Juicing vs Blending

 

It might seem obvious, but there is actually a lot of confusion between juicing and blending. So let’s quickly clear things up: juicing is when the machine extracts the juice from your fruit and vegetables, and leaves the pulp (fibre) behind. Blending pulverises the whole produce to create a ‘smoothie’ – with no leftover pulp.

Nutritionists debate tirelessly which is better for you, but we say why not have the best of both worlds? And with our green juice smoothie, you can. This hybrid is a delicious, portable morning meal with all the fibre from your produce to keep you satisfied longer and an extra hit of fresh veggie juice for instant energy.

 

The Green Juice Smoothie

 

Ingredients


Juice
- 1/2 small cucumber
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 medium green apple

Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup frozen broccoli

Instructions


Juice all the ‘juice’ ingredients in a cold-press juicer. Combine fresh juice with the ‘smoothie’ ingredients in a high-powered blender jug. Blend
on high for 30 seconds or until ingredients become smooth and combined. Add more liquid for a thinner consistency or another banana to make
things creamier. Serve immediately.
