The advantages and disadvantages of Healthy Green smoothies and juices

Green juice


  • Better digestion and better absorption of nutrients: the lack of fiber you need very little energy to digest your juice and then the body better absorbs nutrients.
  • Juices give you an energy boost.
  • There is a higher concentration of nutrients in a juice.
  • A juice extractor operating at low speed (about 80 revolutions / min) this will have the effect of preserving a maximum of enzymes.


  • It takes longer to make a smoothie juice.
  • You will need a lot more fruits and vegetables for a glass of juice a glass of smoothie.
  • Juices oxidize rapidly, so it is necessary to drink them quickly.
  • For the lazy, it may take longer to clean a puller.

Green smoothies


  • In addition to fruits and vegetables, a smoothie can contain many more good things than juice: in fact, you can add super foods, powdered vegetable protein, nuts, berries, etc.
  • Fiber is essential for the elimination of waste / toxins and cleansing our intestines.
  • In addition, the fiber consumption causes a feeling of satiety, which reduces cravings for snacks.
  • Smoothies oxidize much less rapidly than the juice.
  • It is faster to do a green smoothie a green juice.
  • You can replace a meal with a green smoothie without hunger until the next meal.
  • Preference will be given for a cure detox smoothies through fiber that help remove wastes / toxins.


  • For the same volume, there are fewer nutrients in a smoothie in a glass of juice.
  • As the speed of a blender juicer (around 25000 rev / min for my Vitamix blender) is much higher than that of a juice extractor, heat can destroy some nutrients which are why I recommend to first mix the fruit green vegetables and then 30 seconds maximum.

Due to the high speed of a blender, you get a healthy green smoothies at room temperature see warm, even with vegetables and fruits that were cool. It is therefore necessary to add ice cubes if you want a fresh smoothie.
