Fruit Juice Smoothie Require a Juicer?

fruit juice smoothieDo You Need a Juicer to Make a Fruit Juice Smoothie?

I want to get in the habit of making my own fruit juice smoothie at home but I don’t have a juicer nor do I know anything about purchasing one.   Is there any way to make a fruit juice smoothie without a juicer?

A Fruit Juice Smoothie Doesn’t Need a Juicer

The answer to this one is simple.  No.

You can use a juicer to make juice, especially specialty juices.  Think things like carrot juice, beet juice, cabbage juice, etc.  Juicers do a great job of extracting the juice from what might otherwise be considered “non-juicy” vegetables.

But if you are looking to make a Fruit Juice Smoothie, all you need is:

  • Fruit juice — you can use canned, frozen, or fresh squeezed
  • A base — normally ice cream, yogurt, frozen bananas, or frozen yogurt
  • Ice cubes — alternatively, you could freeze the fruit juice into cubes

Blend the ingredients in a blender, and you should be good to go!

vanilla smoothie without ice creamEveryone knows how delicious a vanilla smoothie is, but enjoying a vanilla smoothie without ice cream can have all the taste without the sugary calories that most ice cream contains.  The secret to making this taste great, whether it’s a vanilla smoothie without ice cream or one with it, is the vanilla.

Vanilla Smoothie Without Ice Cream

½ cup fresh orange juice
1 cup milk

Facts to Help Spice Up Your Vanilla Smoothie

Vanilla Beans

Vanilla is really delicious. Whenever I have my choice of flavors in ice cream or cake, I choose vanilla. It is my favorite flavor. Yummy!

Everyone knows that vanilla tastes great, but do you also know that vanilla flavoring comes from orchids? Although it is native to Mexico, it can grow throughout the tropics. It grows on a vine and climbs up a tree, pole or other support. It is often found growing in the woods but is also grown on plantations.

Vanilla Extract

Do you know that vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron? It may surprise you, but some shops sell vanilla beans for $2 to $3 each. That may sound expensive, but the beans are of very high quality. Remember, pure vanilla extract has no sugar added and the delicious vanilla smell will last forever. If someone offers you vanilla extract at a cheaper price, you should think twice. The less expensive extracts can be adulterated and not as high of quality. Be careful that you get what you really want!

Types of Vanilla Extract

Organic Vanilla Extract

If you love vanilla as much as I do, you may curious about the different types of vanilla extract. Bourbon vanilla or Bourbon-Madagascar vanilla is a particular type of vanilla plant cultivated on Madagascar and Reunion Island, also known as the “Bourbon” Islands. Bourbon vanilla beans are most commonly used for the vanilla extract you find at the supermarket. Mexican vanilla is the king of vanilla extracts. Tahitian vanilla is a more rare type of vanilla, but its known for its fruity aroma. West Indian Vanilla is a vine forb/herb.

Growing Vanilla

The best vanilla is grown under the best conditions. It will grow better in a hot, humid climate. For healthy vines, moderate rainfall is best.

Health Benefits of Vanilla

Another surprising thing about vanilla is that it is a healthy choice. It can help to reduce fevers. Vanilla also increases the levels of catecholamines, including adrenaline. It has been shown to be able to block quorum sensing in bacteria, so it aids the immune system. It has also been described as an aphrodisiac.

Vanilla can also be used as a sweet treat when you’re trying to lose weight. Diet pills may seem like a quick way to lose those extra pounds, but exercising and eating better is the healthier way to shed extra weight.

If you are craving something sweet to drink, instead of drinking high calorie sodas or soft drinks, try a vanilla smoothie without ice cream.

Knowing its benefits, there’s no reason to feel guilty about indulging in healthy vanilla treats. A delicious and healthy choice is a Vanilla Smoothie without ice cream!
