Pineapple Fennel Juice


So much seems to happen between updates these days! 

-I'll start with the most exciting—I'm an aunt! We welcomed Briar (my name suggestion!) and Rayah into our family at the end of March, and I finally got to meet them this passed week.

-I ended my contract with the ski hill bakery once the season was complete. Running the bakery was a great experience, and one I'd unlikely have been given in any other circumstance, but the ski hill lifestyle was just not for me.

-I'm between jobs, so I'm back in Ontario for a few weeks to visit friend & family.

-The next step is Nelson, BC, and I'm super excited.

Now onto the sweet, sweet juice...


If this juice wasn't so delicious, I would never make it. Pineapple is the most annoying fruit to juice—it clogs up my juicer, and needs to be strained a second time to remove all the pulp. But the juice...is just so good. So I alternate between hard and soft fruit, pump the plunger, and it's always worth it.


This recipe makes a substantial amount of juice, because I like to juice the entire pineapple in one session. Also, this is my favourite juice, so I can drink a lot of it.

(makes over 1L of juice; inspired by Live Food Bar)

Ingredients
  • 1 pineapple, medium sized, peeled
  • 1 green apple
  • 4-5 stalks celery
  • 2 small lemons 
  • 1/4 bulb fennel 
  • water (see note)
Instructions

1. Process ingredients through juicer, alternating hard and soft fruit. 
2. Strain and refrigerate in a sealed container.

Note: This juice is very sweet, so I sometimes water down my portions to suit my tastes.
