  • Why do I like it?

I really wanted to have a savory smoothie, especially during a juice/smoothie fast.  This one hit the spot!  It is thick and creamy without being heavy.  The taste is like a hearty gazpacho.  I needed a spoon to finish the part at the bottom of the cup!

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

I don't like cilantro so I always swap out it out for parsley.  I didn't want to ingest too much raw onion, so I used a scant tablespoon rather than the full tablespoon the recipe calls for.  I omitted the red pepper flakes as I didn't want it to be too spicy.
