Juicer vs Blender: Which is Best?

17 May 2024

Smoothie? Shake? Juice? It can get a little confusing when delving into the world of juicing for the first time.

You’ve probably had a ‘smoothie’ before and almost certainly had fruit juice.

The problem with most fruit juices are that they contain a lot of added extras-especially sugar and perhaps some preservatives to keep them fresher for longer.

Cold-pressed juices are the best of the bunch.

These are juices that have been pressed in hydraulic press juicing machines like the Norwalk that makes a really concentrated super high-quality juice.

Juicer vs Blender

Due to the lack of heat, all the nutrients remain within the juice so the health benefits remain.

Some cheaper juicers produce heat during operation that can damage the final juice. These should ideally be avoided if you want to get the maximum health benefits from your juicing.

We review some of the best juicers here.

A smoothie refers to a drink made with a blender. This is when all the ingredients are mixed together to form a think drink.

Blenders are great for people in a hurry and for people who might not be so concerned with getting the full nutritional benefit from their fruits and vegetables.

If I’m in a hurry i often make a protein shake using my Nutribullet blender. I just throw in some whey protein, a little milk and whatever fruits take my fancy and I’ve got a quick and nutritious snack. Much better than a chocolate bar :-).

If I’ve got some more time i much prefer to juice.

Juicing is known to preserve a lot more nutrients than blending and i like the fact that i can tailor the taste with a lot more precision.

Need some energy? Add some ginseng.

Having problems sleeping? Add some magnesium-rich leafy greens and grapefruit.
