This post is brought to you by V8, but all opinions and content is my own.
Did you VegOut with me last week and take the V8 challenge? See what I did for my dare last week: https://www.mythirtyspot.com/2014/10/challenging-you-to-v8vegout-with-me-celebrate-veggies.html/
I love veggies and one of my favorite drinks is a cold Bloody Mary. There are so many variations you can do with it. But, when I am trying to stay healthy and yet satisfy my cravings, I love to make my recipe for Bloody Mary Gazpacho. There are so many ingredients you can add to bulk it up, and I usually eat this for lunch and am completely satisfied.
Obviously, the first and foremost ingredient is V8 juice. With all of the variations of juices, you can really take your gazpacho up a notch. My go-to is always the original, or low sodium, but the flavors are endless and they even have a Bloody Mary V8 flavor. Or you can try their Spicy Mango, Mint & Lime, Spicy Hot or Sea Salt & Clam. Just think of the possibilities!
Gazpacho Bloody Mary
- 32 oz. V8 100% Juice flavor of your choice
