Someone said :
It's ok. I dont use those ingredients because I like them, I use them to get veg into me.
Are whole fruits/veg better than home-made smoothies?
Marginally better, yes.
As a rule, the more processed a food is the less healthy it becomes.
You're gonna lose some vitamins and other good stuff, and in the case of fruits, juicing them and turning them into smoothies means your body will absorb them much quicker.
This can raise your blood sugar and also in liquid form they won't fill you up like they would otherwise, since they will be digested much quicker.
Foods that are apparently the same can have very different effects in your body. For example, pitta bread has a lower glycemic index than white bread, though the ingredients are the same.
Because the pitta bread is flat and compact, it is digested slowly, unlike plain white bread.
