Have you ever tried making a savory smoothie?
This non-alcoholic, breakfast-worthy spin on a traditional Bloody Mary cocktail is a splendid (s'blended!) introduction to veggie-based smoothies.
Loaded with flavor, this bold blend will seduce you with every sip. Add more Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, horseradish, and lemon juice for an even bolder experience.
To take the experience up a step, try salting the rim of your glass and serving with a celery stick. You won't even miss the vodka.
