That is is an amazing way to use all the pulp that is left behind when juicing. YEAP! I use the pulp, we are five people that take juices around here. So, you can imagine the amount of pulp I throw away! So, I ‘ve been searching for ways to use the pulp and this is one of them.

If you do not do juicing, it is ok, just use carrots. I find juicing an amazing way to fill our body with tons of vitamins and minerals, but I know it can get expensive.
