What is the difference between a juicer and a smoothie maker?

I’ve just been given a kenwood smoothie junior maker for my birthday and I’ve been making smoothies without any problems, but now I want to try making some juices.

In particular, I want to make carrot juice, but I’m worried that my smoothie maker won’t be able to process the carrots. (ie too fragile or not enough power) so, is there any difference between a smoothie maker and a juicer?

Is it OK to Make a Protein Shake with Hot Water?

protein shakeI always use cold water with my protein shake but it tastes disgusting and it tastes so much better if its hot water.  Is it OK if I use hot water or I should keep using cold water?

Do You Like Your Protein Shake Cold or Warm?

The guy who asked this question about his Protein Shake on Yahoo! Answers seemed to like his hot.  I’ve always been a big fan of cold water for my shakes.

The consensus of the online community seems to be that there is no major affect on the power of the protein in a protein shake, no matter if it is made with hot or cold water, so long as it is consumed within an hour or two of mixing.  The one exception to this may be using boiling water.

Let me know how you like your protein shake by leaving a comment below.

A Smoothie a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Healthy Green Smoothie with a Protein Kick

A recent visit to my doctor ended with a prescription to ‘lose some weight and eat better’. Along with a suggestion to cut out some carbohydrates, the doctor wanted me to add more protein to my diet.

So when I can across this recipe on Yahoo (credited to Lily Kunin of Clean Food Dirty City), I figured it would be a good share for SmoothieRecipe.TV.  She dubbed it the Morning Warrior Smoothie Bowl.

Morning Warrior Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango (optional)
  • 2 handfuls of greens (kale, spinach, romaine, etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons hemp protein
  • 1 tablespoon soaked flax seeds
  • Small piece of ginger
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Dash turmeric

Preparation:

  1. Pour coconut water and lemon juice to a blender
  2. With blender on high, add all remaining ingredients.
  3. Drink as-is, or pour in a bowl and top with blueberries or other fresh fruit.
