Blending vs Juicing – Which is Best for Weight Loss


This is John Kohler with discountjuicers.com.
Today I have another exciting episode for you. What we’re going to do today is discuss
the differences between blending and juicing, specifically for weight loss but this applies,
you know, to the main differences and I’m going to go over the pros and cons of each
one and show you guys what each machine does. Now, some people confuse blending and juicing
or smoothies and they use the terms interchangeably. Nothing could be further form the truth. They’re
totally different, although you can use your blender to juice if you use like another thing
to strain it out and you could also use your juicer like a blender to basically mix the
juice and pulp together to make kind of make a blended or mushed up mashed up mixture.
So, each of these machines in my opinion have their benefits and if you’re going for the
weight loss, what I recommend over all else is, you know, eat the foods that are going
to best benefit your body, and those are the nutrient dense foods. The nutrient dense foods
are the foods that you’re seeing on the table here. Fruits and vegetables. Today we have
some arugula, some oranges, and some cucumbers. So, these are the foods we want to include
and you want to get away fro the junk food, the fast food, the McDonalds, eating out of
restaurants. You wan to eat as much fruit, fresh fruits and vegetables, as possible,
whether you’re doing it in a juicer, whether you’re doing it in a blender. No matter what,
in my opinion, as long as you move your diet in the right direction and eat more fruits
and vegetables, you’re going to be more off better than the person that doesn’t. So, if
that means you got to blend and not juice because you got a $25 blender form Wal-Mart
and that gets more fruits and vegetables in you, that’s fine. If you got a juicer, hey,
I mean, I think that’s even better. In any case, let’s go over the differences between
them and I’m actually going to produce juice and a smoothie in the blender in each one
while I go over the pros and cons. So, I already explained actually what I got and the first
we’re going to do is prepare the produce. WE can throw in our baby arugula into the
juicer as is. We can also through the cucumber into both as is. The oranges, you know, you
can’t put the whole things through the machine, but that being said, the orange coloring on
the skin has some non-digestible chemicals that taste bad and will also give you gas,
bloating, and belching. So, if you don’t want that I highly encourage you guys to cut off
the orange coloring. I’m actually going to do that first using a little knife here, and
were just going to go ahead and but off that orange coloring, and we’re going to leave
all that white pit. The white pith is where most of the (unclear) is, and where the nutrients
are actually contained in the orange but how many people actually peel their orange and
eat only the inside and not the white pith? So, doing it and cutting your orange this
way, you’re going to preserve and get the most nutrition in your juice or your smoothie.
So, as I cut this off, what I want to talk to you about is first the machines that we’re
using. So, first, today what we’re using is an Omega Vert 338 juicer. This is a slow speed
juicer. It runs at 80 RPMs and that’s a slow speed, and because it’s slow it’s going to
be quiet and it’s going to preserve the most nutrition in the juice. Some juicers run up
to 10000, 11000 RPMs, and that’s a lot faster, and they tend to oxidize juice more. Let’s
go ahead and flip over to the blender now. So, the blender that we’re using today is
the VitaMix TurboBlend VS, and this is the one that I recommend if you want to, you know,
get a really good blender. You know, all blenders are not created equal. You know, all blenders
will blend up, you know, basically a liquid, but the VitaMix will do it all together definitely
because it runs at such high RPMs. 27000 RPM. That’s magnitudes faster than the 80 RPM juicer,
and it has fairly sharp blades to literally fractionate and cut up and micronize all the
ingredients that you put inside of it. If you use a standard blender from, say, Wal-Mart,
that’s not running so fast and the blades aren’t so sharp, it tends to leave large chunks
and when you leave large chunks in whatever you’re drinking, you’re not going to get optimal
digestion out of it. These are 2 appliances that I recommend for juicing or blending,
but they will process a wide variety of things, although there are specialized varieties of
juicers if you want to juice certain items. So, yea, big differences between to store-bought
blenders and the heavy-duty commercial blender for people that really are into and what to
get the maximum nutrition out of the food. On the juicer side, same thing. You can buy
an inexpensive juicer but they’re not going to work the same. Most inexpensive juicers
are actually called centripetal ejection style juicers, and those are the ones that run at
high speeds and they oxidize your food more, and I don’t know about you but I’m eating
for the nutrition, not just for the mouth feel, not just for the texture, although that’s
definitely important, too. I want to get the most nutrition out of my food, because, you
know, in the end you are what you eat and absorb, and I want to out the healthiest foods
in my body so that I can be as healthy as possible, and to do that, we need to have
the right tools, and that’s why I prefer both of these machines. We’re just going to go
ahead and cut the peel off this guy and then we’ll be back at you to discuss the pros and
cons of both blending and juicing, ’cause there’s no one that is clearly the winner,
and which one is truly the best. Now we’re ready to start using the appliances and share
with you guys the pros and cons in each of them. So, let’s first start with the juicer.
The juicer is really easy to use and runs at the slowest speed and is relatively quiet.
We got to go ahead and cut the orange up a little bit smaller so that they will fit into
the feed shoot of the machine. Now we’re going to turn the machine on and start juicing.
Now, one of the pros of juicing is that you can actually fit more produce or get more
produce in you. For example, we’re putting 5 ounces of baby arugula, but in some juice
I’ll out literally 1 whole pound of leafy greens into the juice, and that’ll literally
turn into about 1, 1 ¼ cups of fresh vegetables juice, so that way you can get al lot more
of the nutrition, except the fiber. Let’s go ahead and out some of the arugula into
the juicer here. What the juicer literally does, it literally compresses down and squeezes
with the omega action on the juicer to extract the rich nutrition form the juice that’s contained
within the water. Now, it removes all the fiber, so for some that may be a benefit.
I believe it is a benefit because, you know, our bodies are nothing more or less than a
juice extractor. We put stuff in our mouths, we’re supposed to chew it really well into
a mush and then swallow it, and then guess what? Our body can only absorb nutrition that’s
in a liquid state with the little philis that’s inside our intestines. So, if something not
in a liquid state or broken down finely enough, you know, it’s just going to go right through
us and not get absorbed. That’s where the juicer comes in. It’s going to literally turn
the food into that liquid and the fiber, and think about it. When we eat something, out
one side of us comes the liquid, and out the other side comes out fiber, so both are fairly
important. Let’s go ahead and put an orange in there. So, the first thing is more quantity.
You could literally choose to pack a pound or maybe even 2 pounds of leafy greens, which
is the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, so that you can get more nutrition in you.
Another thing that’s important with the juicer because it is removing the fiber, and that’s
what our bodies should be doing if working properly, is that you may get better digestion.
Especially after years and years of maybe not eating the right stuff, peoples digestive
systems are not working properly, and if something is in the liquid state it’s most likely to
be digested and digested the easiest. Another things about juicing is that it’s actually
one of the best ways to get an instant shot of energy. Some people say that within 30
minutes of juicing and drinking the juice, you’re going to absorb the nutrition in the
juice. Another benefit of juicing is that it’s actually fairly quiet. I mean, I’m talking
here over the juicer and it’s running fine, and it’s not hat loud. So, say you’ve got
to prepare your juice or smoothie in the morning, you know, the juicer won’t wake up the other
family members in your family. As you can see, we’re almost done juicing this baby arugula
here. It’s doing very well. We’ve got a whole bunch of juice and all the fibers coming out
over here. I mean, this is the hard indigestible fiber and this stuff’s actually fairly dry.
GO ahead and put some more orange in there. So, one of the things I like about the low
speed juicer is it’s more similar to our teeth. I mean, if we were to have to just use our
teeth to chew all this up, then we could be a juicer. We could literally squeeze all the
juice out with our teeth at low RPMs or running really slow, and just spit all the pulp out.
Normally you just swallow it and you let our bodies separate the liquid from the pulp.
So, it runs at a slow speed, and I like that a lot because it’s more similar to our body.
With the blender, it runs at a high speeds, which, you know, not as close to what our
body does. That being said, we are separating the pulp out form the juice here. If we wanted
to have the pulp in, you could actually just take this pulp and mix it in your juice and
stir it all up if that’s what you desire, then you’re going to get the pulp and everything
at a low speeds so it’s not going to degrade the nutrition as much. So, another big pro
for juicing, in my opinion, is that places like the Garson Therapy, and you guys have
heard of that, they use juicing to potentially heal people from their ailments. So, people
with cancer go to Garson Therapy, do the Garson Therapy in Mexico, and they just literally
drink juice to get these people better from incurable diseases in the body. So, I don’t
know anybody that’s doing that with the blended smoothies. Most of the places that really
heal people focus on the juice because you get all the nutrition out in the easiest way
to absorb. I guess a few cons for juicing is that, number 1, it removes the fiber. Yes,
we need fibers in our body to keep us clean on the inside, although there is some fiber
in this juice, especially if you use the Omega Verde. It makes some of the pulpous juices,
which you can filter out or you can leave in. Another con of juicing, as you can see,
we used all this produce, and we got a whole bunch of juice and we also got a whole lot
of pulp. So, you know, you can burn through a lot of produce very quickly and a lot of
it’s going to be in the pulp, so I recommend you get a good quality juicer that’s going
to make a fairly dry pulp, like the Omega Verde does. Finally the other con if juicing
is that it can make more time. As you saw, it can take some time to prepare the produce,
and to put it in took some time, and now cleaning this juicer will take some time as well. This
juicer takes me about 3 minutes to clean, and it’s one of the most easiest to clean
juicers that I know of. That sums up the pros and cons of juicing. Next let’s go over to
the blender and talk more about the blending and why it may be better than juicing but
also why it may not be. What we’re doing is first we’re going to put everything in the
blender. So, you know, if we put the whole orange in there and turn the machine on, it
may kind of blend it up, but t’s not really going to do it all the way, so what’s better
than that is that we need to cut this into small pieces so that the blender can actually
pulverize all of it. So, I actually recommend when putting things into the blender to do
it in the proper ordering. So, its best, when you fill up your bender, I don’t like to use
a blender or add water to a blender, which is actually in my opinion a con of blending
because you’re diluting the nutritious foods, I like to only use the fresh fruits and vegetables
in my blended or smoothie mixes. So, I don’t like to add water. Many people may have to
add water to make their blender work properly if it’s not a high power blender. So, that’s
just going to dilute the nutrition that you could be getting out of the food. So, you
can see here that we just chopped all the oranges in to little small pieces and this
way the blender is going to be able to be more effective and blend this stuff up. The
next we’re going to do is we’re going to go ahead ad chop up the cucumbers into little
pieces so the blender can blend this up as well, and yes, you can put in the seeds in
the blender. It will pulverize those as long as you have a high power blender. Now, if
you don’t have a high power blender, that seed may come out whole, you know, when you’re
drinking your blended mixture or your smoothie. Once I get all the varied liquid items into
the blender, I like to turn the blender on, and that bends it right up. The next thing
I do after I have the liquid is I’ll finally add the greens at then end. So, once again,
we’ve got 5 ounces of baby arugula greens here. I like arugula because it’s in the braska
family. The braska family plants have shown that they may contain things like cancer fighter.
They have a lot of phytonutrients and phytochemicals that can be very healthy to eat. You know,
once of my focuses on eating a healthy diet is focusing on fruits and vegetables that
have the most nutrient in them and have the least amount of calories, and this way, you
know, if you’re eating glow calories but high nutrition, you’re feeding your body everything
it needs. Most Americans eating junk food or, you know, a lot of junk food and processed
food and too many animal products that have a lot of calories but not a lot of nutrient
in them, and yes, even arugula has protein in them. I mean, think about where does a
cow get its protein? If it’s out in the range, it’s eating the grass, and that’s it get its
protein. So, we can eat these greens too, if we eat efficient quantities of them. So,
now that I’ve got the arugula added in, we got to go ahead and turn this blender on.
Alright, so we’ve got that blended up and it’s actually a lot quicker than the juicing.
So, actually let’s get into the pros of the blending, and the pro is that it’s much faster.
It’s also easier to clean because instead of a lot of parts, you just have 1 carafe
to clean, maybe your cutting board and whatnot. So, another thing I like about the blending
is that you’re going to get the whole foods. You’re going to get eh fiber and all, and
fiver, yes, definitely is important in you’re diet. Another things about the blending is
that it may reduce the detox symptoms because now you’re not just getting straight nutrition
in the body, you’re getting it mixed with some fiber and your body has to work to get
those nutrients out so that fiber is going to slow down the release of things like sugars,
if you’re blending your fruits, and actually I recommend blending your fruits but juicing
you’re vegetables. Another things that is a pro of blending is that you’re going to
use less produce. So, let’s go ahead and show you guys what this made. We got literally
a blended green smoothie, and we’re going t pour this off and this is a nice fairly
thin mixture but it’s a lot thicker ’cause it contains all the fiber, and, you know,
all the produce we used, which was 2 small cucumbers, 2 oranges, and some arugula, looks
like we got it to about right 3 cups of blended smoothies there, and if we got over to the
juice side and pour this guy out, it’s a nice thinner consistency, more like a water and
we check that out, and we don’t account for the foam on the inside, we actually got 2.5
cups. So, we’re losing a half cup, you know, because the half cup is right here inside
the fiber. So, as you can see, you use less produce to get more. So, the fiber may be
important to you to fill up. Now, another thing I want to mention quickly is that you
can do a hybrid. So, you can juice you’re vegetables, so you can make a vegetable juice,
and put in the blender, maybe blend up some fruits with it to keep the fiber in the fruit.
So, you could actually do a little bit of both, if you want. So, next let’s get into
the cons of blending. So, the cons of blending, number one, as you heard, it’s loud. It can
be loud. I mean, this blade is spinning at incredibly fast speeds, and that, you know,
can wake up your sleeping family members if you’re making your blended mixtures in the
morning. Another thing about the blending is that because its running at 27000 RPM,
80 RPM, 27000’s really really fast, and the faster it spins the faster the RPMs, the more
it’s oxidizing your food. So, if you look really closely at this, I mean, this one’s
actually a lot more oxidized, but it also fluffs it up and adds air. So, the oxidation
is basically like what happens when you scratch your car and it gets rusted. That’s the nutrients
degrading and, you know, lowering them, and besides lowering the food, it also adds air
to this mixture. So, part of the reason why this is more is because it also has air in
there, and when you’re drinking more air, guess what? You’re going to get more gas,
belching, and potentially bloating as well. Another con of blending is that if you don’t
have a high-powered blender you have to add water, and as I mentioned before, that’s diluting
the mixture down. I mean, this is just 100% nutrition from foods, and in some blenders
you may have to add a nice amount of water to make it more liquidy. So, that’s the pros
and cons of both blending and juicing. Now I’m going to get o try my delicious mixtures.
I think I’ll try the juice first. Wow, that actually tastes quite good. All you really
taste is like the orange juice. So, you taste like a little bit watered down orange juice
and you taste some greens in there, but definitely tastes really good. Now we’re going to go
for the smoothie. It’s a lot thicker. More like a really thick soup. To me, you know,
I like the juice better, but you may like the thicker mixture better than the thinner
mixture. I like it thinner, it goes down easier, you could probably juice more of it and drink
more of the juice before you got full whereas you couldn’t drink as much smoothies. So,
like I talked about in the pros and cons, if you don’t have a lot of money, maybe you
can’t buy a lot of produce, then maybe the blending is better for you but if that’s not
a concern to you, then you’re going to do what you need to do to get the nutrition in
you. I get the juicer to take out all the fiber and of course eat a big salad at night.
This is what I prefer and think is more beneficial for weight loss. As a matter of fact, here’s
a really good movie you should watch if you haven’t’ already. It’s called Fat, Sick, and
Nearly Dead. You go to hulu.com, h-u-l-u-.com and search for Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
You can watch this documentary film where a chap from Australia comes to the US and
actually lives on juices and he was fat, sick, and nearly dead, and over them if just drinking
fresh juices and nothing else, you know, he lost weight and got healthier. So, I’m confident
that you guys can do it, too. Whether you want to juice or you want to blend, both are
excellent. So, I have excess weight to lose, I would personally go with the juice and maybe
get some blended smoothies in there. The main thing you want to remember is that you want
to get away form the processed foods. Any way, in my opinion, where you can include
more fresh fruits and vegetables, whether it’s juiced, blended, or eaten in your mouth
and being chewed really well and turned into a mush, is being far better than eating any
processed foods or animals foods out there, and that’s my main message to you. So, if
you’re really into it, get a juicer, get a blender, so that you have the flexibility
of doing both. Some days I feel like only juice, some day I feel like blended, some
days I’m running late, out the door, and I got to use the blender ’cause I don’t have
time to do the juicer, but whatever the way I’m doing it, I know I’m getting the best
nutrition on earth by using these 2 appliances. I hope you guys enjoyed this episode learning
about the differences between blending and juicing. Once again, my name is John Kohler

  • What's the white blade knife, I keep seeing it. Is it better than metal blades? All the videos on all your channels are great.

  • Thanks for another great video! Currently using a blender and trying to decide on which juicer! Need the greens for gut issues and know that celery is a tough one to juice without clogging the juicer!

  • Thanks I agree with you and happen to have both the Vitamix and Omega live them both my only complaint is my Omega doesn't juice celery as easily so I juice celery with my Dash Jucer. I find I like doing both juicing and blending it depends on my mood and hunger level thanks again and Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead is an excellent

  • John, you inspire me daily! I invested in my Vitamix & PowerGrind Pro recently. My issues are mostly gas & bloating so, I assume food combining info is next. This is confusing to me… should I separate fruits from veggies? Stick to mono-juices/smoothies? Eat vs drink? Too much info but not enough clarity… help…

  • love the hybrid idea. I use my tools daily, often 2-3x… hmmm… air oxidation gas… still sense the combinations need tweaking. saw F, S, & ND… in june of 11 I used HCG over a period of time to release 40#, & am maintaining on plant-based…

  • Are you ever going to sell the Vitamix Advanced? It's the commercial grade model of the Vitamix. It's got the same features except it's now higher horsepower at 3 horsepower so it has the same horsepower as the Blendtec but the much higher 37,000 RPM of the Vitamix series. Jamba Juice uses the Vitamix Advanced and their drinks come out really good.

  • NIce video. I probably would not leave the seeds in. They may contain some different vitamins/minerals but I left the seeds in once and it was bitter. I think it was either orange or apple seeds.

  • I had the older stainless VM with reversible blades. Just can't force myself to fool with that again, esp for the cost. Juicing is so much less violent.

  • watched the movie yesterday. Wow, what an eye opener. I bought the omega VRT from you last year and really enjoy it with my garden greens. But I had not thought of doing a 30 or 60 day juice "feast" Gonna try it soon. Thanks for all your help and motivation.

  • Great video. This answers a lot of questions I had. I love my Omega juicer and you have inspired me to use it more than I have been. Thank you John.

  • i got a book written by Charlotte Gerson(the Gerson Therapy- Page:122) and she says that there are more than just one juicer that works including blenders but in the end they say that the two step juicers work the best (Norwalk…)……..Blenders takes more stuff to get the equal amount of juicer.

  • Great video. I just got a Vitamix for Christmas and it is an amazing machine. I am doing smoothies at the moment, doing a 10 day smoothie fast to start the new year, but I do want to add a good juicer to my arsenal so I can get both aspects in to my diet.

  • Juice alot of carrots, they are the least expensive vegetable to juice. I buy organic carrots at costco, they are about $5 for 10 pounds.

  • At this time, we do not have any plans to offer that model. It is significantly more expensive, and I fail to see 'that much' improvement to justify over 2x the cost.

  • The omega vrt will juice celery just fine if it is chopped into 1/8" pieces that are fed into the machine. I do it all the time.

  • I tend to juice mostly vegetables and only mix in apples or pears (and maybe lemon) for flavor. Otherwise I do not mix them. I generally only put in less than 5 ingredients at a time. I also do a fair share of mono juices.

  • Certain juicers will juice celery better than others. Each juicer has their pros and cons. If you want to juice alot of celery take a look at the green star elite or the omega 8004/8006 which does a fairly good job at it.

  • I use almost exclusively ceramic knives in my kitchen. They stay sharper than metal knives without much upkeep, and are lighter.

  • I juice Celery daily using the Omega VRT 350HD… just chop it into small pieces.. takes 2 minutes for 3 bunches… yum!

  • Rocket and Orange sounds strange, generally rocket is overpowering in flavour and I find it ruins my smoothies anytime I used it.

  • Hey John, Love your vids. Thanks so much for sharing. Love your juice off vids. Is it possible to drink too much juice in a day? I am currently drinking about 100 oz of juice a day and have a few friends concerned with my consumption. I honestly feel I could live on juices, which I pretty much do. I also include one pitcher of green smoothie a day in addition to all my juicing. Do you see any danger in this way of living? I feel amazing.

  • Juice celery & cucumbers and then use the juice for a great smoothie. Frozen bananas keep it cool, even a vitamix. Blend for just enough and it's a great smoothie. I still have a hard time figuring out what to do with pulp from my juicer. {{sigh}}

  • i have a question regarding dehydrating some site suggest setting the temp to 140 for the first 3 hrs then turning it down to 115 for the remaining time. anyone want to chine in on this?

  • so someone ill should choose the juices, but is it ok to drink only juice and no solid food, is it better in order to get better? Thanks.

  • please consult your doctor for medical advise. If I had some kind of issue, I would be fine with only juicing.

  • Yes, when initially dehydrating there is high water content in the foods, which will prevent the temperature from being too hot, and this will speed up your overall dehydration time.

  • I personally drink 100 ounces of juice most days and also eat other things. If it were me, I don't have a problem with it, but I would go to fitday*com to see the nutrition and calories that is being consumed to ensure it is enough. I would also tend to drink more vegetable than fruit juices.

  • I actually prefer blending to juicing.. I had a juicer, but got rid of it after I got my vitamix. I like only having to blend for 45 seconds as opposed to doing all the chopping, several minutes of juicing, and several minutes of cleaning from juicing.. Either way is a good choice.

  • Thanks for the good info John, I have had a Nutribullet for about 3 mo. now and I just got a centrifugal Juicer today (Hamilton Beach). I am hoping to be able to combine the 2 because I can't stand the cucumber and carrot pulp from the nutribullet but plan on juicing harsh things with thick skin but use the nutribullet for the greens and soft fruits. I think all that pulp is wasteful. I need the fiber! 🙂 Anyway, Love your videos

  • cool video, i cant afford a juicer so i was really curious and you explained everything man. grateful for this thanks a lot 🙂

  • This seriously just answered everything I've been thinking! I finally talked my dad into passing me his vitamix – I made ALL my baby food 4 years ago with my youngest – and have had cheapy blenders though-out the years — I do a lot of smoothies, but a lot of them call for yogurt – I am definitely looking into getting a juicer – as they both are beneficial!! Thanks!

  • OMG John I didn't even know you had this channel!! I have been watching your gardening channel forever. I found this through rawKristina (is that right hahaha) very awesome!!

  • I have a Health Master, I used it tonight, it made an exceptional smoothy. I used 1 whole carrot, 8 white grapes, 1 pear, 3 crowns of broccoli, one pink lady apple, 3 strawberries, and 1 stalk of celery. Man was that good.

  • Thanks for the info.  This video answered a lot of my questions about the differences between juicers and blenders. 

  • hey john…thx for the excellent breakdown on juicing vs blending…i actually have both….my question is about the vitamix….what is a good way to strain the juice to separate the fiber? thx …

  • Just because something is not in a "liquid state" doesn't mean it won't get absorbed. Many of the difficult-to-extract polyphenols and other phytonutrients tied up in plant fiber are ultimately freed up by the microflora in our intestines, where they are then absorbed by the body. This is how many of the benefits from legumes and plant carotenoids are obtained. That's why I prefer blending as it retains much more of the nutrient-rich fiber. Our physiology has been honed over countless generations to handle whole foods, so is it any surprise that our bodies can benefit so much from (insoluble) fiber?

  • The juicer takes the fiber away from the juice which is bad. You lose more of the nutrients that way. I totally prefer the blending because the integrity of the nutrient is kept in tact.  

  • I believe blending is a much better way for a healthier life as you retain that fiber. Also, if you have a low powered blender and use water, it is totally fine. Yes you dilute the actual stuff, but you body still gets every bit of the nutritious value from the smoothie that you do without using the water as this is processed in the small intestine. I think the guy has a mentality that the more expensive a product is, the better it is. Yes, that is true to a degree, but in some products, you are paying for the brand. You can get some starbucks coffee and another coffee from another company and they each taste great, yet the starbucks is priced higher.

  • What about the best thing to blend or juice?  By far it's wine.  Blending or juicing wine makes it taste much better.  Give it a try and see for yourself.

  • I agree with him. I've done all the experiments both blending and juicing. Juicing all the way for me as fibre is only good for bowel movement. I can get the fibre from other nutrients like Chia seeds etc. Blending also gives me bloating effect as my body cannot digest fibres very quickly. But then everyone is different.

  • Just add very cold  purified water to the vitamix smoothie, Thinning it out and making it more of a juice consistency.  I

  • to drink the oxidised fruits, doesn't that beat the purpose of being nutritious and healthy? I like the fibre, but I think if I need fibre I can eat some solid fruits. If the juice/smoothie going to have lower nutrition value. why am I drinking it? some opinion please?

  • I have a Vitamix since 2007 and I love it!! No matter how loud it gets, and wakes up the neighborhood I will always love my VitaMix!

  • blending all the way its quick healthy and fits in with our busy lifestyles my juicer just collects dust now.
