Recipe #343: Paleo Virgin Mary

Posted Feb 01 2013 7:19pm

Made this drink today, right after completing the photo shoot for the sweet potatoes recipe . Of course, as one might surmise from the title, it's for our upcoming book, Paleo Fitness . :) The below version is a non-Paleo format but contains a simple modification to make it Paleo, i.e., the omission of salt. True to form, this Virgin Mary's definitely got a kick to it. So buckle up, and get ready for a wild ride. :)

Paleo Virgin Mary

4 c. vine-ripened tomatoes, diced (about 5 large tomatoes)
1 c. celery, roughly chopped
1 c. carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
1/4 c. scallions, roughly chopped
2 tsp. pure white horseradish, ground (or to taste; for slightly less heat, use 1 1/2 tsp. instead)
1/2 c. freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice (about 3-4 limes or lemons)
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. coarse ground sea salt (omit if Paleo)

Optional Garnish Ideas:
4 large leafy celery stalks, cut in half
lime or lemon slices
carrot &/or cucumber sticks (use as swizzle sticks)
fresh basil leaves
red bell pepper slices
garlic, minced or crushed (mixed into the drinks)

Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a large pitcher and chill. Serve over ice cubes and decorate each glass with the garnish of your choice.

Yield: 40 oz., or 5 (1 c.) servings.

Chef's Notes: To avoid watering down your drinks, reserve some of the Paleo Virgin Mary beverage, freeze into ice cubes, and use instead of traditional ice cubes.
