as number three.
You'll see me drinking a lot more Bolthouse than anything else though. It's substantially cheaper!
The big difference between home-made smoothies and juices and store-bought is that store-bought products have to be pastuerized and are usually exposed to high temperatures to do so. So, you're not getting raw food.
I also don't think soy is healthy. It may be, but there are better alternatives - rice, almond, coconut and hemp milks. Why use soy? Better still, homemade coconut or almond milk made in a Vitamix. I'd consider any packaged milk substitute to be a processed food. At the very least, make sure it's USDA organic. Otherwise, you don't what's in there. Not everything has to be on the label.
