Which is better: smoothies or green juice? Health professionals comment

Smoothies and green juice may seem alike, but they are not the same in terms of flavor, consistency, or health advantages. I enjoy thick smoothies that still contain a good amount of skins, seeds, and natural fibers. 

However, I prefer my green juice to be clean and transparent. When I need a quick pick-me-up, I might grab a glass of green juice on my way home from work or before heading to the gym.

While you could use either appliance in a pinch, a blender is usually best for making fruit smoothies and a juicer for making green juice. Although neither procedure is very difficult, having a good blender makes things much simpler.

Although it is small and basic, this inexpensive blender is excellent at blending smoothies. 

NutriBullet Pro 900

The best blender on the planet, the Vitamix A3500, costs a lot of money but spins quickly enough to make hot soup.

Even the best juicers still have trouble getting the juice out of leafy greens. That's not a problem for the Zwilling Enfinigy Power Blender, which effortlessly blends spinach and kale into fruit smoothies.

This is the greatest juicer in the world, in my opinion. Although it is more expensive, it yields incredibly pure and clear juice, smooth smoothie bowls, and even almond milk.

Kuvings EVO820

The slow rotation speed of this masticating juicer, 43 RPM, replicates the slow squeeze of freshly pressed juice. Despite having a small feed chute, the Hurom HP easily handles leafy greens and more difficult textures.

Hurom's H-AA slows down the entire juicing process by pressing fresh produce instead of crushing it, allowing your groceries to retain all of their goodness.

It really depends on your body and your needs as to which is healthier, smoothies or green juice. 

WHICH IS HEALTHIER?

Taste is so individualized; whether smoothies or green juice tastes better to you is mostly a matter of taste preference.

WHICH TASTES BETTER?

Smoothies that have been freshly blended are always superior when it comes to convenience. As opposed to juicing, you do not have to maneuver around slender feed chutes.
