Have you ever wondered what the differences between juicing and smoothies were? Are they the same thing? What’s the difference, anyways? Well, if your not sure or confused what the differences between the two, read this post! I will breakdown the differences for your better understanding. To get an even more better understanding of this topic,.
When making smoothies, a blender is required. Just because they both produce a drink (more like saying a liquid) does not mean they are the same. I want to explain a little bit about the differences between the two.
- a juicer is needed
- still kinda hungry (in other words, juices makes you feel lighter & hungrier)
- the fiber and nutrients are separated form the drink, leaving the juice. in other words, when you juice, all the nutrients and fiber (from the ingredients that you are juicing) is separated form the juice itself. Ever notice when juicing, you are left with this:
All you are pretty much left with is juice – not the fiber and the nutrients! I’m not saying that juicing is not epic, cool, boring or does not have any benefits. All I’m saying is that juicing just juices OUT all the fiber and nutrients. Of course, you can still benefit from juicing; all the fiber (and other beneficial benefits) is just left out. Basically, the fiber and the nutrients are separated from the juice, which can be used as compost. To read more about the differences, read this post here.
- a blender is needed
- the fiber stays within the smoothie (drink) unlike juicing, ALL the fibers and nutrients are in the drink, so you absorb ALL the benefits. in other terms, the smoothie is high in fiber and more easier to digest. it also keeps you full!
- you achieve ALL the beneficial fibers and nutrients.
- you are left fuller & more satisfied!
Okay, I adore and love my juices very much, but I just love smoothies more. (hmm….. maybe I love them both the same. Nah, I have more love for smoothies than juices. Although, don’t get me wrong, i still love juicing. Okay, i LOVE BOTH the same.:}). Well, all I know is that I will always have a love affair for both juicing AND smoothies. All I’m saying is, if you would like to achieve ALL the fiber and nutrients in your drink, go for SMOOTHIES! Yum!;)
