Holy Ripe Bananas, Batman!

Bananas fall into the "unjuicable" category of produce.   I have read that they make a mess and clog a juicer because of their soft, non-juicy texture.  Other unjuicables include avocados, coconut and (for some juicers) mangos.

Today, my daughters and I made a Sunday-fruit-juice-special, and then added half the juice to the blender where I had previously pureed two ripe bananas.  After blending it all together the final product was thick and smooth, like, well, a smoothie.  My husband, who likes all banana flavors (natural and artificial), went ape for this juice.  I thought the banana flavor paired well with fruit juice, but I think I'm more of a veggie juice girl after all.

1/4 watermelon
1 large tomato
8 strawberries
1/3 fresh pineapple

blend above juice with 2 pureed bananas, though the juice can stand alone.
This is your juice.

This is your juice on bananas.
