If you like juicing then you probably have wondered what to do with the amazingly vibrant pulp that it’s left; it’s so colorful that it feels like throwing the shavings of a rainbow in the trash. I’m here to tell you something you’ve probably already suspected: you don’t have to! There are a dozen different things you can do with it – from using it to fertilize your garden (my mom swears by this method) to making soup with it. However practical those things are, I am here to show you how to make a delicious dessert out of juice pulp. In this particular case, and because I love drinking carrot juice, we are talking about an all-time favorite: A Vegan Juice-Pulp Carrot Bread.

This carrot bread recipe is guiltless two ways: every time you make it you are wasting less of the planet’s resources and getting your greens in. All the ingredients will feed your body as well as your taste-buds. These gorgeous plant-based ingredients have a twofold mission: to make the carrot bread taste delicious and to give you a clean, cruel-free source of energy. Does it sound too good to be true? Let me show you:

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Prepare your bread pan. I like to line mine with parchment paper.
  3. Start with the dry ingredients and combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
  4. Now combine the wet ingredients and mix the date sugar, coconut oil, vanilla extract and dairy-free yogurt together.
  5. Add the two together and don’t forget to mix in the carrot pulp at the very end.
