Fennel and orange go well together in salad but it's also delicious in a green smoothie. This green smoothie might be an acquired taste for some, but if you like the taste of aniseed and liquorice it's a treat.
N.B. As the weather gets cooler I don't add ice to the smoothies.
Orange and Fennel Green Smoothie
- 1 orange , skinned and pits removed ( the pits of oranges are extremely bitter)
- 2-3 leaves of swiss chard, chopped to smaller pieces
- 1 small bulb of fennel, chopped to smaller pieces
- 1 cucumber, chopped to small pieces
- a glass of water
Add water, swiss chard , and cucumber to blender first. Then add in the orange. Blend until all the ingredients are incorporated. Blend until ingredients are incorporated.
With love, and simplicity
