View Full Version : Green Smoothie vs. Juice

I was contemplating something today.
I understand how green smoothies work. They break up the walls of the cells in the greens so you can get the nutrition from it. Does juicing do the same thing, minus the fiber?

Yeah, from what I heard the nutrients in fresh juices are more concentrated/potent than in whole fruit or even smoothies. But as you pointed out, they are without the fiber and less work on the digestive system.

I like to have green juice occasionally, it seems lighter to me.

Green smoothies are like a whole meal, green juices are just a concentration of the nutrients from the greens. Green juices are good for fasting

Do Both! I actually like just eating the fruits and veggies whole though. Like someone else said, my mouth is my blender/juicer!! :D

I go back and forth and feel like I got the best of both worlds. My body tells me what I want.
