Hellooo, goddess vibes!
Sipping this green juice just makes you feel groovy all over. It has subtle spice with the addition of fresh ginger, a bit of sweetness from the fennel and green apple, and some vibrant tang from the celery we all either love or hate.
Celery haters —> If you’re not a fan of this rather notable flavor, I want to encourage you to try this recipe anyway. The health benefits of celery are so outstanding, that it might be worth overcoming the initial gag reflex. Try doubling the fennel and halving the celery to start, if you’d like.
But wait, let’s talk about the nutritional benefits of this glowing green juice for a second.
what is it good for? absolutely everything.
FENNEL — soothing for gas, indigestion, hypertension, & protective against cancer
CELERY — hangover cure, liver tonic, eases constipation, breaks up gallstones, treats arthritis, gout, and rheumatism, increases energy, reduce blood pressure, cancer prevention, may be useful for migraines
GREEN APPLE — promote beneficial intestinal bacteria, lower cholesterol, support regular bowel movements, protective against heart disease, cancer, & asthma
GINGER — stimulates digestion, increases circulation (which promotes cleansing through skin, bowels, and kidneys), boosts respiratory health, supports nervous system functioning, normalizes blood pressure, supports liver health
Makes approximately 40 oz.
1 full head of celery
1 full fennel bulb, stalks + fronds
2 green apples, cored + sliced
3-5 inches fresh ginger, peeled*
1 cup filtered water*
lemon or lime wedges, for serving
Wash all of the ingredients.
Trim off the edges of the celery and fennel if they are not looking super fresh.
Run all ingredients through a juicer.
Once all ingredients have been processed, add 1 cup of water to the remaining juice.
Transfer to an air-tight container, or divide amongst glasses, if sharing.
Serve with an optional lemon or lime wedge.
Adjust ginger depending on how spicy you like the juice.
I use a slow juicer, which produces very little pulp and keeps a ton of fiber in tact, so I like to add 1 cup of water to thin out the juice. This is optional and you can adjust for the consistency you like.
Drinking fresh-pressed vegetable juice is an excellent way to fill up on antioxidants and phytonutrients that ward off disease and promote optimal health.
However, I wouldn’t recommend going overboard on the fruit, and limit consumption to 1-2 cups per day. Drinking too much juice, especially on an empty stomach, can cause our blood sugar to spike and fall, which is not ideal for mood stability or hunger regulation.
