Copycat Sugar Free V8 Juice recipe

image

Mr. Incredible loves V8 juice. The thing is, it’s expensive and made with ingredients that can spike some people’s blood sugar. You can make a copycat for pennies on the dollar and for fewer carbs than ten plus per one cup serving.

When buying tomato paste, always, ALWAYS check the ingredients label.  Some brands have stuff in them, like added sugar. One can of Aldi tomato paste has 30 total carbs, and that was what I used for this.

Make Your Own Sugar Free V8 Juice Copycat

One can no sodium tomato paste
4 cans water (I add a bit more water to make it an even 4 cups)
Mix well then add:
1 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
pinch pepper
3 shakes of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon horseradish

Several shakes of hot sauce (Optional)
A packet of sweetener (Optional)

Take all of the ingredients and mix them up (a whisk works best!), pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator.

Per one cup serving, there will be roughly 8 carbs, depending on your ingredients. This really works well in recipes like chili and soup, to give it a nice tomato flavor without adding a lot of carb.
