In our business, we often encounter the fact that many do not know the difference between a juicer, smoothie maker, or blender.
This is not surprising given how some companies are promoting their blenders as excellent juicers.
Let’s see what the differences are …
What is juicing? Juicing is simply separating juice from the fiber in fruit and vegetables. The result is a concentrated nutrient that is easily digested. Our body can absorb up to 4 times the vitamin in the juice compared to the whole fruit we eat. This also depends on the type of raw material as well as on the way of squeezing. Juicing is excellent as an energy bomb or for boosting the immune system.
What is blending? Blending is a mixture of fruits, vegetables or other ingredients at high speeds with the use of liquid. You get a smoothie, a very healthy drink or a meal that makes you full-fed.
The advantage of blending is in a wide variety of raw vegetables and fruits. You can add various things like banana, nuts, yogurt, seeds, etc. to prepare an ideal meal.
What does that mean? A juicer will not make juice of yogurt or seeds, so no blender will make a juice of fruits or vegetables. But both juices and smoothies have their advantages. It depends on what your body needs in a given situation.

Consider fresh juice as medicine and smoothie as a healthy meal
We have already discussed the differences between juicing and blending. What are the differences between juice and smoothie?
- enables quick action of “injections” of vitamins and nutrients
- is effective against fatigue
- boosts the immune system
- can improve the mood
- revitalizes the organism at the cellular level
- a healthy snack that can replace the meal
- excellent breakfast “on the go”
- supplies us with fibers
- is ideal before and after training
So which is the best? Juicer, smoothie maker, or blender?
The best option is the one you will most use. It depends on your goals and lifestyle.
Fresh juice is the best way to treat your body, it’s fast nutrition that strengthens our immune system. Just remember that juices are just a supplement to a regular diet. They can not replace the basic diet unless you are in the process of cleaning the body/diet via juices.
For maximum absorption of vitamins, it is best to drink at least 15 minutes before meals or 2 hours after meals. We believe that cold cuttings are the most effective juice extractors to extract large amounts of juice as well as to obtain the highest levels of nutrition. These are universal appliances that are effective in everything from fruits to hard and leafy vegetables.

A good blender is the best choice for those who want a smoothie for the whole family or those who need the power and blend’s ability to mix.
There is a big difference between blenders sold in household appliances stores and quality appliances such as NutriBullet or Hamilton. A quality blender will mix almost everything from a smoothie to butter and soup. And the new generation of vacuum blenders from Tribest has changed the game to make a smoothie. The absence of oxidation dramatically reduced the loss of nutrients.
