So what makes this recipe so special? Fennel!

Fennel is a common ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that it makes a meannnn juice as well. If you have not had fennel before, it has a flavor reminiscent licorice or anise. It adds the perfect touch of sweetness and a kick to earthy and bland green juices, and it is our new favorite ingredient to juice! Plus, the fennel bulb is also loaded with vitamin C to help boost your immune system and is a good source of folic acid and potassium.

Juicing has been a common practice in our house since we moved here in May. For one thing, we wanted to get into better habits and consume more fruits and veggies, and secondly, it has worked WONDERS in decreasing our food waste. We get a produce box every week from Imperfect Produce and it has been awesome because we keep a plethora of fruits and veggies in the house, but it has at times also been overwhelming because sometimes we can end up with too much on our hands. The solution? Juice it upppp. Our boxes come on Thursdays so every either Tuesday or Wednesday, we make a big batch of juice. Sometimes the juice isn’t so tasty, but sometimes it is awesome– it just depends on what we need to use up. We have a slow juicer so we are able to store our juice for up to 3 days in the refrigerator, so that helps a lot too.

Easy Cucumber Fennel Juice


  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Description

Need an idea to use up fennel? Juice it! This cucumber fennel juice is super easy to make, requires simple ingredients, tastes awesome AND has an option to make it in a blender if you don’t have a juicer. Score!


Ingredients

  • 3 cups kale (or any greens of choice)
  • 23 medium apples (we used Fuji)
  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1 head of celery
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1/2 bunch (1 cup) parsley
  • 1-inch fresh ginger root
  • 1 lemon*

Instructions

  1. Wash all of the produce well before using. Chop all of the produce into small-medium pieces (depending on your juicer).
  2. To make juice in a regular juicer: Run all of the ingredients through the juicer. Discard or compost the pulp. Pour the juice over ice if desired and enjoy!
  3. To make juice in your blender:  Add all of the ingredients into your blender along with 2 cups of water. Blend on high for 1 minute or until smooth. Place a large piece of cheesecloth or a nut milk bag over a large bowl and slowly pour the blended mixture through to strain. Pick up the cheesecloth or nut milk bag and gently squeeze out the juice. Discard or compost pulp. When using a blender, the juice may come out a bit warm so you can either pour it over ice or set it into the refrigerator for an hour or so if you prefer it cold.

Notes

  • We like to keep the skin on at least half of the lemon. It can bring a strong bitter taste, but the health benefits outweigh that! Lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself.
