You Say Tomato, I Say Gazpacho

So, I left out that I added garlic. But here is my smoothie/gazpacho recipe. The thing about blending is that you can mess up a sauce and call it dressing or in this case, make a rough smoothie and call it soup. The blender is a universe in which the possibilities are vast and endless. If this were a Sci-fi Veggie Tales you'd see a cucumber Spock and a tomato Captain getting beamed up and whisked away to the planets of Dip and Dressing.

Green Gazpacho/Fiber Smoothie:

1 stalk celery

5 green olives

1/2 a tomato

1/4 cup parsley

1/2 large cucumber with skin

1/2 cup chopped pineapple with juice

small garlic clove, smashed

a shake of cinnamon

a dash of hot sauce

I've linked all of the ingredients to health sites so you know what kind of nutrition you're getting. Cinnamon is a big part of my life--I use it every day. It dates back to Bible times and you can find it in the Mediterranean diet that has proven to prolong life and vitality.

If I really were going to make green gazpacho, I would add avocado, salt, olive oil, and artichoke hearts in brine with a pinch of Ancho chili powder.


  1. I have several healthy/green smoothie recipes in electronic form on my tablet with my kindle app. that I downloaded for free. And... that amazing Avocado Salsa I brought you for your birthday was also made in a blender! :)

  2. Yeah, I could've easily eaten that with a spoon.
