Kale, Fennel & Lemon juice
Kale fennel & lemon juice for is not for the weak at heart. This is a juice that is full of healthy nutrients, health benefits and a great way to challenge your eating habits.
I reduced my sugar intake years ago and I am loath to jump back on the sugar train. Processed foods and foods that are packaged for us are often made with entirely too much sugar. One of the ways I reduced my sugar was by juicing. I juiced for many reasons. But one of the things it was extremely effective at was making sure I could taste the sugar I was ingesting afterwards. Kale fennel & lemon juice is pretty close to my go to juice when I was juicing. I would drink at least one of these a day.
This is not a sweet juice, not an entry level juice. It is a taste of alkaline, vitamins and minerals that your body needs to remain healthy. I love kale fennel and lemon juice. I make smaller portions for my husband and juice an extra apple in it for my daughter, but my whole family will drink this juice, especially since they know how good it is for them! We all want to be at our best health.
Reasons to drink this juice:
- Its alkaline! often people who are healing stomach or inflammation related issues are suffering from too much acidity in their diet. This juice will not contribute but help rebalance your PH.
- Fresh ginger & turmeric. These two roots are anti-inflammatory, have anti-bacterial properties, are both anti-oxidants and calm nausea, just to name a few reasons (there are more)
- Full of vitamins and minerals. Kale is the most nutrient dense vegetable on the planet, vitamin A, B6, C, K, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and that’s just one of the vegetables in this recipe.
Kale, lemon, fennel juice

- cutting board
- 2 bunches kale
- ½ bulb fennel
- 1 rib celery
- 1 each lemon
- 1 each apple
- ⅓ each long english cucumber
- 6 sprigs mint
- ½ inch turmeric
- 1 inch fresh ginger
- Wash vegetables if needed.The best way to juice is alternate drier vegetables with wetter, more water filled vegetables.
- Juice ginger and turmeric first with celery or cucumber to help push the flavours and juices through the extractor.Then kale, fennel, apple piece, kale celery, lemon piece, etc until you end with lemon or apple.This helps prevent your juicer from binding up on the dry kale pieces.
- Drink juice as soon as you make it. The juice loses nutrients if it sits out too long. When not drinking, keep cold and covered.
