View Full Version : Freezing my Green Drinks
11-06-2005, 09:46 PM
I travel quite a bit for my Job and I am on the road alot (generally 10 am to 9 pm), and once a week gone overnight. I want to take my green drinks so I have frozen a few for the second day I am gone from home. I am wondering if I am losing the benefit from freezing and if I would be better off doing fruit in the morning instead of my green drink ?
I prefer the green drink as it sustains me for a longer time.
Thanks for your help here !

In July I did a training course with Elaine Bruce at The UK Centre for Living Foods and this was one of the questions that I asked.
My interest was for a different reason. I figured that as fruit and veg looses some of the goodness over time, it would make sense to juice when very fresh and freeze the juice and it would preserve it better.
I was informed that because juicing removes the enzymes and nutrients from within the cell wall it begins to oxidise immediatly and should be used immediatly.
This does not apply to smoothies as the mechanics of making them is different and the cell wall is not broken so these can be used later and frozen if necessary.
