Though juicing is incredible and delivers nutrition in a fast and efficient way, there are other ways to get similar benefits. As suggested, one of the main benefits of juicing is digestibility. Having to digest tremendous amounts of fiber can be difficult for some people. Having a salad is one thing, but having to digest pounds of vegetables at one sitting is another. Juicing, for many, allows this because the "digestive hold up" is removed leaving just the nutrient dense "water" or juice of the vegetable. This lets you take in far more nutrition at one time. With this understanding, using a blender can allow some of the same benefits. When we blend vegetables or fruit, especially in a high speed blender, we increase the ability to extract nutrients from it as well as digest it more easily. Liquifying our food, for the most part, makes it easier to utilize. When we eat raw vegetables for example, we liquify it through our chewing. This, however, is not always the case. Some of it might not be chewed completely, which leaves some of the cell walls of the vegetable unbroken. As a result, less nutrition is exposed as it is exited as fiber. When we blend, or chew our food really well, we increase the nutrient availability of the food and also make digestion easier. In this way, we don't have the same texture of "harsh" fiber moving around in our stomach. It is broken down into a much smaller and easier to digest state. This makes consuming high amounts of green vegetables a lot easier even though they have a lot of fiber that can sometimes be difficult to digest. Blending, especially if you don't have a juicer or don't want to deal with cleaning it, can make a big difference in what you extract from the food you eat and how easy it is to digest.
Still, interestingly, many health educators recommend "chewing" juices and smoothies to ensure it is digested well. This is opposed to just drinking it quickly like water. Using a high speed blender, though, can turn blended drinks into juice like consistency even though it contains all the fiber. You can still strain out the fiber if you want to obtain the "fiber-free" aspect of juicing.
