I call it juicing. But it's really blending on my part like a smoothie. Since I put nuts in it and blend it to a fine blend.


That's what I had in mind too.. Saw a blender specifically for this at Wally World. Reckon I'll be trying one soon \:\)

My cousin is a juicing phenom. I may need to get with her and learn. She has a blog about it. It's HoldingHerOwn.com

This is a blog excerpt that explains the difference.
Juicer vs. Blender: What’s the Difference Between Juicing and Smoothies?
I’ve gotten this question so much, and quite frankly there’s so much varied information on the subject, that I decided to dedicate a post to the difference between juicing and blending. Often people ask, “If I want to start juicing, why can’t I just use my Vitamix?” (or Nutribullet, or Ninja, or other blender of choice). The short answer is because juicing and blending are two totally different processes. It’s like comparing apples…and err…well, not even oranges. It’s more like comparing apples and kale. While both have their place, juicing is literally the single most important thing you can do for your health and to prevent disease. (Not to mention changing the way you look and feel!) Let’s take a look.



In the next couple of weeks, I’d like to share a couple of different perspectives on the subject. For today’s post, I absolutely love the following explanation from Gena at choosingraw.com (so insightful and right on point!):

The purpose of juicing is to extract as much nutrition from vegetables as possible without activating digestion; that is, you’re enjoying a flood of nutrition without fiber. Isn’t fiber good for us, you’re thinking? Yes it is, and if you’re eating a plant-based diet, you’re getting plenty of it! Juicing enthusiasts don’t argue that fiber is harmful; they simply think that there are times when it’s desirable to get a rich flood of nutrition without the fiber. For example, people with very sensitive digestive systems often find it a relief to be able to snack on what is the equivalent of several cups of vegetables without having to stress about whether or not the high fiber content will be irritating.

The second way in which juicing and blending differ is volume. Unless you’ve got a tremendous appetite, you can’t eat all the produce that goes into a single serving of veggie juice several times a day! An average juice (for me) includes an apple, five large kale leaves, 1/2 a bunch of parsley, a large cucumber, eight large stalks of celery, and a knob of ginger. Or it might involve eight carrots, a beet, 1/2 a bunch of kale, an apple, a head of romaine, and eight stalks of celery. Get the idea? I could never devour that many veggies all at once, but I can juice them. Blending them would still allow me to consume a lot of vegetables more easily, but it wouldn’t be quite as efficient as juicing.

As you can see from my last post, I love blended salads, and consume them often. And now that summer’s here, you can bet I’m looking forward to plenty of fruit smoothies and coconut shakes, too! But they’re a different entity entirely from juice; I enjoy them both, and look to them for different reasons.

As for the blood sugar spike, that’s a reasonable concern. Juice that’s all apple or all carrot will give you a sugar rush or make you lightheaded: this is why it’s important to mix beets, carrots, and apples with a less sweet vegetables and greens. But properly made, juice should be high enough in celery, cucumber, greens, lemon, and other veggies to outweigh the sugar in apples or carrots (sugars that are, by the way, are perfectly suitable in reasonable amounts). And of course, I do not recommend juicing as meal replacement, which is where the real danger of blood sugar elevation lies.

If you have diabetes or a blood sugar imbalance you’ll want to speak with your doctor before you begin juicing frequently.

Bottom line? To compare blending and juicing is a bit like trying to evaluate the relative merits of yoga and marathon running. They’re comparable in that they’re both a form of exercise, but that’s pretty much where the comparison ends; juicing and blending are both a form of nutritional intake, but they’re as different as can be.

Kale
Carrots

Just some of the things I use




Get rid of almond milk unless you make it yourself from organic almonds.

I do my mixes in propur filtered water. All your fruits and veggies should be organic as well. Pesticides are not good for us.
