Maybe you are wondering what types of vegetables are commonly used in one of these healthy drinks? One of the most commonly use vegetables when making a smoothie is the tomato.

The tomato offers plenty of vitamin C and adds tons of flavor to any drink. They are also very easy to blend in your smoothie maker. Just make sure to take the stem off. Another favorite among many is celery. Celery adds more flavor then anything to one of these drinks. I don’t think many would drink a celery only smoothie.
