This tropical pink-tinged juice gets its zing from pineapple and a bit of fresh ginger!

Snagged a Jack LaLanne Power Juicer at the thrift store yesterday for $15. Looks brand new. Washable parts in the dishwasher right now. Thinking apple carrot something for the maiden voyage. Any suggestions?

Some folks don't care for "greens"and it's a great way to consume more of them, if you don't mind the green color.

I usually don't drink drink juice because it seems like a quick way for me to take in too many calories. And because I don't have a juicer. I would think you could have some fun coming up with some interesting and fresh tasting drinks. Here is an interesting short article: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/juicing/AN02107 Sounds like you scored a good deal.

I juice everyday and have for years. I would never go back. Its helped me to lose weight, feel better and I find that the taste is much nicer. I even use the pulp. Don't throw anything away.

Dd has wanted a juicer for a while but I'm a huge proponent of eating the whole fruit/veggie. We do eat tons of fruit and veggies (me more veggies than fruit) but I figured at this price why not? We also hardly every drink just juice. I do keep a frozen oj concentrate in fridge for the occasional single drink but mostly for cooking/recipes. We used some apples and pears that were textually challenged and added carrots and a few guava. Was sweeter than either of us would usually want but, hey, first go and not bad.I will def be saving pulp and adding to things, or at the least, it will get composted. Thanks for the link Peggy, experimenting will be fun. campergramma, I think dd will love your apple cinnamon drink, she puts cinnamon in so many things. I wouldn't have thought to add to something like that. Rosebud, I'd be interested in hearing the various ways you make use of the pulp. LadySparkle, We like greens. I told dd I was gonna be adding beets too, she is not a fan but said she'd try it before she knocked it. Thanks all for your input.

Hi Pamela, regarding the pulp. When I make carrot/spinach juice I will just eat the pulp with some applesauce, or put it in meatloaf. I like apple/carrot/ginger with muffins or cookies. Sometimes adding it to sauce or gravies is really good. I will keep it in glass jars in the fridge until I need it. I will sprinkle over top of my salads as well. I have quite a selection of juice recipes so the possibilities are endless.

I was reading reviews for the machine and one person used cukes, kiwi, onion, carrots, lemon, red cabbage, beets, and celery. Quite the combo but I'm in for trying.
