The natural sweetness of grape tomatoes is a wonderful partner for kale juice in this Bloody Mary inspired non-alcoholic drink. Head here for more kale juice recipes we love ยป

Note: Grape or cherry tomatoes generally have better flavor than out-of-season regular tomatoes. If you have ripe in-season tomatoes, you can substitute them for the grape or cherry tomatoes. This recipe yields about 1 cup of juice, enough for two 1/2-cup servings. Juice is best served immediately and will lost flavor and color with time. Store leftover juice in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. In our testing, it took about 1 1/2 pounds of kale to produce 1 cup of juice. Results may vary based on kale and on juicer.
