pear, fennel and kale juice

DSC_0944

If you ingested a little too much sugar last week like I did a little fresh juice can help counter act the effects.  I don’t know if juice is the answer to all of life’s problems but it definitely gets me feeling a little lighter and healthier after I’ve overindulged.  This is one of my favorite combinations, the fennel adds a nice licorice note and the pear adds sweetness. I love using fennel in my juicer but I must admit I don’t love it if I am blending since it’s so fibrous.  You can easily make this combination in a blender but seed the apple and pear and you might want to strain it before serving.  What’s your favorite juice combination?
