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!
A green juice recipe, really? I know, I know! This may seem a bit boring compared to our more recent recipes, but trust us on this one! This ain’t your average green juice and you’re going to want to try this out.
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.
