How to make green fennel juice - The Little Plantation

I've posted some really long blog posts recently and you'll be glad to hear this one's gonna be short and sweet. Why? Cuz I've got a massive nutrition exam coming up at the end of the week and I am waaayyy behind schedule. Which in turn means I'm in a total panic :(

BUT I made a commitment to this blog and to you so here is my bi-weekly post as promised. And, it's a pretty good one too. In fact it's a super good one - my all time favourite green juice! Yup, this delicious Green Fennel Juice is one of the juices that helped me find my green path and I bet it will help you on your wayy too.

What I love about this juice, is that it's not too sweet, yet sweet enough to be enjoyed even by my harshest critic AKA my 5-year-old son. 
Be prepared to taste something a little bit different, yet super fresh and cleansing, just what you need on a hot summer's day :). I hope you enjoy the recipe and I'll be back with lots of exciting news soon and some yummy recipe soon.  

BTW I will try and post daily on instagram even in the run up to the exam, so feel free to follow me there too if you like ;)

I found the recipe for this juice in the book Crazy Sexy Kitchen by Kris Carr (whose fighting spirit and joyous nature is so inspiring). 

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2


8 stalks of celery
2 fennel bulbs
2 green apples
1 pear
1/2 lemon
1 inch piece of ginger
1 - 2 handful of leafy greens

Wash and prep all the ingredients, removing the stem of the fennel, and the core of the pear and apple. Peel the lemon too and then juice all the ingredients. I added some ice cubes to the juice at the end as it was boiling hot in London the day we made it, but you can enjoy it just as it is.

Tip 1: I used some green leaves (spinach and rocket) as well as some radicchio, which was left over from another dish I made a few days earlier. Feel free to be creative and juice a range of different green or red leaves, and see which you like best.
Tip 2: I used some chopped green apples and a slice of lemon to garnish, which added a touch of fun to the drink. Totally optional though :)
