Despite its incredible versatility, a juicer has its limits, just like any other kitchen tool. Certain types of fruits won’t benefit from being juiced and they don’t belong anywhere near your juicer, and that happens to be the case with these five.

Whole Apples

Apples can be juiced, but it’s recommended to cut them into smaller pieces before doing so. In addition to putting less pressure on your juicer, cutting apples allows you to get rid of their seeds.


The tricky thing about bananas is that they don’t contain enough juice, so it’s a better idea to blend them because juicing them won’t do this fruit any favors.


Avocados shouldn’t be juiced for the same reason as bananas, because they don’t contain a lot of juice, and the best way to transform them into a tasty beverage is to blend them.


You can technically juice pears, but this is not the best way to consume them. Juicing them could potently lead to quick bowel movements due to sorbitol, a non-digestible form of sugar that they may release.


Pineapple is another fruit that can technically be juiced, but it’s not extremely healthy when consumed this way because it will be stripped of its healthy vitamins and fiber.
