We all agree that freshly made juice give us amazing benefits! But any time I talk to my clients about making and consuming them daily, I hear the question: “but what about the pulp? It seems such a waste to throw it out…”. Well, we felt the same way, so we were constantly creating new ways how to use the left over pulp that we had from making nut milk and vegetable juice. Here are our suggestions.
1. Make brightening, gentle skin exfoliant! Carrot pulp, Lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of raw Honey. Mix it all together, massage into face, neck, chest or all over body and leave for 15min. Wash off with cold water.
2. Add pulp to smoothies for extra fiber and vitamins.
3. Make vegetable broth or soup. I use any combination vegetable pulp with Turmeric and Ginger. For the vegetable broth I boil it for about 30min and then strain it. For soup, boil it for about 30min, add spices and blend it in Vitamix.
4. Compost any pulp. When you think about it, farmers did it all the time.
5. Make vegan Patties! Ingredients:
*Any green leafy greens and vegetables, like : Parsley, Cilantro, Kale, Cucumber, Broccoli
*Arrow root powder to hold it all together
*Salt and pepper.
Mix all ingredients, make patties and saute in the pan with Coconut or Avocado oil.
6. Take any vegetable pulp, add spices, almonds or cashews and mix it in food processor. Makes an amazing stuffing for tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini.
7. Add some pulp into your dog food.
8. Any nut (Almond, Cashew, Macadamia…) pulp after you strain nut milk can be added into muffin, cupcake or any cake batter.
Enjoy your juice, especially now that you don’t have to feel guilty about throwing out the pulp!
