– High-speed blender, such as Vitamix.

Here's What You Do
Have all of your ingredients well chilled.
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, starting on the slowest speed and gradually working up to the fastest. Blend on the highest speed until the mixture is uniformly smooth and the sound of the blender is high pitched and steady.
Reduce the speed of the blender to the lowest setting before turning it off.
Drink immediately, or refrigerate for up to 4 hours in a tightly closed container. Shake before serving.
Here's What You Need
2 to 3 cups (depending on desired thickness) fresh young coconut water (from 2 to 3 young coconuts), or store-bought raw coconut water
½ pineapple (about 12 ounces), leaves and rind removed, cored and cut in chunks
2 to 3 blood oranges (or juice oranges), peeled, seeded, and cut in chunks
2 cups fresh strawberries, with greens (I never remove the greens from strawberries, provided they are fresh and firm. Strawberry leaf is said to relieve gastrointestinal problems and joint pain.)
