Juicing has gained popularity in recent years due to its amazing health benefits. Juicing is simply the process of extracting juices (and nutrients) from produce for easy consumption. By leaving behind pulp that is full of fiber, the body does not have to work as hard to digest the beverage.
Some prefer to drink a smoothie made in a blender, which contains all parts of the produce, including the fiber. And there certainly are benefits associated with that as well, such as creating a potentially better-tasting beverage that fills you up. There is room for both juicing and blending at the table; in this infographic we explore the pros and cons of each. Whichever one you choose, the combinations of produce you can use to create delicious juices and smoothies are endless. With the exception of tough root vegetables, almost any form of produce works well.
Some may think that trying juicing means you have to invest in an expensive juicer, but that is not the case! We have a foolproof method for using your blender to make healthy juice recipes.
