A good blender makes an excellent alternative to juicers until you can afford one. Blender juicing works best with juicier fruits, such as peaches, apricots, pears, grapes, berries, and oranges. If you own a high-powered blender such as the Vitamix or Blendtec... then you will have a better chance pulverizing the heck out of firmer fruits and veggies, which will provide you with a smoother juice.
