As far as I know, smoothies are better than juices for your digestion in general, since you still get fibres.
I suffer from the severe fatigue that can come from MS, as well as anxiety caused by my medication and the divorce that has been dragging out since my diagnosis. And from my experience vegetables have very powerful anti-inflammatory benefits so this can help reduce systemic inflammation.
I used to work at a juice stand in high school making different flavors of drinks. We used two bases for the drinks, either apples or carrots as the major "juice" ingredients. Both provide a good taste. With a juicer
, I suggest you put whatever you want through first, then the apple or carrot in last, as they clean and push the other ingredients through with their higher water content.
To change just juice to smoothie I'd suggest you find something with enough water to support what you are doing. "Smoothie" implies it is smooth meaning thicker then just juice, but slides along the tongue and palate. You are going to have a harder time finding veggies that can do that without having a fibrous texture.
Some we used to do (keep in mind all juice):
Apple, carrot. The king of easy.
Carrot, apple, parsley, ginger.
Carrot, celery, broccoli, spinach, beet.
Apple, orange (these two juiced) blueberry, strawberry , banana (blended with juice).
Possibilities are endless.
Strongly agree. Don't be afraid to experiment with greens, since you might like come unusual recipes. Personally, I like to add a pineapple to my green smoothies (no shame!).
1 frozen banana
1 handful of kale
2 huge handfuls of spinach
pinch of fresh sprouts
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
You can add come coconut water (or ice) to liquify.
That's healthy and delicious.
