Juicing is a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. Fruit juice is filled with vitamins and minerals that are essential to a healthy life. But, even the healthiest types of juice should avoid certain ingredients for the best results. If you’re making homemade fruit juices, it’s important to know what fruits cannot be juiced.

Not Sustainable for Juicing

Sometimes it comes down to logistics; if you’re looking to fill a cool glass with fruit juice, you need fruits that have plenty of juice in them! Otherwise, you’ll just be wasting that fruit and not getting your desired results. Here are some fruits that shouldn’t be juiced simply because they don’t have a lot of juice:

  • Avocados

Great for adding fiber and a silky consistency to smoothies, avocados won’t offer much to juicing enthusiasts. The texture of this fruit – yes! technically a fruit – just isn’t compatible with juicing.

  • Coconut

Though the coconut water from coconuts is popular to drink, coconuts themselves cannot be juiced. They would destroy and juicer or blender you tried to put them in and to extract coconut water, you do not need to juice the fruit anyways.

  • Bananas

Again, great for smoothies but not great for juices.

Juicing Can Destroy Nutrients in Some Fruits

Sometimes, juicing or blending fruit can remove all of its benefits. The process can pull vitamins and fiber away from the fruit itself, making it less healthy to consume in a juice. If you want the benefits of these fruits, stick to eating them whole:

  • Pineapples
  • Pears
