Ima Juicin'

Yep, I got my juice on.

Do you ever sit back and imagine how your life will look in the future? I do. And have for as long as I can remember. I can't remember when it was, but quite a few years ago, juicing popped into that picture. If you read my blog often, you know that I'm a smoothy nut. Now I might just loose it. :)

Nick found this old beaut at a yard sale while I was away in Kansas. It's an Acme Challenger. I don't know anything about this model, that's just what it says on the front. haha.

Today I got to use it for the first time.

It started off as Pear Strawberry (dark)Grape Juice.

Then I decided to add some celery to round it out a bit. Which topped it off with some greenish foam. (check out the last picture.)

It made quite a mess because the pear mushed up inside instead of coming out as "juice".

After I took it apart I was able to retrieve the pear 'mush' and add it to the drink.

The pulp was so pretty and reminded me of this painting.

Any tips or recipes from fellow juicers?


  1. So you forgot to let us know how it tasted? Looks interesting.

  2. it tasted pretty good. we have also made carrot juice and that was delicious!!
