BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
I added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 more worcestershire sauce plus a few grinds of black pepper.
I used pepper/pepar vodka, would also be FABULOUS with bacon vodka! I really enjoyed this, will definitely be making again.
When it came to freezing the mix, I put it in a big plastic bowl and froze it for 4.5 hours but mixed it up each hour to make sure not to end up with a solid block and liquid center.
HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS TOMATOES
A tomato is actually a fruit, not a vegetable. Originating in South America, the tomato was spread around the world following the Spanish colonization of the Americas, and its many varieties are now widely grown, often in greenhouses in cooler climates.
One of the most well known tomato eating benefit is its Lycopene content.
Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant that helps in the fight against cancerous cell formation as well as other kinds of health complications and diseases.
Free radicals in the body can be flushed out with high levels of Lycopene, and the tomato is so amply loaded with this vital anti-oxidant that it actually derives its rich redness from the nutrient.
Lycopene is not a naturally produced element within the body and the human body requires sources of Lycopene in order to make use of this powerful anti-oxidant.
While other fruits and vegetables do contain this necessary health ingredient, no other fruit or vegetable has the high concentration of Lycopene that the tomato takes pride in.
