Juice vs Smoothie: What’s the difference?

August 13, 2015 2 min read

While juices and smoothies are both amazing ways to get nutrients into our bodies, there are some distinct differences between the two. Understanding what they can offer will help you to know when it is best to have one or the other. green-smoothies-1 Juices are made with juicers, where smoothies are made with blenders. The juicing process removes the fibre from the fruits and veggies, where as in smoothies the fibre is kept and adds bulk. Removing the fibre, allows the precious nutrients from the fruits and veggies to enter the bloodstream quickly, giving you an instant infusion of vitamins, minerals, living enzymes and other phytonutrients. While on a cleanse, a juice can act as a meal, however most people wouldn’t be satisfied with just a juice. Because of the lack of fibre, they pass through you quickly and are better suited as a snack between meals or first thing in the morning before breakfast. A smoothie on the other hand, is much more filling and takes longer to digest and acts as a meal. The fibre of the vegetables plus healthy fats and proteins actually makes smoothies the ideal breakfast for a busy person! They can also act as a snack if you have to go a long time between meals. Smoothies are great because they contain the whole food and provide an opportunity to sneak a few extra nutrients in by adding green veggies and superfood powders like spirulina or maca. The blending process of smoothies hides the taste of more unpleasant ingredients, making them easier to consume. There are lots of yummy juice and smoothie recipes online so test drive a few or get busy creating your own concoctions to taste. Have fun with it!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
