Beetroot Pulp Brownies

This recipe is a 2-for-1, because not only do you get some delicious and fresh juice, you also get to use the leftover pulp from the juice, to make some fantastic brownies! If that isn't a win-win, then I don't know what is.


First, you need to make your juice! Most of this comes down to taste and preference, but in this recipe we used:

  • 1 juicer

  • 1 large or 2 small beets, peeled and sliced

  • 1 lemon, peeled and quartered

  • 2 oranges or other citrusfruit, peeled and quartered

  • 1 ginger root

  • 2 apples, quartered

And then you just add the veggies and fruits one by one to your juicer, until you have a delicious jug of juice to enjoy! Remember to save the pulp from the juicer, since we're going to use this for this brownie recipe by .506.
