Q & A with Andrew Cooper
Q: Why is juicing supposedly more effective for nutrient absorption than actually eating the solid fruit and vegetables?
A: It's not; it is just a much easier and quicker way to get nutrients into your body. If you want to get the best results, it is important to incorporate a fat into your juices, whether it's a teaspoon of coconut oil or hemp oil, half an avocado or just some raw nuts. Juicing is a way to support a healthier lifestyle, not a way to replace eating.
Q: Can I really get full from a juice?
A: Absolutely, if it's a dense green one. One of the key things is to chew your juice and take your time. This way your body accepts it as food and it's easier to digest. Due to the lack of fiber in a juice, a smoothie will be a more filling option.
Q: Is it safe to juice every day?
A: There are no doubt many opinions on this, but my view is yes, definitely. I think everyone is different and nutritional needs will vary. I have juiced every day for over ten years and believe it's the reason why I feel strong and healthy. You should vary what you juice and support it with a healthful diet and exercise. It is definitely not a wonder cure, but it's a healthy habit that provides great nutritional benefits.
This smoothie is a great energy-boosting way to start the day. Organic strawberries are hard to find all year-round, so to enjoy this healthy milkshake any time of the year, keep lots of them in the freezer. Feel free to add a date or two for extra fiber and sweetness. Top with hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds and bee pollen.
Put all the ingredients into a blender in the order they are listed. Blitz until smooth. Serve immediately.
This makes a great protein shake by adding 1 tbsp of protein powder of your choice. You can turn this into a chocolate milkshake by replacing the strawberries with 1 tbsp of cacao powder, or a banana milkshake by replacing the strawberries with an extra banana (fresh or frozen).
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 an avocado, peeled and pitted
- 1/2 a lime, peeled
- 1 1/3 cups almond or other nut milk, or milk of your choice
- 1 tbsp nut butter
- 2 handfuls of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 dashes of vanilla extract
