Don’t let your juice pulp go to waste. There’s so many uses for it.
- Make a really nutritious mask for your face. I like using the cucumber and papaya pulp. Some citrus pulps like lemon will help fade age spots and help to minimize wrinkles. Add a spoon of sugar and olive oil to lemon pulp and make a nice exfoliator.
- Sooth and condition your skin with cucumber, carrot, squash, and pumpkin pulp. Smear the pulp on sunburns, eczema and psoriasis, let set for 15-20 minutes. Cucumber is very soothing.
- Feed it to your dog or cat. Save in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Then mix with the food or try feeding it to them by itself with a few drops of olive or coconut oil.
- Use the juice pulps in recipes. Use it for salsa, muffin or pancake recipes, make fruit leathers in a dehydrator, add to veggie dips, veggie burgers or regular meat dishes.
- If you have a small yard or an organic garden, juice pulp is great for compost!
- Some vegetable pulps like cabbage can be used on injuries. Cabbage compresses and taro root compresses are effective when applied to swollen areas.
