I'd be interested in Susan's opinion on this also - I've read differing opinions, too.
As for myself, I imagine the green smoothie wouldn't spike your blood sugar like a green juice might.
If you're making a green smoothie, you're also getting the fiber (since everything is going into the drink and nothing is being extracted out of it).
If you run the greens through a juicer, you'd be removing the fiber, so I can see how that could spike your blood sugar.
Then again, I'm not an expert - I just enjoy tasty food and drinks
