Juicer Test Kitchen Insider Tip: Feel free to use either the white or fuscia-fleshed pitaya, as they both have the same smooth-moving properties. I find the yellow-skinned, white-fleshed variety a bit sweeter, but they all taste pretty similar.
The Details: Smooth Movin’
Pitaya, otherwise known as Dragon Fruit, leads the colon-cleansing charge with its trifecta of constipation-clobbering components. First, it contains oligosaccharides, which act as a prebiotic that stimulates the microbiota in the colon, thought to improve intestinal mobility. Pitaya is chocked full of dietary fiber that helps promote healthy stool formation and movement. Last but not least, dragon fruit contains magnesium, which is known to help with bowel movement by increasing water in the intestines.
Pineapple also has significant amounts of fiber (both soluble and nonsoluble) and bromelain. This enzyme helps break down food in our system faster, especially protein, thus helping with the digestion and elimination process.
Tangerines are a tasty way to increase hydration and fiber, aiding bowel movement. They’re also a great source of vitamin C, which low levels of have been linked to constipation.
Raspberries bring more of that wonderful fiber that we know helps you poop. Plus, it’s a delicious addition to this already tasty juice!

The Juicer: Kuvings REVO830
I made the Tropical Transport using the Kuvings REVO830 juicer. Make amazing fresh juice and so much more!
The Kuvings REVO830 has revolutionized the juicing world thanks to its dual-feed produce hopper. This design significantly reduces prep time by removing the need to chop most ingredients. The vertical cut chute handles long produce whole, like cukes, chard, and celery. The 3.5″ wide auto-cut hopper handles larger produce like oranges, apples, and beets with minimal chopping.
The REVO830 supports this no-chopping convenience with a powerful upgraded motor, which is both super quiet and lets you run non-stop for up to 45 minutes. It not only makes awesome juice, but it also does nice cream, nut milk, sorbets, and smoothies!
Backed by an astounding 15-year warranty, I highly recommend the Kuvings REVO830 for any home juicer. I use it a lot in my own juice-feasting journey and know you’ll love it, too!
