnish with pickled okra and celery tops.


  1. hey I'd like to make this one this weekend !!! Susie

  2. you're welcome! I got one of those jack juicers !

  3. Oh my goodness, this was the best Bloody Mary I have ever tasted. It was so fresh! Its my new favorite drink, now that I can look forward to the taste, rather than bearing the usual bar mix. I wouldn't change a thing.. Mine made 8 cups of juice. I'm wondering if you should specify servings like 8 8 oz servings? Not sure if that is appropriate. (just so people would know glass size to use, or maybe there is a standard for bloody Mary's?)
    Thanks for reintroducing me to this outstanding drink.

  4. YEah! That makes me happy. I brought them to a party once and that was the sentiment.

  5. You're welcome! I so enjoyed, will definitely be making again :-)
