Make a new fruit bread? Answered

I just recently starting juicing fruits making great drink for myself however I am not happy that I always end up throwing out all the pulp or what gets seperated from the juice.  I was wondering if there was a method or if anyone had ever made a bread from this left over chaos.  Thanks.

Must be very tasty food

actually you would be much better just eating the fruit as you will be consuming twice as much of the sugar without the fiber benefit

Juicer pulp is great for compost! It also contains a lot of fiber, so you can certainly add it to a lot of dishes. Tomato sauces and casseroles (think lasagna) are perfect ways to sneak in extra veggies, and a great use for "dry" pulp left from veggies. It would also be great in homemade stock.

One of my favorite recipes is a carrot-apple muffin (I should post that here!). I don't have a juicer, but I process them both quite a bit, so I'm sure it would be the same as using the leftover pulp + a little more juice.

Here's a zucchini muffin recipe that uses leftover pulp.
Here's one for puppy treats!

Hmm.  Now I really want a juicer. . . 

You could add sugar-syrup an make a sorbet of sorts.
It'll go in bread easy I'm sure; experiment with it.


Applesauce has long been used as a substitute for the fat to make cakes lighter. I would think you can do the same with your pulp. It may work out better in the denser bread recipes like monkey bread. Good luck.

If that doesn't work out, you can always try to make jam to spread on the bread.
