Tomatoes are absolutely delicious right now. I bought so many tomatoes that I didn’t even know what to do with them all. After making lots of bruschetta and chopped vegan caprese salad, I decided to try something new…tomato and garlic juice! This juice is super delicious, especially if you have juicy, ripe tomatoes.
Additionally, this juice will give you lots of nutrients. There are many nutritional benefits of tomatoes. They are known for their high amount of antioxidants. But beyond that, and besides the obvious high amount of lycopene, tomatoes also support heart health, bone health, and even may have anti-cancer benefits. There are also many benefits of garlic. Garlic improves cardiovascular health, has anti-inflammatory properties, antibacterial benefits, antiviral benefits, and may even help prevent cancer.
Makes 1 cup
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8 campari tomatoes
- 2 cloves of garlic or 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
I started juicing with my garlic so that the tomatoes would help push it through. After the garlic is in your juicer, wash and cut your tomatoes in half and then place in the juicer. Once this has all been juiced, you will be left with a one cup serving of this delicious and nutritious tomato garlic juice.
