Cinnamon Licorice Veggie Juice

I am not a fan of licorice. I have, however, fallen head-over-heels for a little vegetable called fennel which is strangely reminiscent of it in flavor (imagine licorice as a crunchy veggie if you can ;)). Along with juicing it and thinly slicing it into salads I absolutely love my Sweet-and-Salty Fennel Fries and frequently return to Lauren’s Iced Carrot No-Cappuccino. Today I’d like to bring to you that cappuccino’s cacao-free cousin:

Ingredients:

2 lbs carrots
2 heads romaine
1-2 bulbs fennel
liquid stevia (I use 4-5 droppers, it ends up pretty sweet)
a hearty dose of cinnamon

Juice the fennel, romaine, and carrots and pour into a blender. Add stevia and cinnamon to your liking and blend. You can also just stir in the cinnamon and stevia but I like mine frothy.

    Thanks for the recipe,

    I would like to know your opinion on fruit consuption. I have read many controversary about it one say it is healthy like 80/10/10 diet other say that fructose is treated by liver as toxin so even in fruit should be limited and not to eat lots of fruit. Thanks

      My personal experience with fruit has been that it is very clean and I did best avoiding it for a period of time until MY body was cleaner. I’m on the fence about the sugar/fructose issue or whether or not it feeds yeast but I do know that I have a seriously kick-ass colonic the day after I eat some fruit as it seems to loosen up a lot of old stuff. I eat it carefully and in limited quantities though I’d imagine I’ll be able to do more as time goes on.

        Thanks.
        How much stevia do you use? I am addicted to it:-) I do have nunatural one and use it in 2 weeks. I am use it everywhere in green juice, salad, dressing, pudings just everywhere. I do not know if it is safe, but do not have any health problem from it.

        Stevia is such a life-saver! I use the alcohol-free liquid stevia from NuNaturals and use it on absolutely everything as well! I’ve used it for years and in everything that you mentioned above with no adverse affects.

  2. I had a tendency to eschew fennel in my juice until I realized it wasn’t as potent as I imagined – now I love it! I will have to try this combination. Ever since Kris Carr’s ebook came out (which I don’t have as I’m not sure it’s worth it just for the recipes!) I decided I’d pay more attention across the web to new combinations (at least for me) so I could play around a bit more 🙂

      I agree, Kris’s book is really expensive, it’s beautifully put together but probably better for a beginning juicer. Honestly, I’ve NEVER followed a recipe book for juicing, I’ve just experimented alot. Doing it every day requires some creativity to stay interested I think 🙂 Definitely try the fennel, it really is quite mild!

  3. May I ask… what kind of juicer do you use? 🙂
