Gentle and delicious, fennel lends aromatic flare to simple apple-pear juice. Helpful for regulating your digestive tract and alleviating constipation, this recipe is especially nice in the fall when ingredients are fresh-picked and abundant.
- 2 apples
- 2 pears
- 1 cup fennel
Blend all ingredients together.
For more fiber, you can add a teaspoon of ground flaxseeds.
Pectin, a carbohydrate found in both pears and apples, forms a gel in the intestines and absorbs toxins as it moves through. Pectin also removes cholesterol and toxic metals like mercury and lead from the body. Fennel soothes your nerves and can help relieve gas and headaches.
