What to Do with All That Pulp?

Don’t let your juice pulp go to waste. There’s so many uses for it.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. If you have a small yard or an organic garden, juice pulp is great for compost!
  6. Some vegetable pulps like cabbage can be used on injuries. Cabbage compresses and taro root compresses are effective when applied to swollen areas.
