I just scored a sweet deal on a juicer!

Do any of you juice?  If so, what are your favorite combinations/tips and tricks?

 We used to juice a lot. Now just sometimes. One of my absolute favorites is apple, carrot and a little ginger. I've found that you can add fresh spinach to just about anything and cannot taste it. Cucumber has more flavor than you realize, and kale is great added to just about anything, but you have to remember to remove the center stem/vein.

The kids all love when I make popcicles out of apple and carrots, with a little of the pulp added in.

We juice a few times a week. My kids' favorite is a mix of orange, carrot, grapes and apples.

We do a lot of different ones.

Blueberry, raspberry, strawberry and kiwi with half of a lemon and a bit of ginger

A V-8 type juice with tomatoes, carrots, celery, spinach

Oooh, those sound delicious!

I'll definitely have to try popsicles this summer :)  Thanks for the suggestion!

My kids really enjoy juicing since they get to pick their favorite mixes. My 5 year old loves apple juice and I'll say this.... Store bought apple juice has nothing on freshly juiced.

We had a juicer, but it fell apart.  I've never really tried it except for the time we were using it for a ton of grapes we brought home and it died.
