Why Homemade Juices and Smoothies are Better

There is no debate when it comes to homemade healthy drinks being played against processed ones. The nutrients that homemade drinks pack is way too much for processed drinks to hold a candle to—the following reason why homemade drinks are better.

  • They do not contain any preservatives. Homemade juices are made from fresh ingredients straight from the farm. Therefore they pack more nutrients, and there is no risk of being exposed to harmful chemicals.
  • They have more fiber, which is vital for digestion. When you crush fruits and vegetables to create a healthy drink, the fiber is broken into smaller sizes that increase their effectiveness compared to consuming them whole.
  • They pack more antioxidants. Fresh berries and red beets contain the highest levels of antioxidants when they are fresh off the farm. The longer they stay, the faster they deteriorate. Therefore, you reap more when consuming them in juice form when they are still fresh.
  • They are much cheaper to make. You can buy the ingredients from the market or if you have your own garden you can do away with using any money entirely.

When you choose to go down this route, you must take the necessary precautions to avoid contaminating the drinks you make. There is nothing nastier than a contaminated homemade drink; it could send you to the hospital. Ensure you use clean ingredients and, most importantly, ensure you have bottles for the juices and mason jars for smoothie drinks. If there is any leftover, make sure you store them in the refrigerator for preservation.
