Nothing quenches like a glass of fresh, clean juice. What better way to get those nutrients right into your body so you can power through your day? Once you start juicing, it’s easy get hooked on all those good feels.

Ugh. But, what about all of that leftover pulp? Instead of taking our burst of energy with a side of guilt over the waste in the bin, we got a little creative and put that extra food to good use. We’re sharing a couple of our favorite ideas, developed after a smooth and yummy juice blend made creamy with the addition of our Unsweetened Almondmilk beverage. Get the recipe here: Creamy Carrot and Kale Juice

But, there’s so much good stuff left! Since we’re always thinking about our furry family members, the first invention came about with the puppers’ in mind. These little biscuits are full of veggie flavor that your dog will absolutely love! See our recipe below.

  1. I abhor waste and try to save my juice pulp to use. I also save my almond milk pulp for cookies, muffins etc. I’ve been cooking for decades but only recently have tried to cook vegan since I have a vegan daughter (who is very influential!!). Recently I used carrot and beet pulp added to drained canned beans and a bunch of seasonings to make “beanballs” (or meatless meatballs.) I’m still experimenting… the beanballs didn’t stick together very well (I tried adding oatmeal but haven’t eaten those yet). But they tasted amazing on top of spaghetti with fresh tomatoes and red peppers. I might go full-on vegan if I can eat deliciousness like this!!
