Sunday morning coffee with "gazpacho"

I've left out so many things I was allergic to over the years that it isn't really gazpacho, it's a vegetable smoothie. As I commented over on Cranky Fitness, I don't often bother with fruit smoothies. I like fruit, but I like it unblended. I mostly don't like my cooked vegetables messed about with, either, but in the case of my allergy-friendly version of gazpacho, I find the whole greater than the sum of the parts.

I put it together (heirloom tomato, zucchini, bell pepper, and just a touch of cayenne) and it was so pretty I had to take a picture.


Drink for breakfast. (I don't do protein powder. I ate some chunks of cheddar.)


  1. Wow, so pretty and healthy! My smoothies are a gray/brown color, and not nearly as nice to look at.

  2. Looks yummy! I might have to try making one. Not a fan of tomato cocktail-type things, but this one sounds good.

  3. Tomatoes make everything prettier! Crabby, my soups that have no tomato (not all of them) are greenish-brown, but still tasty. BL, thinking of V8 and spicy tomato juice concoctions, this is more like eating a fresh tomato in the garden (but not quite that good--nothing is!) but you might want to reduce the proportion of tomato if you try it.
