EMBELLIR BEVERAGES: Diabetic-Kicking Bloody Mary in the Spotlight

BEVERAGE IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Diane's Diabetic-Kicking Bloody Mary
SERVINGS: 2
Tomatoes contain lycopene which is an antioxidant.  Antioxidants help protect the cells.   In addition, lycopene helps to raise good cholesterol levels while helping to decrease bad cholesterol levels.  They are also a great source of many nutrients, including Vitamin C and Vitamin K.  Really important is that tomato juice helps to make the blood of a diabetic less acidic.  When you top that with the spices, this drink is a real winner to consume daily or every other day!

2 large round tomatoes, unpeeled, chopped
2 cups pure tomato juice, slightly frozen if you have time
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 tsp sugar, optional
1 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp thyme 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup ice

Pour into beautiful glass and add ice.  Optional garnishes are lime slices, olives, and celery leaves.
ENJOY!

Optional if you are not an alcoholic:   Of cours…
