Juicing for a healthy lifestyle .Waste not want not.

I have been juicing a lot lately and really enjoying the freshness of it
Today we had a mixed juice of carrots,pineapple,apple,banana
It is delicious.

The one thing I don't like about juicing,is the pulp that is left after separating the juice
I think that the pulp is all the fibre,which we should be eating

Sooooooo, I mixed it with a little wholemeal flour,oil,eggs and milk
baked it in the microwave.
I think at this point I must confess,I did bake it in the oven first in cake tins
but it didn't set. So I packed it all into pudding basins and went for the microwave try.

What is the saying?
The proof of the pudding is in the eating

It was delicious with a dollop of plain yoghurt.
Also, so healthy.

Waste not want not.

Do you juice? if so what do you make with the pulp
My brother makes cakes with his and says I didn't add enough flour
for the amount of pulp I had

I also came up with the idea of a pastry base
Pile on the pulp and then top with meringue
That's a trial for next time.

Please join me for my usual linky parties
The links are on my side bar

Have a nice day

Good Morning Jeanette Ann, Well I never, I stopped juicing because I did not like wasting all the pulp as there is so much fibre in it. We started eating the whole fruits again, but now, you have given me a new idea to use the pulp.
Thank you so much, this is a lovely idea.
Best Wishes

Now that is a genius. I don't juice because I think we should eat the pulp and all. So I just eat the fruit.
Now I have found a way to use it, I will have to try.

I think using the pulp as a pudding is brilliant! It it's just veggie juice, you could easily add it to a soup or stew for extra goodness.

I will pass this on to my son, they drink a lot of fresh juice and have leftover pulp too, I said that they could use the vege pulp in meatloaf or meatballs.

What a great idea! I had a juicer but have switched to a Vita Mix now. Thank you for sharing this idea!

Your juice sounds great! I eat the whole fruits myself but wouldn't mind trying juice.

I do love blended juices, but agree that the fiber and nutrients in the pulp and skins are wasted. This is an interesting way to use them. I wonder if you could also do a sort of fruit crisp with oats, butter and a bit of brown sugar?

Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great weekend!
