Do you love to use your juicer at home? what about all the pulp that get's leftover, did you know there are many ways to reuse it rather than just throw it away?

Aside from being wasteful, throwing away your juice pulp means missing out on these delicious food ideas.

Here are the 10 best ways to reuse juice pulp:


Add it to your next soup to thicken and boost the fibre and nutrient density. Or, make a veggie broth by boiling vegetable pulp with water, herbs, and spices, then straining.


Add to your favourite vegetarian burger recipe. It adds flavour, texture, moisture and nutrition.


Use veggie pulp to add nutrient density to mac n' cheese or pasta sauce, or layer into a lasagne.


Use fruit pulp to make frozen pulp-sidles, or fruit pulp ice cubes to put in drinks.


Add it to your next smoothie to add in additional fibre.


Use in DIY skincare recipes like scrubs, masks, and soap. A simple face mask is mushing the pulp to a moist consistency and then applying to your face (keeping in mind softer ingredients like carrot or cucumber pulp is better than acidic ones).

Mix pulp into baked goods like muffins, cakes, bread, dehydrated or baked cookies, and granola bars.
