Blending vs Juicing

I’ve received many inquiries on why I juice before I blend. You can just juice, just blend, or juice and blend. Watch while I demonstrate the difference between blending vs juicing.

So as you can see it’s a matter of consistency and flavor in juicing vs blending. Also that you may lose some nutrients and fiber when juicing. When it comes to juicing hard vegetables in blending vs juicing, it’s much easier to juice them.

I love my Blendtec and Vitamix blender, but when making a whole food smoothie, a liquid is necessary. I would suggest Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, or Coconut Water. Try orange juice as well!

Did you think this was informative and do you have any more questions and concerns? I’m always happy to answer and talk to anyone about anything.

Have you tried both blending vs juicing yet? What were your thoughts? I’d love to hear from you!

    Thank you for the video. I think I will just go with a Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized citrus press. I just want something that will give me straight orange juice, and nothing that would look like a smoothie. I plan to buy a Vitamix for that.

    When you juice and pour it into the blender does it give it a different taste?

    I think if you would tell your viewers why you put the juice in the blender and mix it with your smoothie would help people understand it much better too. Just my thought. Have a great day.
