For people with busy schedules, juices and smoothies are an easy way to sneak in a day’s serving of fruits and vegetables as well as essential nutrients without taking time of the schedule to cook complicated meals. They are easy to prepare and can be consumed on the go, making them especially ideal for professionals.
The major difference between blending and juicing is that blending simply purees the fruits or vegetables while juicing removes the pulp and fibers and leaves behind only the juice. Many blenders are not able to juice and vice versa, but many people would like to get the benefits of both without having to spend money on separate machines or having to clutter up their kitchen with multiple machines.
For these people, it is worth investigating the various products on the market that are capable of both juicing and blending. The specification details of five of the best combination juicer and blenders are discussed in this article, along with additional features that make each of them unique.
