But not every fruit is appropriate for juicing. While bananas are often thought to be the king of fruits when it comes to daily servings, according to some experts, they aren't the healthiest choice. Here's a closer look at five fruits you should avoid when juicing.

One of the least healthy options you have for a fruit, both in the glass and in a meal, is banana. While banana has a delicious taste, its nutritional facts aren't particularly impressive-it's relatively low in potassium and have only a modest amount of vitamin C. Plus, its moderate levels of fructose and glucose to make it hard for your body to use the sugar it contains for energy.

If you're looking for a delicious meal option, try a strawberry and green tea smoothie. The flavor combinations in this juice will have your taste buds begging for more.

Finally, it contains no fat and contains no trans fats, so it's cholesterol-free.

Mango and pineapple smoothies are fruity and tasty. The mango, a rich, spicy fruit, is a great energy booster and will help fight aging. Pair mango and pineapple smoothie with some fresh lime juice or some raw papaya juice to quench your thirst.

For a cool summer treat, make fresh orange juice and frozen guava smoothies. These smoothies are packed with vitamin C and are loaded with beta carotene, which is an important source of vitamin A. Guava and orange smoothies also contain potassium, another important mineral that helps maintain normal electrolyte levels.

If you'd rather go natural and not worry about the synthetic chemicals found in commercial apples, bananas, or guava juices, try peach and pear smoothie recipes. Made with peach juice, pear juice, and apple cider vinegar, this drink will refresh you and tastes much like a traditional smoothie. To make it more interesting, add some fresh berries (peachy pink is best), some banana slices, and pure maple syrup. Freeze the mixture and serve in portions small enough for everyone to take a big gulp. The nutritional benefits of this beverage to make it worth the extra effort. To make it even tastier, add some honey.

If you like the taste of bananas but don't like the high amount of calories that the fruit may have, try making a banana and mixed berry juice. This juice is very similar to the consistency of banana. Add some sliced bananas, ripe mangoes, and honey to make a delectable fruit smoothie. You can use the smoothie in place of traditional fruit smoothies or mix it with orange juice instead. Add some fresh strawberries or blueberries for a boost of sugary flavor.

If you're not into banana or blueberries, or maybe you don't like the taste of the nonfat plain yogurt, raspberries, or ice, try making a strawberry and banana hybrid called strawberry-banana hybrid. Blend strawberries, bananas, and nonfat plain yogurt, then drizzle with some melted vegan margarine or semi-frosted vegan cake mix before serving. This juice is great as a snack or for dessert, or even as an addition to recipes. You can add frozen blueberries or strawberries to the mix for a delicious berry smoothie, or you could add some frozen strawberries to a bowl of soup or stew to get a nice creamy flavor. Make sure to add plenty of water so the mixture stays smooth and does not curdle, and enjoy!
