A wonderfully healthy lunch treat. Similiar consistency to a smoothie I would say. I enjoyed the addition of both the hot sauce and the lime. I did add about 1 T of water to thin it out a bit and added a pinch of salt. THANKS! Made for bevy tag.

I used fresh Roma tomatoes for this recipe along with S&P. I tasted it first before adding and it definitely needed at least the salt portion. I didn't quite get the lime taste to come thru, but that was o.k. This is actually a filling type drink more on the order of a shake or thick malt. I'm glad you posted and glad I gave it a go for PhotoTag~
