Fruit is much better as fruit.

Liquidising fruit breaks down the cells and releases the sugars. These now digest very much faster, giving you a sugar rush and disrupting your sugar control system.
After a sugar high you get a low as the insulin levels over compensate.

This increase your chances of developing diabetes.
