Turbo Nutrient Booster: Vegetable Smoothie Vitamin Powerhouse Recipe (Fruit Free & Raw)

Vegetable Smoothie Vitamin Powerhouse Recipe

Turbo Nutrient Booster Vegetable Smoothie 2

I thought this smoothie was going to be disgusting but I was surprised to actually really enjoy it.  This is another fruit free smoothie and this time it is grain free too.  It’s a pure vegetable smoothie.

Turbo Nutrient Booster Vegetable SmoothieSome people call these blender soups.  I prefer my soups hot, in a bowl with some carbs on the side.  This is not a soup in my mind.  It’s a chilled refreshing vegetable blended salad drink.

I wanted to create a smoothie that was chock a block full of nutrients from a variety of different vegetables.  I didn’t want to waste any of the space with empty calories so there is no water in this smoothie.  The cucumber and tomato provide more than enough liquid to blend this smoothie into a drink, and that means every ounce of space is dedicated to vitamins and minerals to nourish your body and give you a massive energy boost.

This isn’t a meal replacement smoothie as it doesn’t contain any filling grains but I like to think of it more as like a vegetable juice with added fiber as nothing is stripped out.  So it’s great if you want the benefits of juicing but don’t own a juicer like I don’t.  It’s also much quicker to clean a blender than a juicer.

This smoothie is also great for people who don’t like salads.  Blend your salad up, gulp it down (make sure you still chew it) and don’t worry about chewing through mountains of salad each day.  Throughout my pregnancy my taste for salads is up and down like a yo yo so this ensures I’m still getting some nutrients if all I want to do is load up on comforting carbs most of the time.

Although I have a massive sweet tooth and there are loads of nutrition in fruit smoothies, it’s good to get a variety of different fruit and veg so this is a great option for mixing things up a bit and making sure your diet is balanced.

As this smoothie is raw it retains all the available nutrients which would be boiled away if you were to make this into a hot soup.

It actually tastes really good too.  I was bracing myself for the worst and ended up looking forward to my next serving of this later on in the day.  This is a great energy booster in between meals.

This recipe contains 2 servings.  If you don’t have any of the ingredients just leave them out.  It’s quite flexible.

  1. I cannot wrap my head around the idea of a savoury smoothie, even if I try and call it a blender soup. Oh well, maybe one day. I mean there was a time when even the concept of a green smoothie was off-putting ;)

  2. What a powerhouse of a smoothie! It’s like a cleanse in a glass :)

  3. Loved it! Thanks!

  4. Even before trying it this is real stuff coz I know most of what is contained in most of the ingredients. thanks

  5. Well, it wasn’t as yucky as I anticipated, I didn’t like it either though. I’d rather eat my salad or warm it up and call it soup. I think I just didn’t really like the romain though, I’m going to try again with spinach. Thanks for the wonderful base recipe!

    I also added more ginger and cayanne pepper to my taste. I also didn’t like the texture, so added some water just to make it more liquidy…my blender isn’t the best :P
