i experimented with my blendtec this weekend and the results were quite delicious. as per usual, i scrounged what we had left as far as produce went and threw it all together to create this juice (which as so many ingredients, it was difficult to name.. i should really try to make juices with 2-5 ingredients, to keep it simple, but i never end up doing that. i want everything! can you blame me?)
now, if you don't have a blendtec (which you might consider since it basically replaces most kitchen appliances) you could juice the ingredients and then add the banana and pears in later with a blender, since they are hard to process. you also could skip the coconut water, since you would already have juice as your liquid.
