A smoothie is a blended beverage made with solid and liquid ingredients: fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, water, milk, or plant-based beverages, etc. Smoothies are blended using a NutriBullet® or traditional blender, and the finished product retains all of the material--skins, pulp, and fiber--of their whole food ingredients. A nutrient-rich smoothie may serve as a meal replacement or snack, and can help to boost your fiber intake for the day.
Juice is made by extracting nutrient-rich liquid from whole fruits and vegetables. Juicers separate the solid components of fresh produce--pulp, skin, fiber, etc--from their liquid content, which is then filtered through a spout and into a glass or pitcher for drinking. While juices do not contain fiber, they do provide concentrated amounts of plant-based nutrients. They’re great for a quick pick-me-up, and can help to add an extra boost of fruit and veggie goodness to your day. A combination of fresh juices and smoothies can be great additions to a healthy, active lifestyle.
