When I did the nutrition course with Maggie's Wallace, we covered smoothies and juicing, and my takeaway was that fruit or vegetable smoothies which retain the fibre are better than not eating the veg/fruit at all but probably no better than eating them in the normal way.  Not retaining the fibre increases the GI, and is almost always worse unless you are in a situation where digesting fibre is hard.  We were also told to aim for 9 portions of fruit/veg a day rather than just 5. 

Recently I've been struggling even to get to 5, so I have caved and bought a "family blender" from Breville today.  It helpfully converts the blending container into a flip-top bottle, and provides 4 of them.

I am now consuming a rather chewy and slightly dubious-looking green smoothie, which makes me think of Tony Stark in Iron Man 2.  It tastes good though, and I am definitely hitting my nine portions today, for the first time in ages.
