Nutribullet V8 Juice

I’ve juiced quite a bit but what a hassle. You clean, cut and the push your fruits and veggies through a hole that’s just barely big enough. Apples, carrots, spinach and anything else you discover in the back of your refrigerator. Then, out the back of your juicer shoots a huge spray of residual material, piling like wet sawdust. Then you slurp down the juice while starting the the cleaning process. Dismantle, rinse and then where to put everything…where to put it???

Then I discovered the NutriBullet. They’ve not asked me to write this – it’s just that I absolutely LOVE mine! First, you drink the entire fruit / vegetable so it’s healthier than juicing. The setup is easy – you have a cup and a top. And cleanup is easy – rinse the cup and top. It has 600 watts of power so it can pretty much grind up anything. It can bust open seeds, crack through stems, and shred tough skin. It has 8 vs. 4 blades like your classic blender – that helps too.

Here is my special V8 recipe:

  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Parsley
  • Whole lemon peeled
  • Red pepper (or yellow/green)
  • Flax seed
  • Plus a splash of tabasco sauce if you like it spicy
  • Ice
  • Also try fresh burdock root which you can find in Asian markets

Just shove the cup until it’s full.

Add spring water to the “Max” line, and blend.  (I may be a tiny bit over and will pour a bit out ;)

  1. Can you be more specific with the amounts of each veggie please? Thanks!

    • Hi Rick – Thanks so much for visiting my blog ;) I have to be honest. I pull out things that look good in my fridge and then just start shoving them into the cup. Usually spinach, kale on the bottom and work up to the things that have air around them like carrots on the top. Don’t go too full. I did that one time and it sort of leaked. Fill up with water to the line and then let it go. You can also get fresh tumeric at the store which is good. Let me know if you have any other ideas on what to add! Shelley

  2. I got my NutriBullet yesterday and LOVE it! I’ve been doing green smoothies (using the blender) for a while but this is so much easier. I also love that it’s powerful enough to handle root veggies… So this recipe is PERFECT! My only tweak might be to add a dash of worshestire :-)!

  3. Love V8~but drink the low salt/sodium…how do I keep from having to much salt in the nutrition bullet smoothies

    • Hi Debbie – the beauty of the Nutribullet is that you don’t add any salt. You only blend veggies and fresh lemon juice so it’s totally healthy. Let me know if you try it and if you like it! And thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you’ll come back ;)

  4. How long do you let your Nutribullet run? I tried a similar recipe yesterday and it was good for about 5 min then it seemed very “pulpy.” ???

  5. That looks so good. I’m planning on juicing for 10 days and can’t wait to try this one tonight for dinner. I notice the recipes in the Bullet brochure of fruit based… where can i can more veggie recipies. Thanks for sharing :)

  6. you are a genius! Thank you, its easy and delicious

  7. This was very helpful. I’ve tried a few times to make my own V8 and hven’t had any luck. Thank you for posting

  8. Great site. Plenty of helpful info here. I am sending it to some
    friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And of course, thanks for your sweat!

  9. I have made this twice,and sadly it’s been drinkable but not very much like v-8. The first time it was like salsa, and this AM was not much better. I have been using grape tomatoes so I am wondering if I need big ol beefsteak/jersey tomatoe instead. Definitely added the Worcestershire to it for a Bloody Mary kick. Really hope I can dial in the ratios because it looks amazing,

    • Hi Lou – first, it will not look like a V8, which makes me wonder what non-natural things is in a V8 since it’s so red. The green leafy things that you put in will make the drink green. One think that really makes this drink good is if you put the juice of 1-2 lemons in before you blend it. And a dash of hot sauce is nice too. Try the larger tomatoes too. Let me know if you try any of these and when you get the ratios dialed in! Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)

      • I have had much better success with tweaking this recipe. Still using the cuties tomatoes. I have been using a spinach/kale/Swiss chard blend. Then baby carrots , celery, red peppers, cucumbers, and half a lemon and the juice from the other half. I layer the tomatoes in between some of the other items, so it looks like a parfait.. The color was a solid red finally. Lemons are a little overpowering so I need a sweetening suggestion. Agave syrup perhaps?
