Pulp-tastic: 9 Recipes Made From Perfectly Good Pulp!

0

So you’ve made a smoothie and now the hard task stands before you: cleaning the juicer. Juice pulp is everywhere, and scooping it into the bin is a messy job, but it’s worth it when we’re sippin’ on our green juice, feeling our bodies flood with green goodness. But all along we should have been using that juice pulp to make delicious recipes that are super healthy and delicious. From pancakes and even scrambled eggs to meatballs and burgers, you’ll be scrambling to make more juices just so you can get creative in the kitchen.

So, what benefits can we expect when we eat the leftover pulp? A great boost of fiber! While all of the vitamins and minerals tend to end up in the juice, the remaining juice pulp contains nearly all of the natural fiber from the fruits and vegetables. Sure, you could throw these shreds into the compost, but why do that when you can make such a versatile range of pulp recipes? And the pulp isn’t limited to fruits and veggies. As anyone who makes their own nut milk will attest, there is a ton of leftover pulp here, too. Dive in and find out how you can use up your leftovers!

1. Almond Bites with Maca, Vanilla + Flax

Do you make your own nut milk? Then you’ll know you’re left with nut pulp. Why not turn this pulp into some delicious snack for the week ahead? In this recipe, the almond nut pulp is combined with a range of ingredients that are super good for you, from maca (great for balancing hormones and giving a boost of energy) to camu camu (loaded with vitamin C). Combine this with vitamin E rich almonds, and these little bites are going to feed both your brain and your skin. And they taste delicious!

2. Juice Pulp Pancakes 

I love to use juice pulp in a pancake recipe, usually because I like to make fresh juice WITH my pancakes, so it means less waste and more to eat! Strawberry pulp is turned into a whipped cream, but if this feels too indulgent for breakfast you could switch out cream for coconut cream. Into the pancakes goes pineapple pulp, and the result is gorgeous light and fluffy pancakes the whole family will love.

3. Carrot Cake Juice Pulp Muffins

These muffins make the perfect healthy snack, and the main ingredient? Carrot pulp! These carrot cake muffins are made with a range of natural sugars, from the dates to the coconut flakes. The nutmeg and cinnamon add a delicious warming spice, and oats work perfectly to bind these together. Store them in a lock tight container and they make the perfect on-the-go snack.

4. Green Juice Pulp Guacamole 

Who doesn’t love a delicious bowl of guacamole? The juice pulp added to this guac recipe adds a wonderful texture and makes it nice and chunky. When you buy smooth guacamole in shops or even as restaurants, it typically had a filler such as sour cream or mayo added to it to create the smoothness, but who the hell wants that? It’s all about the chunky dip! And the juice pulp in this recipe is a combination of kale, spinach, lemon, ginger, cilantro and celery so you’re getting a great boost of greens!

5. Carrot Juice Pulp Crackers

I love making crackers at home because they’re super easy to do, and you can make them much healthier than what you’d buy in shops. And since you’re juicing, why not throw in some carrot pulp? This recipe is also gluten free, which will spare you the excessive charges they slap on gluten free crackers in the store. I’m thinking, these would go well with the guacamole above . . .

The leftover juice pulp really adds to the texture of the filling, and is a great way to use up veggie pulp. And with the boost of greens, this quiche makes for a great breakfast or brunch.

These vegetable kebabs take next to no time to make, and can be be thrown into wraps for a quick and easy lunch recipe. This recipe uses pineapple pulp, but you could use any pulp you have on hand.

8. Ultimate Raw Pizza

While great, pizza often leaves me feeling like I need to unbutton my jeans afterward. So I’m loving this raw pizza recipe that is topped with an abundance of goodness, with a crust that won’t leave you feeling bloated and sluggish. And into the crust can go that leftover nut pulp from when you’re made nut mylk. Once made you can top it with whatever you fancy, but fresh onions, avocado, tomatoes and mushrooms sound like a great place to start, yum!

9. 6 Ingredient Veggie Burger

Not only does this veggie burger recipe have just SIX ingredients, but it’s also packed with fiber, and beneficial nutrients that are going to make you look and feel great. The leftover juice pulp is from cucumber, carrot, celery and kale juice, so it’s bursting with green goodness! So while you can drink your juice and cleanse your cells in the morning, come the evening you can also eat the fiber and the remaining vitamins from the leftover pulp in a tasty recipe.
