Banana Juice is an item in Donkey Kong Country Returns and it's 3DS version. Drinking it protects Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong by giving them ten extra hits. It can be purchased at Cranky's Shop for twenty Banana Coins (7 coins in the 3DS remake) and it can only be used once. When drunk, it gives Diddy and Donkey ten extra hearts. These hearts are shown as a number on the HUD and can be lost just as easily as normal hearts. The Kongs will turn golden after drinking Banana Juice, but will start turning back to normal color after a few hits. Falling in pits or getting hit in rocket barrels or carts will still be instant death to the kongs while using the Banana Juice.
