Have you ever juiced fennel before? Hats off to you if you have juiced fennel, but I have never juiced a fennel. A few days ago, I had the pleasure of juicing fennel. I thought I would not like the fennel and apple juice, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I used the fennel and apple juice recipe in Clean, written by Dr. Alejandro Junger. Since I am following the Clean program (I am on day-10 1/2), I thought it would be fun to try the fennel and apple juice recipe.
I am glad I had the courage to try it, because it is a delicious juice. The fennel, has a licorice flavor and is not overpowering in the juice. It is the perfect blend of fennel and apple with a burst of refreshing flavor.
I was so excited about juicing fennel that I had my daughter help with the juicing process. Getting your child involved in juicing is fun and a great way to teach them more about fruits and vegetables. They also get to see how juice is made and participate in the juice making process.
