As long as the juicer is getting all the good stuff out of the fruit then that would be a much simpler option than fighting with the fruit goop left behind by fermentation.

I made a strawberry rhubarb saison this last season.  I simmered the strawberries with the rhubarb for a bit (maybe 15') before covering and letting cool.  I then added this to secondary and racked on top.  Easily one of my top beers.  It did have some pectin haze, but when people tried it, they stopped caring about the cloudiness.
