How to Make Your Own Tomato Juice – Part 2

In Part I, you read about the health benefits of drinking tomato juice, and now you’re going to learn how to make it yourself–easy peasy, er, easy tomato-ey!

1. Blanch.
Bring a pot of water to boil and then put in a few tomatoes at a time. When the water comes back to a boil, let them in the water for about 10 seconds, remove with a slotted spoon, and put into a bowl of cold water.

2. Peel.
Core the tomatoes and then make a cross in the top and pull back the peel. You can save the peels for sauces if you like.

3. Seed and Juice.

Cut the tomato cross-wise and then squeeze out the juice and seeds, preferably over a juicer to catch the seeds, unless, of course, you’re not bothered by seeds in your juice.

At this point, you can add whatever you like to your juice–simply a squeeze of lemon, vanilla extract, or a pinch of salt/sugar–but for the more adventurous, check out some great tomato juice recipes at or a great Bloody Mary base from HGTV.

Bottoms up!

    We have been regularly drinking tomato juice,believe me,results are amazing,your skin glows,there is weight loss plus one feels energetic and enthusiastic.

    In our house,we have made it compulsory to drink tomato juice either with lemon juice or cucumber juice.It is much more better than drinking tea or coffee.Twice a day ,at least 4 to 6 glasses is a must.Try and let us know.
