Juicing is an effortless way to use up fruit and veg, as well as pack in your five a day on the go. But what happens to all that left over goodness that lies hidden within the leftover pulp? Save money, nutrients and waste by transforming your juice pulp into one of these fabulously free (and embarrassingly easy) recipes:
Juice pulp, a handful of oats, a tablespoon of flax and a drizzle of oil make the most delicious (and incredibly easy) veggie burgers. Simply mash together with your favourite spices and herbs and shape into burger patties. Beetroot, apple and ginger is a particularly winning combo!
- Homemade fruit lollies
Both fruit and Vegetable juice pulp make amazing homemade ice lollies (popsicles) when added with a little fruit juice and frozen in lolly moulds. Experiment and add a kick with ginger, chilli or fennel.
- Natural facemasks
Mix pulp with yogurt or oil for a quick and decadent natural face mask! Cucumber based ones are soothing and citrus based ones are great for brightening dull skin. Experiment and have fun trying it out!
- Doggy Treats
Give your furry best friend a bit of juice treat and Bake pulp leftovers in small bite size dollops for very easy doggy treats.
- Nutrition boost for children
Adding juice pulp to sauces, soups and even cakes is a fantastic way to sneak in some extra fruit and veg onto our little ones plates. I challenge them to spot the spinach pulp smuggled into that bolognaise!
