Savory Spicy 8 Juice

DSC_0020This doesn’t taste anything like a V-8, but I couldn’t help but realize I had 8 ingredients in this juice.

I’m on my last day of my juice feast. I’m amazed at how light I feel and how much mental clarity I have. I really thought it would be so much harder than it was, I think adding the cashew horchata each day saved my vegan bacon.

This Savory Spicy 8 Juice is definitely a metabolism booster with the heat from the jalapeno, It’s also a nice change refreshing change from the green juices for variety in your juice feast. It’s loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. The recipe below made about 46 oz. of juice.


Savory Spicy 8 Juice

  • 6 carrots
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 1-2 parsnips
  • 1 lemon, peeled
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno (use half or omit for a less spicy juice)
  • few sprigs of parsley
  • additional options: a clove of garlic, a big fat handful of greens, 1/2 of a beet

DSC_0024Juice on!

  1. I’m going to share this post with my raw food detox support group. :) We’re blending for the next couple of days on our last 5 days of this program!

    • That would be fantastic! I’ve just done an edit and added a few additional options for add in’s :)

      • This juice was fantastic! I’ve made it now a few times. I made one small substitution. I couldn’t find a nice looking jalapeno in our store (I live in a very small town), so I added a good shake of cayenne. I just checked out your additional options. I must try garlic next! :)

  2. I’ve been thinking about savory smoothies lately – as in needing a change – this looks as if it would hit the spot! Best of luck with your brother’s art event, babe! Wish I could be there to help!

    • YES! I think that’s a great idea (you can even omit the parsnip) ;) Thank goodness my parents are going to help with the show. I don’t know how I’d do it otherwise, the numbers keep growing the closer it gets to the event!

  3. The juice sounds so refreshing, and I love the spicy addition of jalapeño! Good luck with the catering! You’re going to be marvelous!

    Hi Somer,
    How long did you do your juice feast finally ?


  5. My MIL would be all over this juice…..and it’d actually be healthy for her ;-)

  6. How much juice did this yield?

  7. Somer, the juice looks yummy. Considering the juice feast myself, maybe mid-May.

  8. I would love to do that also but I am too thinn and i loose wheight really easily. I thought about to do it once week. The juice looks really yummy and healthy! Did you see the movie Fat, Sick and nearly dead? Check it out!

    What an interesting change from the same old juice. I LOVE parsnips.

  10. Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    Juicing is the way to cleanse, detox & get much needed nutrients. Thank you Ms. Somer.

  11. My juices are only ever sweet, maybe I need to try a savoury styled juice…. (though I am a bit weirded out by tomatoes in my juice).
    Thanks for sharing… I feel challenged to try a new juice today.

  12. I will be doing a 3 day juice fast next week. I had several recipes lined up, but I like the sound of this one with the jalapeno. The jalapeno should add some real kick! Can’t wait to start! I will purchase all my ingredients this weekend from the farmer’s market. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Ooh, I love V8 juice, this looks awesome!

  14. Didie

    Oh Somer,
    You said you drink juice 5-6 times per day.
    How much do you drink each time ? Do you think we have to drink the same amount for smoothie feast ?


  15. Sommer, you’re amazing. How you get your digest out so often while having a family, I can’t fathom. I did this V-8 thing awhile back and it’s great. Just LOVE your photos! You’re doing some fine work, gal. Definitely appreciated.

    When I first did this, my ex-fiancee couldn’t get behind that it didn’t LOOK like commercial V-8!

    Hope you’ll tell us more about your catering experience (and efforts)!

    Namaste! Mark

  16. I think it’s the French Canadian in me, but I love a good tomato based juice. YUM!

    Have fun catering this weekend :)

  17. Juice on, that is the word! I love your 8 ingredients juice: it looks just so tasty & powerful nutrition too, dear Somer! Waw! xxx

  18. How did the art show go, Somer? I bet people LOVED your food! :)

    I’m totally loving all the colours in your juices. So pretty. Will make anyone want to do a juice feast.

  19. Oh man, I remember trying to like my Grams V8 Juice when I was younger but just couldn’t do it! I bet I would feel differently making my own fresh V8 “like” juice – I may have to give this one a try!

  20. Not a huge V-8 fan but I am totally going to try this out! I hope all is well, take care and be well. :)

  21. Oh you are SO inspiring, girl! I need to get myself onto a juice feast too! Love the cutie jars. xx

  22. Looks surprisingly good and I not much into vegi juice. Gotta give it a try!
