Make Your Own Spicy Tomato Sauce and Spicy Tomato Juice

I love tomato juice, but what I buy in the store just isn't quite what I have in mind when I think spicy tomato juice.   Fresh is always best.  One reason is .. we know exactly what we put into it.

I of course used my Ninja Blender since it does a great job at pulverizing all the vegetables I can thow into it.

I have a lot of tomatoes and peppers that I don't want to go to waste so we make tomato sauce and freeze it for later use.


It is so easy to make tomato sauce.  All you do is gather the vegetables you want to put into your sauce and blend it up.

Yes the sauce does look a little pink, but when we cook it down, it will turn red.   I am going to freeze it just like it is and cook it as I need it.

To make the spicy sauce, you can actually add anything you want
In this batch 
I filled the Ninja 3/4 full with tomatoes
I then added a handfull of basil
Some hot peppers
I then whipped it all up in my Ninja
Other things you may want to add
Garlic
Onions
Parsley
Beets
Carrots
Just add anything your heart desires.

Since my Hubs and I love Spicy tomato juice, we use some of the above sauce for our juice.
To make the Spicy Tomato Juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1teaspoon horseradish
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
Salt & Pepper
That is all I added to make the spicy tomato juice.

Put it all into your blender.  Blend and drink

So Good!!

The thing with this is, you can add what ever you want to make your juice taste exactly the way you want it.
