Yes, it’s green! And yes, it does taste great! The spice is a real kicker, too. After a weekend with a little too much imbibing, a little spice and a lot of fresh veggies is a good thing.
Since green smoothies are all the rage, it’s time to get your Green Mary on! Fresh cucumber and cilantro blend beautifully in this delicious spicy green frozen Mary’s Morning After Bloody Mary. I won’t go so far to say that alcoholic beverages are healthy, but this green Bloody Mary with fresh veggies blended in are one small step in the right direction. You will truly be drinking fresh. Take fresh a step further by substituting peeled fresh tomatoes for the tomato juice.
