Yes, a smoothie made with tomatoes may sound weird. However, making them part of a healthy diet is essential, especially for women. The benefits of fruits and vegetables, especially tomatoes, cannot be disputed. And if your diet could use a little color (…or a lot), smoothies is a great way to increase your intake of tomatoes.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamins, beta-carotene, potassium, lycopene, antioxidants and fiber. All of these nutrients work together to help prevent cancer, reduce the risk of heart disease – #1 killer in women; improve vision and promote digestive health.
Living in Florida, we have access to local-grown and imported tomatoes year around: grape, plum, campari, beefstakes, vineripe, etc. Since many people don’t like the taste of tomatoes, it’s best to pick the sweetest variety and blend tomatoes together with other fruits and vegetables. So let’s give it a try and rip the benefits.
The recipe for today’s smoothie is provided by Davy and Tracy at Incredible Smoothies. They recommend mixing tomatoes with mangoes.
- 1 mango, peeled and pitted
- 4 ounces of almond milk
- 2 Campari tomatoes
