Savory Green Smoothie

Water, tomato, celery, cucumber, lemon, lime, greens (spinach, kale, or mixed baby greens), turmeric root, avocado
Where did I find it?
This blend was inspired by The Blender Girl Salty Alkaline Kale Green Smoothie
Why do I like it?
I was craving a green smoothie that wasn't sweet, so that means no fruit. This one was fresh and tasty without any fruit to create sweetness. It has a tangy, tart taste which is a nice change from the conventional green smoothie.
What did I change from the original recipe?
I made this while doing a juice/smoothie fast so salt was off limits. Instead I added some lemon juice for brightness and celery to lend some saltiness. I added the turmeric root for some punch to make up for the lack of salt. I omitted the garlic, probiotic powder and liquid aminos as they were not ingredients I wanted to ingest during a juice/smoothie fast.
