Best Blenders For Juicing: 2018 Reviews

I remember when I got my first blender, I ate nothing else but smoothies for weeks. I got so addicted to my new smoothie-maker that I’d even carry it with me to the office, or even to a friends’ place once! After some time I got back to eating normal food too, but I kept using it almost every morning. It’s a simple and amazing way to add more nutrients to my diet that are so easy (and tasty) for the body to absorb.

Juicing Vs Blending?

There’s a difference between both. The main one is that a regular juicer would extract the fluids from the fruits and veggies (in huge amount water) and throw out the remains, like fiber and other indigestible parts of food. Unlike juicers, what you’ll get when using a blender is a drink (smoothie) thicker in texture. One of the good thing about them is that they manage to break even the fiber, that a regular juicer would simply dispose.

Except smoothies, you can also use it for preparing juices all you have to do is cut the fruits and/or veggies in small pieces, and blend a little bit longer than you’d usually blend the food in order to get a smoothie.

Benefits:

First of all, the drink you’d get when using one is much more satisfying and filling, but there are number of other perks in using one:

  • Your body absorbs the sugar from the fruits slower because of the fiber left in the smoothie. It can be compared to the effect you’d get when eating whole fruits.
  • You can add other stuff, not only fruits and veggies to your drink, like supplements and superfoods. Like chia seeds or coconut oil that you wouldn’t usually add to your juices.
  • They are easier to clean than regular juicers. Sometimes, all you have to do, after blending is running the cup under water while it’s still fresh.
  • Smoothies are loved by the whole family, even by kids, especially if you add some cocoa. They’re a great way to make sure your children are getting all the nutrients they need.
  • They can be used for other things too, not only smoothies. You can use them to make soups, pasta sauces, salad dressings, etc.
